Any recipes for such a thing? Or ideas that I can experiment with?<br><br>
I found this recipe for <a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Chocolate-Chip-Cookies-With-Chickpeas-271179" target="_blank">chickpea cookies</a>, and really like them.<br>
Evidently, some people think they taste like chickpeas, but perhaps they used a mixer. I have to use a food processor for things these days (ds2 cries when I use the mixer, but squeels with delight when I use the food processor), so the chickpeas were well blended up, and none of us could taste them at all. Even dp the bean-hater liked the cookies. lol<br><br>
But since I'm on an ED, I've been eating a lot of them, and all the sugar is making me feel icky. I was thinking it would be nice to have something with the protein of the chickpeas, but less sugar. I was thinking bread like, similar to banana bread, but I'm open to just about anything.<br><br>
If I don't find any ideas, I think I'll try making banana bread and subbing chickpeas for bananas. Oh, bananas are out as an ingredient. The only acceptable fruit/veggie ingredients are pears and apples. (and celery and green beans, but I'm thinking those wouldn't work well in muffins <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

Why not use maple syrup and less of it?<br><br>
The recipe sounds good. So are you looking for more ways to get in protein or sweet allergy free recipes?<br><br>
What foods can you have on this diet? Can you have nuts? Many people use almond flour.

You could also try turning it into applesauce bread, with some spices?

I'm mostly looking for something yummy that will make me happy- doesn't even have to be sweet, really. Just a quick tasty snack.<br>
Spices are out, as are most fruit (I'm fairly certain ds2 is sensitive to sals <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> )<br><br>
I did combine a couple recipes last night and came up with something decent. It's the same basic cookie recipe, but with 1/3c sugar, 1/3c butter, and 1.5 c chopped apples. They came out just slightly sweet, but still good in a muffin/dinner roll type way.<br><br>
Now if there's a way to make them gf, that would be awesome! I want ds1 to eliminate gluten for a while, so almond flour would work for him. Oh!! That oatmeal recipe would work too- ds1 is fine with spices. I bet I could come up with something really good for him!<br><br>
Thanks!!

Are you avoiding dairy? How is the rash going?<br><br>
Just some thought as we have dealt with persistent rashes. Rashes on the diaper area are big allergies and those foods should be avoided. Rashes on the body for my kids are nutrient deficiencies and are triggered by foods/chemicals. Dairy also causes rashes for my dd, eczema rashes. That could never be made alright by adding in nutrients, so we just avoid dairy.<br><br>
Gluten never made a difference in rashes for some reason, but we feel better without it.<br><br>
These are just some thoughts that helped us to not have to avoid so many foods but still get rid of rashes.<br><br>
Yeah this is allergy stuff, but I think the Mods will let it pass.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I should be. dang. crud. yeah, I was really hoping that my "trial" of dairy was accurate, and it was safe, but now I'm not so sure. Same with gluten/wheat.<br><br>
So now if I could just make these cookies gfdf, no fruit, and no spices I'd be all set. Yum <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"> hehehe<br><br>
Interesting about the different rashes you guys have. That does give me some food for thought (hardy har). No, but really, it could possibly shed some light on what's happening here.
