Nut Free Chickpea Cookies
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’m still learning to like tahini and my kids are still learning to like chickpeas but served up in a cookie, and we are all happy! These are a super fun way to get more legumes into your diet. And you can play around with the flavour and design your own creations.

🍴 Makes: 12
🕒 Prep: 10 min Cook: 30 min


  • 425g thinned chickpea, drained (use leftover liquid to make egg free meringue or choc cupcakes)
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup craisons (dried cranberries)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Drain chickpeas and rub dry in a clean tea towel
  3. Place all ingredients in a food processor (except choc chips, coconut and crasions)
  4. Process for 30 seconds, or until mixture is smooth and combined
  5. Stir in choc chips, coconut and craisons
  6. On a lined baking tray, place 12 tablespoons of mixture and flatten slightly
  7. Cook for 30 minutes


Try changing the flavour by using diced dried apricots or sultanas in place of craisons

You can make your own creations by changning the chocolate chips, coconut and crasions

If  you can have nuts then you can subsitute tahini for natural peanut butter or another nut butter
