It has been a while since I started the eczema. I do have to say it is pretty tough especially when food is so good. I still have to learn to say no! Lately I have been craving sweets. I have a major sweet tooth and thought that it had something to do with Candida yeast. Maybe, maybe not. I wouldn’t say my eczema has improved a lot. I have been more conscious about what I am eating. I am trying to make healthier choices. Recently I searched for a recipe that I could have that was gluten free. Found this awesome chickpea cookie recipe. Be warned that it is a really soft cookie so don’t just throw it into a bag. It will become mush!
Start by soaking chickpeas overnight. This removes some of the phytic acid. Rinse well before cooking. Cook until the chickpeas are soft, and blend in a food processor.
Add vanilla and maple syrup.
I decided to combine cashew butter and almond butter. You probably could make your own, but this time I was lazy.
Add baking powder and chocolate chips (omit the chocolate chips if you don’t want any added sugar) I made a few without chocolate chips.
Use a scoop to portion out the dough. Bake until golden brown. This takes about 15 minutes depending on how big the cookies are.
The cookies will be soft until they cool. They are very tender and moist, almost cake like.
