  • 1 15.5 ounce can of chickpeas (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup GF rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp. blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (vegan friendly)


  • Drain and rinse chickpeas and place in food processor and pulse till smooth.
  • Add remaining ingredients reserving the chocolate chips till the end.
  • Pulse till comes together to form a sticky texture.
  • Place mixture in a bowl and fold in chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1 tbsp. cookie scoop shape into balls with your hand and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Better if allowed to chill at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
  • Store in an airtight container in fridge for up to a week.


For a creamier texture you can peel the skins off chickpeas before processing.
Can add extra chocolate chips after rolling into balls.
Could also use a 2 tbsp. cookie scoop for bigger bites and you'd get half the servings.
