I had no clue that cookies made out of green peas could taste so good. I wanted to make a simple and quick dessert and my whole focus was my daughter. She loves cookies so much that sometimes her day starts with cookies. Hmmm. Enter these green pea, calcium-rich tofu, and protein-packed almond flour cookies. Nutritious and delicious food to the rescue!

Green Protein Cookies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]





Cook Time



  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1/2 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup silken tofu, mashed
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 15 raw almonds


  1. Preheat oven at 350°F and prepare a cookie sheet with a liner.
  2. In a food processor/grinder combine peas and dates and grind as smooth as possible.
  3. In a mixing bowl, spoon the peas mix and add tofu and mix well with a spoon.
  4. Then add almond flour, salt, and baking powder and mix well with your hand.
  5. Very soft dough like texture will be formed.
  6. Take a tablespoonful of the dough between palms and form a round shape and gently flatten in the middle. Try to even out the flat round cookies as much as possible.
  7. Put the cookies on the cookie sheet and garnish with raw almonds. (one almond on each cookie and press very gently so they stick together).
  8. Put the cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until slightly brown in color.
  9. Take it out of the oven and let the cookies cool down for a while and serve.

Are you using dried peas? Fresh peas? Frozen thawed out peas?? I want to try this recipe, but need some more clarification. Thanks!
