2g baking soda
a pinch of salt
50g unrefined agave nectar (or other syrups)
20g unrefined coconut palm sugar
pinch of vanilla
1C chickpea flour
2 tbsp shredded coconut
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 pinche salt
1 1/2 tbsp water
3 1/2 tbsp unrefined agave nectar (or other syrups)
2 tbsp unrefined coconut palm sugar
a pinch of vanilla
Makes about 6 medium sized cookies.
Bake for 8-10min at 180 degrees celsius or about 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you wish so you can add some cacao powder, chocolate chips or even pastry color to the recipe. If you do add cacao powder I recommend you to take out the same amount of flour as you added cacao powder. This recipe is really playful. I’ve done pink ones, coconut chocolate ones, chocolate chip and double chocolate chip cookies as the photos. Everything turned out great.
Information about the ingredients.
– Widely used in Mediterranean & Middle Eastern stews and casseroles.
– Rich source of proteins, iron copper, folate and fiber.
Fiber has blood sugar related health benefits. it’s good for blood fat regulation as it lowers the levels of LDL, cholesterol, and triglyceride in the body.
– Derives from Agave plants grown in Mexico.
– Agave nectar has a slightly lower glycemic index than table sugar but has the same calorie as sugar (4kcal per gram). yet it’s about 1 1/2 time sweeter than table sugar.
– It’s mostly fructose and also glucose. Glucose is the primary energy source of the brain and is also a source of energy for the cells throughout the body. This energy helps cells carry out nerve cell conduction, muscle cell contraction, active transport and the production of chemical substances.
– Low in cholesterol and sodium.
– Good source of manganese. Manganese is a trace mineral that is present in tiny amounts in the body. Found mostly in bones, the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. It helps the body form connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factors, and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation. Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function.
– But shredded coconut it’s high in saturated fat so don’t overdo it.
Unrefined coconut palm sugar:
– It’s low glycemic which helps for a slow absorption into the bloodstream.
– It’s a good source of – magnesium and nitrogen which regulates blood sugar levels and blood pressure. They help prevent and manage hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. – Zinc which is necessaire for mental development. – Potassium is electrolytes that helps with muscular strength, cramps, diabetes maintenance, and brain function. – Calcium is good for the bones, it also reduces high blood pressure and kidney stones and aids in weight management. – But not to forget coconut sugar contains 16 vital amino acids, the building blocks for all life.
Bon appetit 😉
