The Original Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (aka Chickpea Cookies)


Chickpea cookies! Chickpea cookies with no flour, no oil, no white sugar. These are just full of chickpeas. And they’re my very favorite healthy cookie so far!* I don’t know if they really classify as cookies so I’ll go with cookie dough bites.

And as a bonus, they’re grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. Just in case that matters to anyone out there! And if you’re worried about the chickpeas, don’t be. I don’t like chickpeas and won’t eat them but that didn’t prevent me from inhaling these.

Yield: 14 1" cookies

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups canned chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel1
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter, SunButter Natural or almond butter - room temperature2
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave or maple syrup for vegan)
1 teaspoon baking powder3
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips (use vegan and dairy-free chocolate chips, if needed)

Notes

  • My can of chickpeas was 400 grams, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons.
  • Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter. 
  • If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they're combined.
  2. 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.
