A delicious and healthy seven ingredient, ten minute Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that is vegan, gluten-free, naturally sweetened, and safe to eat raw! It’s made with chickpeas and tahnin for an added plant-based protein boost!
I remember years back I tried cookie dough made from chickpeas and I was definitely underwhelmed. I’m not sure if I just didn’t try a great recipe, or if my taste buds have drastically changed since then, or maybe my love for chickpeas has just grown that much. Perhaps all the above.
I thought it was about time to revisit this splendid idea of making edible raw cookie dough from my one of my favorite legumes, chickpeas!
This 7-ingredient Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough comes together in about 10 minutes total (maybe less!) and you can devour right away, add it to your smoothie bowls, your ice cream, on top of cakes (uhh totally doing that soon!), whatever you would use cookie dough for. I mean, shoot, cookie dough was always my favorite part of the ice cream anyway… anyone else searching the scoop just for the cookie dough pieces? Just ditch the ice cream and have straight up scoops of cookie dough, like duh!
The most tedious part about this recipe is removing the skins from the chickpeas, but then once that is done you simply add them to your food processor/blender with all the other ingredients, blend, and done!
If you haven’t had chickpea cookie dough, I assure you it’s better than you might be imagining. It’s also amazing because since it’s made from chickpeas and naturally sweetened, so you can call absolutely call this cookie dough “healthy”, eat the whole batch and not feel guilty. I will neither confirm nor deny that happened LOL. Annnnd now I have to go make more…
As always I love to see your re-creations of my recipes so be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook!

This sounds delicious. Is it possible to baked this into cookies?
Thanks Patricia! I haven’t tried baking them, it’s on my list to do soon! 🙂 there isn’t any baking powder/soda in the dough so they wouldn’t spread, so I may need to tweak the recipe for baked cookies. Stay tuned! ?
