Green Pea Sweet and Salty Cookies Recipe

Green Pea Sweet and Salty Cookies Recipe

These green pea cookies are a mixture of salty and sweet tastes. They are healthy, cheap and take very little work. If you are a fan of our salty treats like salted caramel avocado mousse or salted caramel snickers then you should give these a go.

We are always told to eat more green vegetables and what can be a more delicious way than in cookies! Use gluten-free oats to make these gluten-free.

Suitable for wheat free, dairy-free, vegan, oil-free and refined sugar-free diets.

They do sadly lose much of the vibrant green colour after baking.

Frozen peas work great for this, just leave them out of the freezer to defrost or in warm water. It would probably work fine with fresh peas but might take a few mins more to bake golden.

If you don’t have a food processor you can just blend the peas and bananas together in a liquidiser and stir in the oats and salt.

I use petit pois to make these as they are sweeter and softer than normal peas but it works fine with normal peas. You might want to experiment as different peas and oats will make different cookies.

I prefer to grind rolled oats to make these but some find quick/ready oats better as they give a softer cookie.

If you want to give these cookies a green superfood boost then try adding spirulina, wheatgrass powder or any other green powder that you fancy. Just a small amount will not really affect the taste but will give them a nutritional boost.

This is a great recipe to use bananas that are really ripe and falling to pieces as they will be sweet and soft.

  1. Hello, I like all your recipes and this one especially. But now I need to change oats with something gluten free. Would you offer me anything? Thank you advanced!

    1. Hello, thanks for your kind words. If gluten free oats don’t work for you how about trying buckwheat or coconut? Do let me know how it goes

      1. Hello, I did a few versions, with: coconut flour, buckwheat flour (natural, green), rice flakes and rice flakes + buckwheat flour. The best was the fourth version with 1 cup rice flakes + 1/2 cup buckwheat flour.The cookies with coconut flour was disintegrating, and they were not tasty. Best Regards

        1. Great thanks so much for sharing! I had not heard of rice flakes until you mentioned it, sounds like a great gluten-free ingredient

          1. I had not heard of rice flakes before too. I accidentally saw them in a supermarket (in UK). They are from white rice, but it is OK.

          2. Oh excellent I should be able to get some. Were they marketed as a porridge or an ingredient in their own right? Just seen them as a porridge but £5 a kilo so a bit pricey!
