Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have a wonderful texture and are slightly denser than the chocolate chip cookie recipe in the first The PlantPure Nation Cookbook. They are gluten free and lower in fat since I opted to use the dried peanut butter. You’ll need a blender for this recipe, but it’s well worth the effort.


Prep time    15 minutes  

Cook time   10-12 minutes    

Yield               18-24 cookies



  • 1 tablespoon flax meal or chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • ½ cup dried peanut butter (I use PB2)
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • one 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup plant based milk
  • 3/4 cup sucanat (or coconut sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix the flax meal (or chia seeds) with the water and set aside.
  3. In a blender or food processor, grind the oats into a flour and place the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the dried peanut butter, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips. Blend until thoroughly combined.
  4. In a blender add garbanzo beans, milk, sucanat, and vanilla. Blend until very smooth and creamy.
  5. Fold the bean mixture and the flax/water mixture into the dry ingredient mixture and and mix only until combined. Do not over mix.
  6. Drop tablespoons of the cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I like to shape my cookies by dipping a spoon into water smoothing out each cookie and pressing slightly. This keeps them uniform and smooth. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until dry and lightly golden.

✏️ Tips & Hints

  •  If you cannot find dried peanut butter, you can also use 1/3 cup natural peanut butter. This will add to the fat, but you will get a very similar final outcome.
