Chewy chickpea cookies

I’m loving these high protein gluten-free cookies. They’re super easy to make, great for the lunch box and perfect for a mid morning cuppa. Warning: eating only one is a little tricky.

Sugar-free sweet potato brownie

Hail to Deliciously Ella for the idea of putting kumara (sweet potato) into a brownie recipe. The satisfying starch works beautifully to fill up hungry children.
