Yep, you read that right! Chickpea cookies! Cookies made from chickpeas! I had seen a few variations of this recipe online before but was always sceptical. I’ve had quite a sweet tooth recently and so has Harry. We had a can of chickpeas in the cupboard so, inspired by online recipes, I decided to have a play and see what I could make. I was amazed by the end result. So easy to make and they don’t taste at all like chickpeas, just cookies! My fussy husband usually hates my ‘creative’ makes in the kitchen but even he just thought they were normal cookies and enjoyed it, so for anyone looking for a healthier alternative to cookies and looking to get extra protein into their child’s diet I’d definitely recommend giving these a go!

When he did wake up and get one he really enjoyed his tasty treat.

When Harry was younger he went through phases of being very constipated. He would go weeks without a soiled nappy, his tummy would be rock hard and we could see he was very uncomfortable. I found that Ella’s kitchen prunes pouches really helped to ‘get him moving again’ and because I didn’t mind helping him eat with a spoon it worked well for us. It did get me thinking though, what would I do if I did proper baby led weaning and didn’t want to use a spoon? Prunes can be an acquired taste and texture and Harry never liked eating them unless they were puréed (by Ella’s Kitchen of course, not mummy!)
