Chickpea flour is highly prized in some cultures. You can also use cooked (boiled) chickpeas, which are high in nutritional value and high in protein. This is a great and delicious way to eat chickpeas.
People with lactose intolerance try not to eat milk, many others also do not abuse dairy products due to their high cholesterol content, because it increases mucus in the lungs, leads to skin problems and allergies.
This healthy biscuit recipe is free of milk, yogurt, and butter, so it can be eaten every day for easy digestion and health benefits.
White sugar is not recommended to be consumed at all. Numerous studies show that it is a poison that demineralizes and acidifies our body and, if we eat too much of it, our health deteriorates.
In this recipe, we’re replacing sugar with a natural stevia-based sweetener, but you can also use honey or agave syrup for healthier alternatives.
