These chickpea chocolate chip cookies are gluten free, seriously chocolatey, and have just the right amount of sweetness. You won’t see loads of sugar and they don’t even taste like they were made with chickpeas. How frickin’ awesome is that?!

Wanting to make some chocolate chip cookies without flour or fancy ingredients? Yes yes yes! I’m always looking to make recipes with a healthy and relatively cheap main ingredient like oats or in today’s recipe, chickpeas.

You can still enjoy the melty chocolate chip cookies that you grew up enjoying as a kid. And they are super simple to make just grab a food processor or blender and add the ingredients in. Then fold in the chocolate and shape into cookies.

You will have warm gooey chocolate chip chickpea cookies in your hands in no time. Just don’t tell anyone they have chickpeas in them until after their first bite and just watch their reaction. They will be super surprised!

Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients

HOW TO MAKE CHICKPEA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Preheat the oven to 350 F / 175 C. In a food processor or blender, mix all the ingredients except the chocolate. You may need to use a spatula and scrape down the sides and pulse again until the chickpea dough is well combined.

To a mixing bowl, gently fold in the chocolate chips. I love to use half of a chopped chocolate bar. I select a good quality chocolate bar that is higher in cacao instead of sugar. The chopped chocolate enhances the flavor of the cookies and gives you the melty chocolate chip cookies you would see in a bakery. Note that I’ve made these with chocolate chips and chocolate chips and both are excellent choices.

The chickpea chocolate chip cookie dough mixture can be sticky. You may need to place a little water on your hands or coconut oil. Then form into cookies. This recipe makes about 10 chickpea chocolate chip cookies.

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. I love soft chocolatey cookies, so bake to your preference.

I recommend using a natural peanut butter as it helps create an ideal chickpea chocolate chip cookie dough.

    YAY!! Love this new recipe. I took your advice and didn’t tell my roommates they had chickpeas in them. They took a bite and asked what was in the recipe. They were surprised that the cookies were made with chickpeas. You can’t even taste them. I’m hooked on these and your recipes!

    I LOVE these cookies. For starters…you can not worry about eating the dough raw as there are no eggs (I had to lick the spoon!)
    I wanted to make my go-to’s (the delicious brownies + pb energy balls via A Kind Spoon) however…I was out of a few ingredients for those. This was a perfect time for me to try these cookies as I had all of the ingredients on hand (and I needed to branch out!). These may be my favorite treat I’ve made in a while! They are soooo satisfying and flavorful and I LOVE that the base is chick peas…who know? A Kind Spoon did.
