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

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.

Happy Valentines Day to the love of my life, who today declared me “the prettiest girl in the house”. Let it be known that my only competitor is the chick in the middle. And we all know that she’s the winner. 📸 : @ashbudd

Sure they look all cute & innocent here. But these 2 have been mysteriously bro-ing out a lot lately & I’m convinced they’re plotting against me.
I can’t really wrap my head around the beauty that is Los Angeles in January after a big rain.

Anyone else take the Instagram survey & totally unleash on how shitty IG has become since Facebook took over? That felt really good. 💪🏽 But... how I miss the old IG. 😕
Sydney, untrusting.
Because my fans demanded it (they didn’t, plus I don’t really have a fan base I’m aware of), here are photos of New Years Day 2019 Pico Maigret. Yes, he’s definitely looking into your souls & he’s not sure he likes what he sees. His words, not mine. 🤷🏼‍♀️
