Chewy Vegan Chickpea Cookies with Coconut Clusters

Vegan cookies, gluten free, chickpea cookies

These easy and chewy vegan chickpea cookies with coconut clusters are a new go-to for Olympian Julia Murray‘s lunchbox!

In Julia’s words: “The tapioca flour in these vegan cookies gives them that chewy texture, and the chickpea flour gives you the extra plant protein so you’ll feel like a health nut without having to taste the health (if you know what I mean)! Perfect combo.”

Cookies with Benefits:

  • “Chickpea Flour is a great option if you’re sensitive to gluten, plus it’s packed with plant protein with a very mild flavour. It’s anti-inflammatory, and super nutrient-dense, yet lower in calories (compared to wheat flour).
  • Sweet Coconut Seed + Nut clusters are packed with omegas from coconut + flax seeds, iron from pumpkin seeds, and vitamin E from sunflower seeds. They’ve got papaya and cranberries in there for a boost of phytonutrients and digestive enzymes, plus a ton of fibre from the brown rice puffs!
  • Oats are packed with magnesium, fibre and antioxidants. They’ll help balance your blood sugar, lower cholesterol and relieve constipation:)”
