  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed well
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ? tsp salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • almond milk optional


  • Add all ingredients (excluding chocolate chips) into the food processor and blend until smooth. Optional to add in some almond milk if the mixture is too dry for your liking.
  • Next, mix in chocolate chips.



  • If you’re all out of peanut butter, you can swap for any nut butter of your choice. Almond butter and cashew butter are great alternatives.
  • I like using real vanilla extract instead of artificial for the best flavor.
  • Are you making this to enjoy with your kids? You could totally add some sprinkles on top!
  • If the mixture is too dry for your liking, you can add some almond milk to the food processor. Blend to combine before adding in the chocolate chips.
  • If you have mini chocolate chips, they are perfect for this recipe as you can get multiple little bits of chocolate in every bite. 
  • If your food processor runs warm and the mixture is warm, let it cool for a couple of minutes before folding in the chocolate chips, so it doesn’t melt into the batter.
