a blogger’s dozen: gabrielle’s vegan chickpea cookies (hippie go lucky)

1I am so, so, so excited to be featuring a favourite site of mine today. Gabrielle is the brilliant mind behind the whimsical, simplistic, cat-admiring, vegan-devotee lifestyle blog, Hippie Go Lucky. With a name like that, how could you not visit her site and fall in love with what she has to offer? I love how every one of Gabrielle’s photographs seem to portray their own little story. There is so much goodness and warmth with every post. For those of you who are looking for a cleaner and more natural way to live, she never fails to offer her own realistic views and advice on what it’s really like to try living “earth consciously.” I am beyond thrilled that I got to work with Gabrielle. Ladies and gentlemen, this is what blogging is all about.

3Vegan Chickpea Cookies:

2 cups chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup agave nectar (maple syrup would work too!)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup dried fruits (I used raisins!)

3 tbs oat bran (optional)

1 tbs flax seeds (optional)

Icing:

½ cup peanut butter

2 tbs cocoa powder

2 tbs agave nectar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix everything for the cookies in a food processor (leave out the dried fruits). Blend until smooth (about 3 minutes). Form mixture into 1 1/2″ balls (it will be very sticky, I do this with wet hands). Place on parchment paper and press down to make them look like real cookies. Add the dried fruits on top and bake for 10 minutes. While they cook, mix the peanut butter, cocoa and agave in a bowl. Once the cookies are baked and have cooled down, spread the icing on the bottom of the cookie and stick another one on top. Eat up!

2I seriously can’t get enough of chickpeas. They are so versatile and a great substitute for flour or meat. Ever since becoming a vegan I have been cooking up plenty of recipes with chickpeas, including these awesome cookies! They are chewy and light and go well with a nice cup of tea + they are quite easy and quick to make.  I hope you like them!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
