Prep Time: 10 minutes            Cook Time: 0 minutes          Yield: 12 servings      


  • 1 15-oz. can reduced-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips 
  • 3 tbsp. quick oats


  1. Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to a food processor and process until very smooth. Depending upon your food processor, this may take several minutes and several scrape-downs.
  2. Taste the “dough.” If you’d like it sweeter, add additional maple syrup 1 teaspoon at a time until it is as sweet as you like. If the dough is too wet, add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of oats to get the desired dough consistency. 
  3. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl and fold in the chocolate chips (you also can attempt to mix them directly in the food processor bowl, but I find using a separate bowl is easier and more effective in the end).
  4. Enjoy immediately or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Cover the chickpea cookie dough, and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • For ease, I suggest storing it in multiple small freezer-safe storage containers. Then, you can thaw them one at a time as needed. You can store the cookie dough in the freezer for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then give it a good stir before serving.
