  • Food processor


  • 1 cup canned chickpeas (no salt added)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (no added sugar or oil)
  • ½ cup fine almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • ¼ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • Sprinkle of salt (optional)


  • Rinse off your canned chickpeas, then measure 1 cup. Remove the skins for a smoother texture, but this is not completely necessary.
  • Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips to a food processor.
  • Mix until everything is blended and smooth.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon.


Remove the skins of the chickpeas for a smoother texture. This is not necessary, but it will take this cookie dough to the next level!
This cookie dough is not meant to be baked into cookies. It is an edible cookie dough that you can just eat by the spoonful, or use it as a fruit dip!
If you want to turn this dough into balls, you can add more almond flour until the dough can be rolled into balls. I recommend 2 tablespoons of dough per ball.
Store this cookie dough in a container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
