Hummus Cookies

Hummus Cookies

Life is Better with fresh baked Cookies!

Few years ago I was introduced to cookies dipped in milk. Before I did eat cookies and also sometimes dipped them into my tea but rather rarely and definitely they didn’t have a spot in my cravings list. Well, since that day the history changed.

Oftentimes cookies are the worst dessert to choose from – being full of sugar and gluten. I am not a huge fan of oat cookies, or maybe I just haven’t found the ones I love and my recipe experiments have been fine but not something extraordinary.
I came up with my new favourite and super simple recipe. It uses chickpeas and dates making it refined sugar free and also avoiding the white flour. I’m sure even if you don’t measure the ingredients it will work out just fine😉

I call them my Hummus Cookies 😆

This Recipe Is:
  • Simple
  • Doesn´t require too many ingredients
  • Ingredients don´t have to be measured exactly
  • Beetroot can be left out
  • No baking skills needed

  • food processor


  • 1 can chickpeas rinsed
  • 150 g dates soaked 30 min in hot water
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1 small beetroot boiled and peeled
  • cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • handful chocolate chips


blend in food processor

  • first the soaked dates into a smooth paste
  • add all the other ingredients besides coconut oil and chocolate chips, blend well
  • mix in the oil

stir in the chocolate pieces

    place the batter into the fridge for 1h to firm up

      form into balls and flatten on a parchment paper.

        bake about 25 min in 180 C°

          let the cookies cool down and firm up more before lifting off the tray


            • makes about 15 cookies depending on the size
            • you won't feel the beetroot taste if you're afraid of, I added it for the colour. Can also substitute with 3 tbsp of any kind of liquid (date soaking water, plant milk, beetroot juice)
            • if you want to make them oil-free replace it with 3 tbsp of liquid
            • the dough is soft and sticky, keeping it in the fridge for a while to let the coconut oil harden and help with clean hand rolling. But if impatient to wait or prefer to omit the oil it works fine
            • after baking the cookies will be still soft, let them cool down on the tray to harde
