Try making these delicious – and healthy! – cookies. Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) are an excellent source of fiber, protein, and iron. This recipe uses a whole can! Not only are these cookies packed with good stuff, but they’re also gluten and egg-free! In the spirit of the season, we added pumpkin peanut butter, but you can just use regular peanut butter, too.

Healthy Chickpea Cookies


  • 8oz can Chickpeas
  • 5/8 cup Peanut Butter (the fewer ingredients the better)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt of your PB doesn’t have any
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (optional )

Chickpea Cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Rinse beans and pat them dry
  • Grind all ingredients except the chocolate chips and nuts in a food processor.
  • Be sure to scrape the sides and get it very smooth and creamy.
  • Mix in chocolate chips
  • With wet hands, roll into 2 inch balls and then smush flat. Cookies will not spread or settle so however you put them in the oven is exactly how they’ll come out.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes
  • Let cook and enjoy!
