These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies are a great allergy-friendly recipe. No flour used, sweetened with dates, and made with sunflower butter for a nut-free healthy treat.
*It’s best to use a chocolate plant based protein powder here. I did not test with whey. If looking to omit the protein powder, I have not tested this way but I suggest using 1/3 cup cocoa powder total and adding in 2-3 TBSP of a flour like 1:1 gluten-free flour or oat flour. I made these cookies in a food processor, but could be made in a powerful blender as well. Just make sure your chickpeas and dates get broken down – you may have to scrape down the sides of the blender often. These cookies aren’t super sweet as written but you could add 2 TBSP of granulated sugar (coconut, brown, cane, etc.) if you’d like. Nutrition information calculated with additional mini chips
