    I am not sure how you would use them in a cake if they are not ground down as a substitute for flour? Not sure a cake would hold together with them in their full form.

    I think it would possibly still apply to the misuse of free food, as it is not part of a filling meal, so I am not sure. If you can eat it and still lose weight, then I wouldnt worry too much, but if you find the weight is not ocming off, then you may need to reassess.

    I think you need to ask whether you would have ever considered using chickpeas to make a cake prior to SW. Of course you wouldn't have therefore you are using them in a way that is not normal usage and that to my mind makes it 'food abuse'.
