The Original Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (aka Chickpea Cookies)

Looking for the chickpea cookies from Pinterest or Facebook? Here’s the original recipe! Scroll to the bottom of the post for a how-to recipe video.

Chickpea cookies! Chickpea cookies with no flour, no oil, no white sugar. These are just full of chickpeas. And they’re my very favorite healthy cookie so far!* I don’t know if they really classify as cookies so I’ll go with cookie dough bites.

And as a bonus, they’re grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. Just in case that matters to anyone out there! And if you’re worried about the chickpeas, don’t be. I don’t like chickpeas and won’t eat them but that didn’t prevent me from inhaling these.

* 2017 update: this post is 5 years old and I have a new favorite. :D You HAVE to try these paleo chocolate chip cookies if you haven’t already! There’s also a vegan option. And for hot summer days, these no-bake oatmeal cookies (naturally gluten-free + vegan) are my favorite!

I used homemade peanut butter in these cookies but store-bought (the kind with just peanuts and salt) works just as well.

Here’s how to make peanut butter! There’s also a video included. All you need is peanuts and a food processor (which you already have to pull out for this chickpea cookie recipe!).

These need the chocolate. Don’t go making them without the chocolate and then tell me that they weren’t sweet or gooey enough! These would be incredibly boring without the chocolate.

And for some weird reason, these cookie dough bites do not taste yummy in dough form. Baking them somehow brings out the sweetness and peanut butter flavor. Or maybe it’s just all that melted chocolate.

One thing I’ve learned since starting this blog is that people really love closeups of melted stuff. So there you go. :)

These aren’t the most beautiful cookie dough bites, but fresh out of the oven, with all that gooey chocolate, I bet you can’t tell that these are made with chickpeas. Or are grain-free. But cold? Yuck. These need to be warm!

You can either freeze the balls and pop a few in the oven whenever it’s on, or simply put them in the microwave until they’re warm and gooey again.

By the way, if you’re a peanut butter lover like I am, you have to try these peanut butter balls. They’re also gluten-free and have a vegan option!

Please read the following before asking a question! It will probably answer it. :)

  • Tons of people have posted the nutritional analysis for these. They’re supposedly anywhere between 80-130 calories, which seems like a huge range to me. Please use a recipe analyzer like on CalorieCount if you need more information.
  • You can use almond butter, sun butter, or whatever nut butter you like.
  • The peanut butter should be the kind with only peanuts and salt. No added fat or sugar. Be careful because there are some “natural” brands out there which aren’t really natural. I find that this peanut butter is usually expensive so I make my own. You can make your own in only 5 minutes with a food processor. Check that out here.
  • Chickpea flour won’t work. I don’t think plain hummus will either.
  • I haven’t tried anything other than chickpeas but others have used butter beans, navy beans, red kidney beans, great northern beans, and lentils with success. I generally don’t like goodies made with those types of beans but I love these cookies made with chickpeas. Please use chickpeas unless you have an allergy!
  • Doing this in a blender won’t work and might kill the blender. Making these in a Blendtec blender or something equally powerful might work but I haven’t tried it.
  • Adding random stuff like eggs… probably won’t work either. ;) Experimenting is great but I think this is a bad recipe to experiment with. But thanks to the experimenters who left feedback, I’ve been able to update the recipe with alternatives to honey and peanut butter. Thanks everyone!
  • For a totally sugar free version, use 30 drops of Stevia and cacao nibs.
  • Do not double the recipe! It might be too much for your machine and could damage it.
  • For a vegan version, you can’t use honey. Use agave.
  • For a dairy-free version, use Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They’re just as delicious as regular chocolate chips. SO good!

And thanks for everyone who has pinned and left feedback. I really appreciate it. :)

Want more gluten-free treats? Here are some of my favorites!

  • Coconut Rum Bundt Cake drenched in coconut rum syrup - can be made with all-purpose, gluten-free or whole grain flours. With a dairy-free option (please click through to the recipe to see the dietary-friendly options)
  • These paleo chocolate banana muffins are bursting with banana flavor and are super rich and decadent! (honey sweetened, grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free)
  • The Best Gluten-free Brownies (naturally sweetened, dairy-free, 100% whole grain). Can also be made with whole wheat flour!
  • Mini Cheesecakes {grain-free, gluten-free}

The Original Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (aka Chickpea Cookies)
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Ready in:
  • Yield: 14 1" cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups canned chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel1
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter, SunButter Natural or almond butter - room temperature2
  • 1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave or maple syrup for vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder3
  • a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
  • 1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips (use vegan and dairy-free chocolate chips, if needed)

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they're combined.
  2. Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  3. With wet hands, form into 1 1/2" balls. Place onto a Silpat or a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don't do much rising.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes. The dough balls will still be very soft when you take them out of the oven. They will not set like normal cookies.
  5. Store in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the fridge) for up to 1 week.

Notes

  1. My can of chickpeas was 400 grams, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons.
  2. Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter. :)
  3. If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.

    Hi. I made these, as suggested by an interview done on the “Half size me” podcast. The guest speaker mentioned these specific cookies and by noon the same they were coming out of my oven!

    I wanted to say in contrast to your tastes, I do think they are delicious raw! I also prefer them out of the fridge as opposed to warmed. My husband liked them warm though!

    I used “Santa Barbara Chocolate” chips, which are one ingredient only, and the honey.

    I will be making this so often. It is a great breakfast food, too! Thanks! Excited to look at the rest of your recipes now. :) Yum!

    These look great. Thanks for sharing. I have PB powder and was wondering if I could sub that in for traditional nut butter. If so, what would be the conversion? I also have dried chickpeas, but I imagine I can soak/prep those for use in place of canned.

