Chosen add-ins (each amount is for 1/4 of the recipe so you can make four types with this recipe- see note if you want to make just one variety):

    Chocolate Chip:

    • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

    Cranberry Coconut:

    • 2 tbsp toasted coconut
    • 3 tbsp dried cranberries


    • 1 tbsp of sprinkles plus a few more for the top

    Double chocolate


    • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas, peanut butter, vanilla, almond flour, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt.
    • Mix for about a minute, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix for another minute or so until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
    • Add almond milk as desired to achieve a texture that is more of a dip.Divide the cookie dough mixture into 4 equal portions. Use a rubber spatula to fold the mix-ins for each variation into each portion of dough.
    • Cover and refrigerate the cookie doughs until ready to serve.


    Rinse and dry the chickpeas well, then rub them through your hands to remove the skins. 
    I used 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, but you can use more or less to taste.
    For a cookie dough texture, you won't need any milk to thin it. However, for more of a dip texture, you could add 2-3 tbsp of almond milk.
    To make the entire batch one flavour, use these amounts:
    Chocolate Chip: 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
    Cranberry Coconut: 1/2 cup toasted coconut + 2/3 cup dried cranberries
    Sprinkles: 1/4 cup of sprinkles, plus a few more for the top
    Double chocolate: 2 tbsp cocoa powder + 4 tsp unsweeened almond milk + 4 tsp maple syrup + 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
