Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

Author Jenna Luchau


  • 1 1/4 cups canned chickpeas well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel (little less than 1 can)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt if your almond butter doesn't have salt in it
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until well combined and very smooth.
  2. Stir in the chocolate chips. If it's easier, transfer the mixture to a bowl first. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  3. With wet hands, form into 1-1/2" balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. (the cookies will not rise much)
  4. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. The dough balls will still be very soft when you take them out of the oven. They will not set like normal cookies.
