A New Years Resolution you will keep – Eat More Cookies (super healthy ones of course).

Put on the kettle on! Super Healthy Cookies are here and they are the perfect healthy treat to keep you and your family on the straight and narrow this January!

This January, I have teamed up with Dunnes Stores to fill your cupboards, fridges and freezers with healthy foods your family will truly love. These deliciously soft cookies are made using a very surprising ingredient – the humble chickpea! It took a few tries to get them to the right consistency but these definitely work and my children devoured them so I know I’m onto a winner.

Chickpeas are normally used for more savoury dishes but they work so well as a flour replacement and they pack a punch too! They are an excellent source of iron, are high in fibre, protein and also contain healthy fats.
