Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies
What are chickpea cookies?
Well, Chickpea Chocolate Chip 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 Chewy 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! Be sure to tag me over on Instagram or Tiktok if you make these.
Ingredients to make these 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.
- 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)
- 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.
- 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!
so yummy 😋
Does anyone know the nutritional value of these cookies?
Hi Hattie, you can plug the ingredients into a calculator on google and it will tell you.
If I don’t have a food processor, can I use a blender or mixer? I’m excited to try these!!
Hi Katrina! Yes, you can most definitely use a blender or hand mixer. As long as the chickpeas are blended, it will taste just fine! You may need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times during the process.
