Vegan Chickpea Protein Cookies

Today, we take a stroll down Chickpea Lane and make some super easy AND delicious Vegan Chickpea Protein Cookies. You only need a few ingredients for these cookies and you should have most of them on hand!

For these chickpea cookies you’re going to start by draining AND rinsing 1 can worth of chickpeas. Do your best to remove all of the water after rinsing them.

Add into a food processor or really powerful blender those rinsed chickpeas, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of almond flour or substitute, 2 tablespoons of a sweetener, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of brown rice syrup, 1 regular scoop or 2 small scoops worth of a vegan friendly powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

I’ve also used oat and whole wheat pastry flour here as well with great success. Almond flour will give you the best overall macros.

Process or blend everything together until it’s smooth, this should take around :30 seconds.

Here is where you can lightly mix in some chocolate chips or whatever else you want!

Baked Chickpea Cookies

Take out a baking sheet and line it with some parchment paper (prevents sticking). If you don’t have parchment paper you could also just coat your sheet with some non-stick cooking spray.

Continue by shaping and pressing down your mix into cookies.

Put those chickpea cookies in the oven on 350F/176C for around 12-15 minutes.

You can’t go wrong with these chickpea cookies. They have a nice dense and chewy chocolate chip texture to them! Seriously good!

Chickpea Cookie Tips

Brown Rice Syrup is a great lower sugar substitute for honey and maple syrup in most recipes.

You can change up the flavor of your protein cookies by using different flavor protein powder. Cinnamon bun, chocolate, birthday cake, and so on!

    5 stars
    These came out better than expected.
    I didn’t have enough almond flour (forgot to check before I started cooking) so I used a bit of coconut flour and they worked great.
    I will have to make a double batch next time.
