Did you know you can make amazing cookies with CHICKPEAS?

According to WebMD, chickpeas are high in dietary fiber and a source of a number of nutrients, including calcium, choline, iron, folate, phosphorus and more. This nutritious and delicious pulse may even help lower your cholesterol and improve your mental health  (source). 

I love them as a source of plant-based protein and often mix them in salads and other dishes. When I discovered they can be used to make very tasty cookies and cookie dough, I was blown away!

This recipe here can be used to make either chickpea cookie dough or divine chickpea chocolate chip cookies.  They’re perfect for a healthy snack any time of the day.

These chocolate chickpea cookies are so easy to make and so good 😋


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and shaken so they’re not too wet
  • 1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter (any nut butter will do)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate (you can of course use milk chocolate if that’s your thing)


  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor except for the chocolate.
  2. Add the chocolate chips/chopped chocolate and blend it into the dough with a spatula or wooden spoon.
  3. Roll into balls (or use a spoon/ice cream scoop) and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 170 C / 340 F for ~15 minutes.

Cool and enjoy … I love this super easy to make high protein, high fiber treat 💪🏼💪🏼

I would double this recipe if you have a food processor that’s large enough.
