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.

Sydney will NOT be outdone by her big brother. Plus, she has better legs.
A lot of (rude) people ask if Pico has had a bunch of cosmetic surgery to be this unbelievably handsome. Nope. He’s just #blessed.
One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Copenhagen was splurging on a private nighttime boat tour with @heycaptaincph 💥 Our Captain, Kaj, was incredibly charming, knowledgeable & passionate about the city. Plus, we didn’t sink.
Date night at the outstanding Otium. Besides food that is pretty much perfection, they currently have drinks such as The Marvelous Mrs Basil (my fave) and The Little Sebastian - named after, of course, Little Sebastian from Parks & Rec. 👌& 😂 & 💯 #themarvelousmrsmaisel #marvelousmrsmaisel #lilsebastian #treatyoself #parksandrec #LAfoodporn #bestofLA
The shopping in Copenhagen is epic. And everyone wears sneakers all the time & with everything. They’re my spirit animals. 😍
These guys appear to have all their ducks in a row. (Sorry.)

Today was a big day for me because I graduated from my Oncologist. Five years ago this month I had surgery to remove melanoma on my leg & I’ve been visiting him every 4 months since then for check-ups & chest x-rays to make sure I’m all clear. Today I “graduated “ from these visits because I am 5 years cancer free. Feeling pretty hashtag blessed & grateful on this epic day ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Btw, WEAR SUNSCREEN.
House(boat) envy.
More mad Danish style 💥
Copenhagen gets me. #dogsrule
I’ve seen some stellar restaurant design in my time, but I’ve gotta say that this place takes the cake. Er.... smorrebrod. I was told by a proud employee that its design is based on a church, as a place to worship food. It’s warm and beautiful and inviting and super special. I’m not exaggerating when I say it was an honor to experience this place first hand. Thank you, #somebodyfeedphil , for the hot tip. 🔥 🔥🔥
Just confirming for y’all that Copenhagen lives up to its rep as a gastro powerhouse. Aamanns makes their own schnapps (called Snaps here) and it is fabulous ... check out all the different concoctions brewing 💥💥💥
