These gluten-free Chocolate Pea Cookies are packed full of a green vegetable and you’d never know it! They’re kid-friendly and make a great breakfast or healthy snack.
Allow me to introduce you to my latest invention – Chocolate Pea Cookies! So many of you loved my Carrot Oat Bars that it got me all excited and I wanted to come up with another new way to add some veggies to a baked good.
I know green can sometimes be a tricky color to get kids excited about, so I decided to depend on some cocoa powder and make a chocolate cookie. Then I snuck a full cup of sweet green peas into the recipes! I really had no idea how they were going to turn out, but much to my surprise, the recipe came out great!
Little Miss has been gobbling these up for the past couple of weeks. And they’re so easy to make. Just steam the peas in the microwave whenever you have a minute and then when it’s time to bake, just dump everything in a food processor, whirl and scoop.
These cookies are gluten-free and dairy-free (as long as you use dairy-free chocolate chips! I like Enjoy Life). They’re nice and fluffy and not too sweet. I use 1/4 cup sugar but if you’d like a slightly sweeter cookie you can increase to 1/3 cup.
Be sure to let me know if you guys try these! I’d love to see pictures of you and your kiddos enjoying them!
