What are chickpea cookies?

Well, Chickpea cookies are exactly what they sound like… A cookie that is made from chickpeas! I know what you’re thinking, Hannah- that’s really weird. But I promise you, don’t knock it until you try it. These cookies have a very similar taste to the Chew Chips Ahoy. But these are so much better.

These chickpea cookies are perfectly sweet, soft and incredibly delicious. They are made with only six simple ingredients- all of which i’m sure most of us have in our pantry right now!

Ingredients include: Chickpeas, maple syrup, nut butter, vanilla, baking powder and chocolate chips!

What you will need to make chickpea cookies

You will need a food processor or blender to make these cookies. The goal is to blend the chickpeas really well so that a batter starts to form. A food processor is the best tool to do this.

How to make flourless chickpea cookies

These cookies are so simple to make. All you need to do is add the ingredients to your food processor and let it blend for a few minutes. Then, add in the chocolate chips. The batter will resemble a cookie dough batter-however it’s completely edible, so feel free to take a bite!

Once you have your batter, add to a baking sheet that is either lined with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat and bake for 10-12 minutes!

Tips and tricks!

To achieve that picture perfect cookie here are a few tips and tricks that I’ve learned throughout the years.

  1. Add extra chocolate chips on top before baking! This is a little time consuming if you stand them all up, but it will be worth it in the end. (picture above)
  2. Flakey sea salt! If you are a sweet and salty kind of gal like myself- flakey sea salt not only adds a great balancing flavor, but it also gives the cookie that extra glow.
  3. Use a cookie scoop! Using a cookie scoop allows for each cookie to come out the same size. Plus- it’s so easy to scoop and plop directly on the baking sheet!
