‘CHICKIE BIKKIES’ – CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES | GF | Plant Based | Wholefood | Easy

Soft, chewy and delicious. These cookies are my wholefood and plant-based take on a classic chocolate chip cookie. Personally, I think they hit the spot. 

I have called them 'chickie bikkies' becasue the main ingredient is chickpea flour, which is ground dry, whole chickpeas, a nutrient dense legume. *Tip* - if you have a powerful food processor you can make your own besan flour from whole chickpeas. So, bonus, they are also gluten free!

You could also make them double choc by adding a couple of tablespoons of cacao powder or spice them up with some ginger. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy legends! x H

Makes approx 15 cookie 
Prep time: 5 minutes 
Cook time: 15 - 20 minutes 
Difficulty: Easy 
1 cup chickpea (besan) flour
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used powder) 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
3 tablespoons hulled tahini (or nut butter) 
1/2 cup plant based milk (I used almond) 
1/4 cup maple syrup 
4 medjool dates, pitted (these are the fresh dates)
1 block dark vegan chocolate, roughly chopped 
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celcius, (fan forced). 
Combine all ingredients, except for chocolate, in your food processor or blender. 
Blend until super smooth and evenly combined. 
Chop your chocolate... 
Add half of your chocolate to the mixture and stir to combine. 
Line 2 baking trays with baking paper (non stick) 
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture out onto the baking trays with at least 4 cms between each cookie. 
Sprinkle the remainder of the chocolate over the cookies, lightly pressing them into the mixture and place in the oven to bake for 15 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and alow to cool for 5 minutes before transfering to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

    Hi Natural Harry, I love Whole and have made quite a few recipes already, but vanilla powder is very hard to find and when I did it was $5 for a tablespoon! Where do you get yours or alternatives??
    Thanks Rose

    1. Harry says:

      Hi Rose,

      That is why I have said I used powder but you CAN use any other vanilla. I do think that organic is best. Usually any vanilla from a healthfood or whole food store will do the trick. I just avoid any with ‘flavouring’. Natural is best. Enjoy!

    These are absolutely delicious! My son LOVES them…I’m working on my daughter (she’s been influenced by too many sweet treats I think). Thank you for creating such a yummy and healthy cookie.

    Hello! I would love to make these but cant get hold of besan flour where we are. Do you think a can of chick peas could work? I have so many cans left from our travels in our van haha

    1. Harry says:

      Hi lovely Gem!
      I reckomend using the flour when you can find it. They will still be delicious with chickpeas. More mushy though and no where near the same. If you do, make sure you make them again when you can get besan flour as they are epic!
