Chickpea choc chip cookies

Chickpea choc chip cookies

gluten free, diary free, peanut butter chocolate chip cookies made with chickpeas

These chickpea choc chip cookies are a fantastic alternative to grain based cookies. The cookies have been kid approved in our house. Perhaps it’s the chocolate chips but we’d like to think there’s a little more to it than that! Chickpeas are a great addition to our kids diets as they are packed full of protein, fibre and are a source of iron and zinc.

These are perfect for making in a Thermomix or high powered blender. Store them in the fridge.

  • 400g can of chickpeas, drained
  • 20g maple syrup
  • 1 egg
