Ayurveda Cookies Choc & Chili – Our chickpea cookies with cocoa and chili

For more than 25 years, we have offered AMLA Laddus – an Indian sweet made from chickpea flour, ghee, and sugar. In warm weather, the product melts and cannot be shipped during the summer. Therefore, we sought an alternative for this very popular product and now offer you very tasty and healthy cookies that have almost the same recipe as Laddus – however, they are baked at the end of the production process.

If one follows the phrasing of today’s marketing trends, one could call roasted chickpea flour a “Superfood”. This term is often used to describe foods that are distinguished by particularly high nutritional values from ordinary foods.

Unlike such trend products, which are often conceived in marketing departments and spread on social media, roasted chickpea flour is an ancient food that is used as a healthy staple in many cultures around the world.

Scientific data confirm the uniqueness of this food.

Chickpeas are a high-quality food that contains many healthy nutrients: They are rich in protein, fat, vitamins, and fiber. They must always be cooked before consumption.

In 100 grams of dried chickpeas, besides the nutrients, there are 15.5 grams of fiber. That’s half the amount we should consume daily. Fibers swell, satiate, keep blood sugar levels low, and serve as food for our gut flora. Fibers lower cholesterol levels and thus protect the blood vessels.

The European Food Safety Authority has defined the amounts of vitamins and minerals that an average healthy adult should consume daily to meet their needs – the so-called NRV values.

NRV values for chickpeas – Chickpeas contain:

  • 352% of the NRV value for Vitamin K – important for cooking and blood clotting
  • 38% of the NRV value for Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) – important for hormones, blood clotting, immune system
  • 170% of the NRV value for Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) – important for cell tissue in pregnancy, psyche, blood formation
  • as well as high values of Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc, and Iron

Due to the content of protein and fiber, cravings can be avoided. Chickpeas are considered in Ayurveda as a means to manage body weight (not scientifically proven).
