  • 1¼ cups canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, or almond butter - room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey or agave
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
  • ½ cup (90 grams) chocolate chips (use vegan and dairy-free chocolate chips, if needed)



Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they're combined.


Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.


With wet hands, form into 1½" balls. Place onto a Silpat or a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don't do much rising.


Bake for about 10 minutes. The dough balls will still be very soft when you take them out of the oven. They will not set like normal cookies.


Someone sent this to me in an email and then posted it on my FB page. I had to give them a try and they are well worth it. I believe you can find the original owner here if you want to give them a shout out!
