Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's an easy, healthy chickpea cookie recipe full of plant-based protein and without flour or sugar!

 I have to admit that I wasn’t too keen on making these cookies when I first saw the recipe on this websiteHow is it at all possible for chickpeas to be appetizing in a cookie?   

I then began loving the possibility of finding another tasty, healthy cookie that contained no flour or sugar. And after reading so many positive comments about how good the cookies are, I decided to give them a try. 

I have to say that I was surprised when I tasted the cookie! I could not taste the chickpeas at all. I found them delightfully good.  There’s no guilt when eating these!  

I have a few quick tips: 

  1. These ARE healthy cookies. Don’t expect them to taste like the ones your mom bakes on Christmas morning. 😉 If you want to eat sweets that are good for you, this is one great way to do that.
  2. Using a food processor to blend these is essential! It’s possible that a really high speed blender would work. The cookies taste much better when the ingredients are thoroughly blended without a chunk of chickpea anywhere. This is the food processor that I use.
  3. Make these without telling your kids that they have a ton of chickpeas in them. That can kind of mess with their mind and affect their taste buds. 😉

    This is great I can’t wait to make these! I just made some blackbean cookies the other day and added chocolate chips then sprinkled them with cacao nibs on top before baking.
