Don’t be fooled by the use of chick peas in this recipe. These cookies are winners in the taste department. Wheat, egg and dairy free, so great for those with allergies or wanting a sweet cookie, without being too naughty. Try them…you will not be disappointed!

Ingredients (serves 15 | makes 15 Cookies)

  • 400g Tin of drained chick peas
  • 45g Rolled oats
  • 80g Brown Sugar
  • 50g Cocoa or cocao
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100 g Peanut butter
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Decorations of your choice


  1. Place oats in food processor. Blitz for 20 seconds.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor. Blitz for 30 seconds.
  3. Rolls mixture into 15 balls and flattening slightly your palm of your hand.
  4. Place onto a lined baking tray and sprinkle with your favourite decorations. I used 100s and 1000s, so the recipe can remain dairy free.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees.


You can replace the peanut butter with ordinary butter if you would like to make this recipe nut free. These cookies have a soft texture...similar to a cake.

  • Amazing what veggies and such you can hide with chocolate


  • Chickpeas in a sweet biscuit sounds interesting but good to get some protein in there


  • Doesn’t appeal to me but thanks for sharing.


  • They look delicious


  • Lovely ingredients.


  • WOW! What an interesting combination. I do have most of the ingredients, so can taste-test.


  • They look so delicious,thanks!


  • I am making these today yum! My daughter doesn’t like the texture of whole chickpeas but love them in food and hummas so these won’t last long.


  • Sounds great – thanks for sharing and for the tip about the liquid !!!


  • Do not forget to keep the liquid the chick peas are in as can be used for making meringues instead of egg whites..


  • Omg I love it.will try it this weekend


  • I’m amazed but these look so gooood


  • I like that it’s different. Must try it. Thanks.


  • I am SOOOO making these. I’m convinced that chickpeas in foods are awesome but my kids disagree! So I’ll be making these and not saying anything about the ingredients!!!

    • I made the mistake of telling my lot there was chickpeas in their biscuits and they would not eat anymore. So now do not tell them anymore and they go quick when cooked.


  • These look delicious and they are so simple to make.
