Vegan Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, people. These chickpea cookies are seriously to die for. I have literally eaten like 6 of these in one sitting (oops).

These cookies are soft, moist, packed with protein, and naturally gluten-free and vegan! The main ingredient in these babies are chickpeas, so there is no need for any flour or eggs, yet still taste like a real chocolate chip cookie!

As if this dessert couldn’t get any better… making the dough is extremely easy and only requires a small blender!

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  5. On a baking sheet, scoop out 1 inch-sized pieces of dough and roll into a ball, then lightly flatten with your finger or a fork
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes

Notes

If dough seems too thin, pop them into the freezer for 15-20 minutes before scooping onto the baking sheet

You can use smooth almond butter in place of peanut butter, but it may yield a darker colored cookie

After baking, the cookies will appear to be pretty doughy still. This is normal. Let them cool and then store in the refrigerator.
