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.

Took these 2 for a walk over to Hillhurst this am & ran into 3 different friends & talked passionately about Game Of Thrones with each of them. IT WAS A GREAT MORNING. 💥💥💥#gameofthrones
Fabulous (albeit loud) 16th Anniversary dinner @Redbird tonight. Fire alarm went off for what seemed like an eternity- but food, wine & service was 💯 % incredible. Special thanks to special friends for the gift certificate. Best gift ever. Best partner ever. Also, no real 🔥. Phew.

Posted @withrepost • @boycestudio Lexx loved all other dogs.  When he met a small dog, he would gently boop them on the head in greeting. He was the sweetest boy ever. Lexx’s human is getting the Speckled Maple medium Planturn to keep him close.

Pretty sure he’s thinking about donuts.
Superfans at @ifyoucantwell ‘s book signing last night. Check out his super moving, super brilliant graphic novel ‘She Could Fly’ and see why we are so so proud proud of our fond friend. Also, not sure what I’m doing in Photo 3, but it might involve throwin’ shade at fellow Superfans, or showing off my new shirt, which i am also (clearly) proud of. #shecouldfly #graphicnovel
Pico is all about the #hygge .
My clients’ child has moved into the Guest Room ottoman, so I guess I’m doing something right?
