Green Pea Cookies

Serves 15 cookies

Total Time:

This cookie uses peas and dates for sweetness. It also includes a little tofu, which makes them relatively high protein. So instead of a sugar-y, high calorie dessert, you have a high protein and delicious snack. I like to bring them to potlucks as a healthier alternative to cookies or cakes made with wheat.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup green peas
  • ½ cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup silken tofu, mashed
  • 1 cup nut flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 15 raw almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, combine peas and dates and grind finely. Add in chunks of tofu and blend until smooth. Then add flour, salt and baking dough, mixing until well-incorporated.
  3. Turn out into a mixing bowl and mix a few times with clean hands. Dough should be very soft.
  4. One tablespoon at a time, form dough into flat round cookies. Press down the center with thumb and place on cookie sheet. Garnish each cookie with one almond.
  5. Bake cookies for 25-30 minutes. The exterior will look slightly brown, a bit like falafel.
  6. Cool to room temperature before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