      May 26, 2020 @ 6:36 am

      I’m sorry for just now seeing your question! If your PB powder is meant as a sub for peanut butter, then follow the directions for the product so that you have 10 tablespoons of peanut butter. And yes, you can use your dried chickpeas that you then soak and prep. I hope you’ll enjoy the cookies! Sorry again for my slow reply.

    Soo good! I’ve made this recipe twice. I love how quick and simple it is. First time i followed it exactly. 2nd time I was running low on natural pb and had to sub in half regular pb, so it was a mix of Adams natural and Great Value smooth pb. The half regular pb batch came out with an oilier consistency. If I hadn’t made the all-natural batch I doubt I would have really noticed (chocolate+peanut butter = yum! Regardless of texture), but being able to compare them I definitely prefer the natural batch. My Husband wasn’t bothered by the oilier consistency of the second batch and noted that it was “more peanut buttery” which he liked, so to each their own.

If freezing them baked, just reheat them at half power in the microwave until they’re soft and gooey again. :) Thanks a bunch for your comment and sorry for my slow reply.

    You are a genius! I seriously want to nominate you for a Nobel peace prize for creating this recipe! I eat no grains and no sugar but I really miss chocolate chip cookies. These are perfect. To make them with no sugar/ honey I created a honey substitute out of 3/4 C Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener boiled together with 1/2 cup water to which I added 1/2 tsp xanthan gum to thicken and stabilize it. I ended up adding just a bit of powdered pure stevia to it to sweeten it a little more. I used Lily’s Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Baking chips (and added walnuts to the dough because I love walnuts in my cookies). Yours look like they got a nice crisp on the outside. Mine don’t look like that. any tips on how to get the outside to brown/crisp?

      Aww, thank you! I will gladly accept your prize! :D Haha. You made my day! I’m so glad that your lower-carb version worked. Thanks for sharing how you did it! I wouldn’t say that the tops are crisp. They’re still kind of soft. If yours look a lot different than the photos, then it’s likely because of the sweetener change. You could maybe try the broiler for a minute? But it also might burn. I’ve never tried that with cookies. Thanks again for your comment!

      • Lisa replies to Erin
        December 16, 2019 @ 1:57 am

        You are right, it is probably the sweetener change that makes them not look the same. They are still delicious.

        I realized that the recipe I wrote above to make a sub for honey with monkfruit sweetener is double the amount needed for this recipe. Although I mixed it up like that I only used 1/4 cup of it to = 1/4 cup honey.

        I am trying your Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies today (using monfruit sweetener), the dough is all made and I will bake them in an hour.. I’m so excited!

    Tried these last night and they are excellent. I always remove the shells from my chickpeas before working with them to get the batter a little smoother. If we leave them in the oven another 2 minutes or so, would that help getting them to firm up a little more? Mine were crumbling apart as I’d take a bite.

    I made these for a summer pool party. Kids were devouring them. Their moms were telling them to not eat so many . . . until I told them that these cookies were mostly healthy. I should have made a triple batch instead of just a double.

      I’m so glad that the kids were devouring them and that their moms were okay with it. :) Thanks for your comment! I hope we have summer soon, too. ;)

    Sorry, I know you have over 2000 reviews so I can’t get through all of them. Do you know if anyone has substituted peanut butter for sunflower seed butter to make them school friendly?

      I forgot to mention– I didn’t have honey or maple syrup on hand, so I used regular sugar + 3Tbl almond milk, (suggested below). Turned out perfectly!

    my mother had made these a while back, I loved them so much, to be honest, more then normal chocolate chips cookies! I made them and brought them to work. Told the gluten free girls they can have, and no one else anything. Everyone loved them, one even said yum so buttery! Haha I said well they’re chicpea, no butter! Everyone was shocked and loved, and asked for the recipe:)

      Haha. I’m glad that they thought that the cookies were buttery! And better than normal chocolate chip cookies?! I think you like these better than I do. ;) Thanks for your nice comment!

    Tried these last night and they are excellent. I always remove the shells from my chickpeas before working with them to get the batter a little smoother. If we leave them in the oven another 2 minutes or so, would that help getting them to firm up a little more? Mine were crumbling apart as I’d take a bite.

      Did they fall apart even after they had cooled? Because after they cool, they should hold together better. If they still fell apart, then you can definitely bake them 2 minutes more and that ought to help.

    These cookies have been a staple for my 2 diabetic pregnancies,thanks for getting me through some desperate times!
    Could you use reconstituted PB2 powder instead of all natural peanut butter? It’s lower calorie and lower fat than even the all natural stuff.

      Hi Michelle, How did these work using PB2, and what measurements did you use? Thanks!

    Hi😃
    First… thank you for the super yummy recipe. I have an unnamed autoimmune disease and removing gluten/dairy/sugar from my diet has helped me feel better. These cookies were my first treat since my diet change. Just one question… I have a sugar substitute that’s a stevia/erythritol blend. The package states that it is twice as sweet as sugar so I would use 1/2 cup if a recipe called for one cup of sugar. Do you think I could use this in your recipe in place of the honey? If so, any idea how much? Thank you!

      Hi there! Sorry for just now seeing your question. I’ve never used a granulated sweetener in these cookies but I know a few commenters have with success. So according to the bag’s instructions, I’d use 2 tablespoons. You might have to add a little bit of liquid if it’s much thicker than when you made it with the honey. I’d love to hear how it comes out!

    I just made these and they are DELICIOUS! The batter was equally amazing. I didn’t have honey/agave or vanilla, so I subbed 1/3C raw organic cane sugar and added 3T of almond milk and 1tsp of allspice and it turned out wonderfully. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

    Do the 1/2 + 2tbsp of peanut all go into the batter? Just wondering if the 2tbsp is for something else?

      It all goes in together! It’s 14 tablespoons all together.
