Pumpkin Cookie Dough Bites

Maggie Michalczyk, RDN
These pumpkin cookie dough bites are so delicious you won't even believe they're made with chickpeas! I love that they're made with just a few simple ingredients, low in sugar and taste like cookie dough! 
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Servings 12 balls


  • 1 can chickpeas garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup creamy unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup milk or dark chocolate chips I used Lily's Sweets chocolate chips
  • sea salt flakes


  • Add all of the ingredients together in a bowl of a food processor, pulse to combine. 
  • Once pulsed for a couple of minutes you should start to see a thick dough.
  • Remove from food processor and stir in chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop out roughly, a 2 tbsp. serving. Roll in the palm of your hands into a ball and place on a sheet of parchment paper. 
  • Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle the batch with a little bit of flakey sea salt and or drizzle with extra melted chocolate chips.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before grabbing a bite!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
