How many chickpea recipes am I going to post?! I think chickpeas are such a versatile legume- so I just keep using them. They work for savory dishes AND they are perfect for sweet treats. Chickpeas add fiber and protein in foods that might otherwise be lacking. 

I love having quick snacks on hand that don’t come from a package. I make a batch of these and keep them in the freezer! When I get the craving for just-a-little-something sweet, I can pop one out and let it thaw for a few minutes before enjoying.  

The best part? I can feel good about eating them. Chickpea Cookie Dough Bites are a relatively high-fiber snack with healthy fats from coconut and added protein to help dampen the glycemic response

Main ingredients in CHickpea cookie dough bites

To make these little bites come to life you’ll need: 


The “flour” in this recipe is coconut and ground oats, making them a great gluten-free option for those with sensitivities. I also chose not to use any nut or seed butters. In a protein ball recipe, that’s pretty rare! However, I’ve found that my skin doesn’t do great with most nuts and seeds. 

If you want to add some more variety to these, you can add in freeze-dried raspberries, seeds, or swap out the coconut flour for almond flour. I don’t recommend using a different legume here, as chickpeas offer a unique texture that won’t be replicated with other beans.

The Perfect Drizzle

I use chopped Hu Kitchen dark chocolate IN the Chickpea Cookie Dough bites as well as drizzled on top. If you’re struggling to get a good drizzle, use a small amount of coconut oil as you are melting down the chocolate. This gives is a more ‘runny’ consistency so you can adequately zig-zag it on top. 

No perfection here: be prepared to get a little messy!
