Happy Halloween! No better way to celebrate this spooky, sweet holiday than with a chocolatey treat: Dark Chocolate Chickpea Spooky Bites.
These coconut flour cookies are so easy to make and come together in less than twenty five minutes. Coconut flour is a high fiber, naturally sweet flour alternative that I love to bake with. It requires a higher liquid to flour ratio so these cookies call for three eggs. Needless to say, these are a higher protein cookie than your standard one.
Dark chocolate is my candy of choice. High in free-radical fighting antioxidants and lower in sugar than the milk variety. It’s a nutritious indulgence in moderation.
Instead of chocolate chips, these are made with Lebby DARK CHOCOLATE Chickpea Snacks.
I shared these on Good Food Friday on ABC WCIV Lowcountry Live a few months ago as a nutritious way to satisfy a sweet craving. Chickpeas are a great source of plant protein and fiber. These are dry roasted – so no oil is used and although they are sweet, these only have 6 grams per snack! You can find them here.
