Chocolate Chickpea Biscuits

  • Author: The 4 Blades
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 24 biscuits, can be doubled


These are my new favourite biscuits. They are so light and muffin-like. Hate chickpeas? Don’t worry. So does my partner. He was clueless that they were in there for over 6 months before I finally told him. You can’t taste them at all due to the cocoa and sugar. If you want a healthier version, you can reduce the sugar or substitute for your sweetener of choice. I use Hoppers 100s & 1000s in this recipe, hence the duller coloured sprinkles, but given they are free of artificial flavours and colours I can deal with it. I think they look cute. – Peta
