Sugar/Fat/Gluten/Dairy Free Chocolate Chickpea Cookies

These cookies are sugar free, gluten free and fat free, and they are super easy to throw together, as well! Just combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of your food processor and puree until smooth. Then scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets, toss into an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees, and bake for about twelve minutes. 

These delicious, chocolate cookies are packed with chickpeas, giving them a good source of protein and fiber. They are made sugar free with NuNaturals' NuStevia Cocoa Syrup, which provides an easy way to take the sugar out of a recipe without really noticing the difference.

NuNaturals has many different NuStevia products (in addition to other items) and I love experimenting with them in different recipes. You can look forward to me posting many more sugar free recipes in the near future!

Sugar Free Chocolate Chickpea Cookies 
  • 2 cups Chickpeas (or one can)
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons NuStevia Cocoa Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine drained chickpeas, cocoa powder, NuStevia Cocoa Syrup, applesauce, vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Puree, scraping down sides occasionally, until very smooth.
  3. Scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet (they won't spread much at all) and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Makes 12 to 18 cookies.

Although NuNaturals sent me the products, all of the opinions and the recipe are by me.
