Garbanzo Bean Cookies

Garbanzo Bean Cookies

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp almond butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup carob chips

Blend (in blender or food processor) all ingredients, except chips and oats. Stir in oats and chips. If too runny, add some more oats (I think I added another 1/4 cup). Drop heaping tbsp onto parchment lined baking sheet. Smash down a little with spoon or spatula. Bake at 300 degrees for about 15 min.
I am going to try them with cinnamon and raisins (instead of the carob chips) too!

Lime and Avocado Chicken Sandwich

This is healthy and super fast to make.  I LOVE anything with lime, cilantro, and avocados. 

1 can of shredded chicken
Cilantro- chop abut 1/4 of a cup
Red Onion - chopped about 1/4 a cup
Salt and Pepper - to taste
Lime Juice - about 1-3 tablespoons
Thin hamburger buns or whole wheat pita bread. 

I just mix everything together until I like the taste.  Then I put it on a bun or in a pita with sliced avocado.  You could also serve it on top of a salad if you are trying to get in more veggies.
