Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies
Health coach and allergy-friendly cook Sharon Selby shares these delicious treats to ensure kids are getting enough calcium on a dairy-free diet.
These nutritious cookies (also known as calcium cookies) are naturally sweet and chewy. Thanks to the chickpeas and tahini they are packed with vital bone-healthy minerals including calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium – all needed for strong growing bones.
