At least three months have passed since I bought chickpea flour in order to make some cookies, but the poor stayed forgotten in the pantry. I admit, in most of the cases it is easier to cook with ingredients that have been already tested, because you know how they behave and what you can do with them. When trying a new type of flour you should experiment with different amounts of liquid, because there can be major differences from one type to another.
Because I loooove cookies and always try to make new tasty and healthy options, I decided to sacrifice my flour for the sake of art. Fortunately, this time it didn’t meet my trash basket, and I started to feel more confident. I hate to throw away my failed attempts because the idea of wasting resources seems outrageous to me. Believe me, sometimes I eat things that nobody else would, because I hate throwing away food. You would be surprised to see how weird a dessert can be or to end up with some muffins that after an hour of baking are too moist to be eaten.
Frankly, even if what I try to do sometimes exceeds my capabilities, the satisfaction is overwhelming when I succeed to create something really good. I throw away so that you wouldn’t, because in this way we waste less.
I would say that these cookies were a success but I can’t wait to hear your opinion. There cookies are crumbly, filling and flavourful and I would gladly make them again and again. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make them and only one cookie will calm down your sugar cravings.
