Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s time I share with you, these delicious cookies I made. The best thing about these cookies are they are rather healthy. You will not believe what they are made with. No eggs, no oil, no butter, and no flour. Seriously. Can it get any worst better than that? Maybe. These cookies are made with Chickpeas! Seriously.

Are you a cookie dough eater? I’m not because my daddy always warned us about eating raw eggs. I thought I’d die if did. But again, this dough has no eggs or any dairy product for that matter so if cookie dough is your thing, grab a bowl and dig in. 

They are Gluten free, low sugar and grain free. They can even be made vegan if you change up the recipe a bit such as using vegan chocolate chips or maple syrup instead of honey. In fact, the original recipe is vegan. But hey, I’m not vegan and I didn’t have maple syrup so I’m sticking with this recipe. 

Don’t snarl your nose up until you have tired it. They are absolutely delicious. You can not taste the chickpeas at all and if you didn’t know it, you would never guess it’s in them. These cookies are also full of protein. Now I don’t feel guilty when I eat ten four. 

Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Can chickpeas (rinse and drain)
1/2 Cup peanut butter
1/3 Cup Honey
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 Cup chocolate chips.(or more).

Put all ingredients except chocolate chips into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased or lined cookie sheet. (They do not rise or spread but do fluff some)
Bake on 350 for 20 minutes.

These cookies come out firm on the bottom and soft and gooey throughout. 
I plan to make more of these to share with family as they taste as good as any other homemade chocolate chip cookies.

  1. I'm going to make these for my friend and can't eat my regular chocolate chippers.
    I have eaten cookie dough my whole life. : )

  2. I'm a dough eater, but I started young and have built up an immunity. LOL.

    I'm skeptical, but like you say, don't knock it til you try it. I'll have to test these out!

  3. These cookies look and sound so good and healthy. Thanks for the recipe to make them Lisa.

  6. I've just come over from HappyOne's blog after reading about these cookies made with chickpeas. They look yummy and since I have all of the ingredients on hand I am trying them tomorrow. Thanks for sharing your recipe. By the way, I notice that you are from NC too.
