Check out these secretly good for you treats made with chickpea flour and tahini! πŸ™‚

The Chic Cook: Chickpeas and tahini got married today!! Β I mean, they were always in love but today they really solidified their commitment to each other. They became as one!!!

Ha! Ok enough of my cheesy analogy.

When I took a bite out of these cookies I had a moment. I thought they were going to be good, but when they came out of the oven and I took a bite out of this moist and delicious concoction I knew I hit the jackpot. The best part is, they are made from chickpea flour! So basically guilt free right?! My husband and I are always looking for healthy snacks and I cannot wait to feed this cookie to him and see the reaction!! Will keep you posted friends!!
