Chocolate Chip (chickpea) Protein Cookies


April 10, 2016

Don’t let the name scare you! I know when you think cookie you don’t naturally think chickpeas. But I promise you it works!

These a soft cookies and go particularly well with a big mug of tea whilst they are still slightly warm.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins


1 can of chickpeas thoroughly rinsed and drained

3 tablespoons of honey/agave syrup/stevia

30g dark chocolate chips

40g porridge oats

1tsp vanilla extract

30g protein powder – you can use any flavour but chocolate or vanilla works well

1 tablespoon peanut butter


1Preheat your oven to 180’c.

2Add the chick peas to a food processor and blend until smooth.

3Add all the other ingredients other than the chocolate chips and blend until mixed.

4Transfer the mixture into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips.

5Using your hands roll the mixture into large walnut sized balls and place on a baking sheet leaving a big gap between each one.

6Once you have done this with all the mixture press the top down with the back of a spoon to make a cookie shape.

7Bake the cookies for 20 – 25 minutes until they are golden brown and firm in the centre.

8Note – these cookies are best consumed on the day of making them as they soften further when kept.
