Everything You Think You Know About Chick(pea)s Is Wrong.

These cookies are so good, they might cause you to question everything you know about baking, flour, Veganism, and possibly life itself.

Even YOU wouldn’t be able to tell these cookies are mostly comprised of garbanzo beans. They would even fool my dad, who has a sixth sense about being bullshitted into eating anything too healthy.

My Dad. Major bullshit detecter.

I started writing this post before I even ate one. The raw dough alone is reason enough to make you want to quit your job and go live under the porch of Cafe Gratitude

Cafe Gratitude in LA.

Here’s the recipe. I substituted real chocolate chips with Sunspire Vegan Carob Chips so my lactose intolerant husband could eat some and I wouldn’t get too fat. But I am 100% certain that they’d be better with real chocolate chips because WHO ARE WE KIDDING?

I got them at Whole Foods, a place that white people like me REALLY like.

I cannot say enough about the Eating Whole blog. It’s spectacular. And so inspiring. Special thanks to Rachel Thurston for bringing it to my attention. Rachel is equally spectacular and inspiring. Check out her mad photography and writing skills and be prepared to be moved deeply. But try not to make her talent make you feel too badly about yourself. Sometimes I cry myself to sleep with jealousy.

I use these cool tissues.

But back to the cookies. Actually, the raw cookie dough is better than the finished product. And I am not even a huge fan of raw cookie dough. Kinda like how I feel about The West Wing, I can take it or leave it. Mostly leave it. 

When you bite into one, they’ll make you channel your Inner Clay Davis.

I’m not saying they will make you forget ‘real’ chocolate chip cookies forever…but these have protein, people! And are gluten free and (can be easily made) vegan.

If you need any more inspiration to try this recipe, check out the feelings of longing they inspired in Pico. 

"It's so not fair that I can't have any fucking cookies."

“It’s so not fair that I can’t have any fucking cookies.”

That should be enough to get you to embrace the chickpea.

I dropped by the rescue where we adopted Sydney to pay homage to their spaymobile which features our girl on the far left! 💥💥💥💥 So proud of our little supermodel & eternally grateful to @amandafoundation for uniting us. ❤️
Twinning in PS.
Nothing says”you’re old” like a section of a cocktail menu entitled “Dark Ages” chock full of all the drinks that made you puke back in the day 💥💥💥 #oldschool #palmspringslife #palmspringsliving
Good God I love this place! I might have to go back & grab these @haydesign glass straws because they are beyond. 😍
Note to self: be more cool, like these guys 👌 #palmsprings # palmspringslife #palmspringsstyle
Hi from Palm Springs, bitches. 😎🌵👋 #holidayhouse #holidayhousepalmsprings #palmspringslife
Well played, Rolling Greens. Your employees may refuse to even make eye contact, but your stuff is ⭐️.
My newest client review on @Houzz! This means you should definitely hire me. Yes, I’m talking to YOU. (Big thanks to @janshegda !)
What to do with the little mezzanine above our front door has eluded me for years. When all else fails, go for plants! .... Or, maybe start there?
Their relationship is complicated.

You guys, I have finally found a show to fill the Catastrophe - shaped hole in my heart. This Way Up on @hulu. Watch it now. Hilarious and moving AF, and featuring a character that I want to be BFF’s with more than I did Tami Taylor. Apologies to @conniebritton , to whom this news would be devastating. @sharonhorgan kills it, per usual. And @weemissbea is the best thing that has happened to tv since, well, Sharon Horgan. Should I be paid for this glowing recommendation? Maybe, but it’ll have to be enough for you all to tell me how right I am. And I am sooooo right. #thiswayup
Saturday vibes. Gorgeous & unique tree is (natch) from @pottedstore. And so is the pot, for that matter. Pup is straight from heaven.
YOU GUYS I NEED MORE DOORS. This #vintagehardware is causing my heart rate to go up. Always a pleasure to visit Liz’s and swoon.
Male model for hire. Hourly is negotiable, form of payment preferred: people food of any kind.
Restaurant design done right... right??? 💯 & 👌 & 😍
I fear that Pico is the only being who truly ‘gets’ my obsession with the Madagascar Elephant Tree.
Hey, Malibu, we should visit more often.
