Chickpea Baby and Toddler Cookies

These “cookies” were a hit.  If you have seen some of my other recipes, you know I love the concept of cookies, but I make them my own (typically packed with nutrition, check out my monster cookies, one of my toddler’s favorites!)  My youngest was recently diagnosed with an egg allergy, so I wanted to make something both girls could eat and enjoy, as a breakfast or a snack.  These are packed with nutrients, not too sweet, and perfect for baby and toddler hands!
