Easy No-Bake Cranberry Chickpea Cookies

Easy No-Bake Cranberry Chickpea Cookies

Recipe By: @athomewithastghik

If you’re looking for a tasty way to enjoy chickpeas, try this no-bake cookie recipe. All four of my kids enjoyed it, as did I! It comes together quickly and is such a nutritious treat to snack on.


  • 1 1/2 cups of canned chickpeas (I used no-salt added)- drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup small diced sweetened dried cranberries, small diced raisins, or mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Add chickpeas to a food processor and blend until they’re broken down.
  2. Add walnuts, and blend until they’re broken down and finely ground.
  3. Add the peanut butter, ground cinnamon, ground flaxseed, and maple syrup. Blend until the mixture comes together. Transfer it to a bowl. Add the small diced cranberries and gently mix them in.
  4. Use a tablespoon measure to transfer the mixture to the palm of your hand to form a cookie.
  5. Place the cookies in a refrigerator-safe platter or a glass food storage container in a single layer.
  6. Refrigerate for an hour before serving or keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy them.

Note: if needed to stack the cookies on top of one another in the container, use parchment paper to separate the layers.
