  • 400 g tin of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 40 g oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 g almond butter peanut or cashew butter are also good
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or agave syrup
  • Pinch sea salt optional
  • 50 g dairy free chocolate chips or chocolate chunks or small dried fruits eg sultanas


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan)/220°C/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper.
  • Drain and rinse your tin of chickpeas and place them in a food processor.
  • Add 40g oats, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 60g almond butter, 3 tablespoons of maple syrup and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Pulse for a few minutes until well broken down, stopping a couple of times to scrape the sides down.
  • Once the chickpeas have broken down and everything has formed a rough dough remove from the food processor and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Add 50g chocolate chips. Knead gently to work the choc chips into the dough. If you lightly oil your hands the mixture won't stick so much.
  • Roll into eight balls and place on the baking tray. Flatten into cookie shapes with your hands, leaving a little space between each one.
  • Use a fork to add some texture to the top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until turning golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
