  • 15 oz chickpeas
  • ½ cup gluten-free oats
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips (save ¼ cup of it to sprinkle on top before baking)
  • flaky sea salt, to garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 340°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.
  • Add the chickpeas, oats, light brown sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, maple syrup, light olive oil, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar to a food processor or high-powered blender. Process until you get a smooth cookie dough.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, saving about a ¼ cup to use as garnish.
  • Drop about a tablespoon of chickpea cookie dough onto the parchment paper. Use a wet spoon or wet fingers to flatten the cookie dough, and top with chocolate chips. Bake them in the oven for 20 minutes, and cool completely before eating.
