These vegan chickpea cookie dough balls are a fabulous snack post workout, surf or mid-beach day. The healthy little treats come together in minutes, and you'd never guess they're made with chickpeas! 


Units Scale
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp coffee granules
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 cups vegan chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life)


1. For extra smooth protein balls, simmer chickpeas in water for 15 minutes. Drain, rinse, and (carefully) remove skins if you have some extra time. 

2. Place all ingredients except chocolate chips into food processor and blend until smooth (1-2 minutes). 

3. Scoop dough into mixing bowl and let cool for 5-10 minutes so the chocolate doesn't melt. Gently mix in chocolate chips, then scoop into balls. Refrigerate for at least 15 mins, then enjoy! 


Refrigerate protein bites until ready to eat for up to 5 days. 

You may freeze the dough balls for up to 2 months in an airtight container.
