Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to recipe

Grain-free, gluten-free, and vegan, these chickpea chocolate chip cookies are out of this world.  Pillowy soft, fluffy, sweet, melt in your mouth, chunky chocolate chip cookies. 
Recently, my cousin Priya sent me a video of a single serving skillet chocolate chip made from chickpeas.  I was definitely excited about the idea of using chickpeas to make the cookies.  I just wasn’t sure how they could turn out without using flour but this is the magic of science!

Here are a few notes I’ve learned along the way:

  • Make this in a food processor.  A blender will not yield the same results, even if it is a high powered blender.
  • Any nut butter will work as long as you use the 1:1 ratio.  If you have a nut allergy, sunbutter is a great alternative for this.
  • Make sure you use some of the oils in the nut butter when you scoop it out.  Because there is no added oils to this recipe, a little help from the nut butters helps soften up the cookies a bit.
  • When the cookies come out of the oven, they will be a bit gooey and soft.  As they cool down, they will firm up.
  • I’ve made these without the chocolate chips and they taste just as divine.
