Chickpea Chocolate Cookies

Many ladies with Prediabetes tell me they'd give anything if they could just eat a cookie now and then. Good news! You can! My healthy, yummy and easy-to-make Chickpea Chocolate Cookies are in the oven and baking up, all tasty for you to eat!


Did you know you can make cookies out of chickpeas?

You can! And they taste wonderful.

And all of our gluten free ladies don’t need to worry...there is NO wheat in these cookies.

Instead I've added chia meal and sorghum flour to add a bit more fiber.

And what do these Chickpea Chocolate Cookies taste like? 

Sort of like a mix between a brownie and a cookie.

So let's make some Chickpea Chocolate Cookies! They're super easy to make!

Chickpea Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Makes: 16


  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup nut/seed butter (I used sunflower but any nut/seed butter will do)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk (or milk alternative)


Trying to eat healthy all on your own is too darn hard.

In the Healthy U Group we encourage each other to eat better...

1. Mix the wet in a food processor. Blend until smooth (the chickpeas need to be smooth, not chunky).

2. Mix the dry.

3. Add the wet to the dry and mix well.

Directions: The batter will appear quite wet! This is ok!

Let the batter sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes. This allows the chia meal to soak up some liquid.

Use a 1/8 cup scoop, or a spoon and place your mounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

You can also bake my Chickpea Chocolate Cookies as mounds.

Optional: Place your bowl of batter in the fridge for about 1 hour. This makes the batter easier to handle.

Bake: at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

Tastes great once cooled a bit from the oven.

Storage: These cookies store well in a sealed jar, on the counter, for about 3 days. These cookies can be frozen.
