Vegan Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookies (Kosher-for-Passover)
Introducing: the ultimate Passover cookie. During Passover, it feels nice to enjoy nourishing homemade treats that are good for us. I’ve adapted a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe to use all plant-based, healthy ingredients that are Kosher for Passover. If you eat Kitniyot, no-one – from your kids to your husband to your mother and mother-in-law – will be able to keep their hands off these.
Chocolate Chip cookies are an American Classic snack with zero health benefits. This recipe offers a version which hits the taste points without leaving us feeling sluggish.
These cookies are Pesach friendly* and you can make them with either white beans or sweet potatoes (trust me on this) depending on your dietary preference. Sweet potatoes might sound like a pretty out-there cookie ingredient, but nobody blinks at potato starch, right? The bonus is that sweet potatoes are naturally caramel-flavoured and intensely sweet. Best of all, sweet potatoes are absolutely full of natural fibre, which is exactly what our digestion is calling out for during this time.
To make a gluten-free version of this recipe, swap out the matzo meal for almond flour or gluten-free matzo meal. I prefer using the almond flour because I think too much matzo leaves most of us constipated (we can discuss another day).
The holidays are a special time, and also a busy time. So many times, I find myself so busy preparing food and getting ready to welcome guests. Oftentimes, I have felt disappointed with how our holiday table looks. This is what inspired me to work with a graphic designer to create these two Passover products from the Jewish Food Hero.
