  • 15 oz. chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or more


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Pour chickpeas into a strainer, then rinse them for 15 seconds or so. Place chickpeas into a food processor and pulse for approximately 10 seconds.
  • Add peanut butter, syrup, vanilla, and baking soda; pulse together. The mixture or "dough" should form a large ball in the food processor.
  • Remove blade from your food processor, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a spoon or ice cream scooper to scoop dough out onto your baking sheet. Bake cookies for 17-20 minutes. The cookies will be slightly underdone, and that's ok! You want them that way so that they're soft and chewy.
  • Enjoy!


Yields 10-12 cookies
