Smart for Life has originated a way to utilize natural ingredients into delicious cookies that are not only nutritious but cruelty-free and gluten-free. Smart for Life strives to create healthy and delicious alternatives to the treats everyone remembers growing up with, cookies!
One of the signature “secret” ingredients to create our perfect Vegan Cookies includes chickpea flour. Chickpea flour or garbanzo flour, has been a staple in Indian cuisine for centuries, however, many overlook the benefits Chickpea flour can offer.
The chickpea is a versatile legume, hinting a mild and nutty flavor, perfectly suited for baking. Chickpea flour is rich in the vitamins and minerals that traditional flours commonly lack.
Chickpea flour contains an antioxidant called polyphenols that fights unstable molecules or “free radicals” within the body that are thought to contribute to the development of various diseases. Polyphenols are micro nutrients that we get through plants which have specifically shown to reserve the damages free radicals can cause within the body.
Additionally, chickpea flour contains about 25% fewer calories than that of refined wheat flour, making it an excellent alternative to traditional flours when reducing one’s caloric intake. Research has discovered that the high levels of the natural hormone, ghrelin, found in chickpea flour can aid in decreasing overall hunger.
Chickpea flour has a low glycemic index, making it able to lower the risks of diabetes. Smart for Life cookies are high in both soluble and insoluble fibers that improve blood fat levels.
Smart for Life cookies range from 80 to 110 calories that are both filling & delicious additions to one’s healthy lifestyle. Smart cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and are made of non-GMO ingredients, ensuring that even those with specific dietary restrictions can still enjoy cookies on a daily basis.
