I 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.
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)
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!
I 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!
