chickpea baby cookies

I just want to start this recipe off by saying these DO NOT taste nice! They have no sugar, no gluten, no dairy, no nuts and not much flavour BUT they are high protein, nutritious and a really great savoury biscuit your little one can munch on and give you a bit of peace and quiet! They are also super easy and quick to make, which is always a bonus.

Chickpea Baby Cookies

GF | DF | NF | RSF
Course 2 meals a day, BLW, Snack
Servings 6 cookies


  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted but not hot
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 180C bake and line a tray with baking paper.
  • To a large bowl add the coconut oil and egg and whisk with a fork until combined. Ensure the coconut oil is not hot or it will start to cook the egg.
  • Add the chickpea flour and baking powder and stir to combine. The mixture should resemble a 'dough' consistency.
  • Roll the mixture into 6 even sized cookies and gently flatten with your finger.
  • Bake for around 10-15 minutes until they are just golden (they will harden once cooled) and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.


Store in airtight container on bench top for 2 days or fridge for 4 days.
Dough can be frozen for up to 3 months uncooked.
I havent tried a egg free version, a flax egg should work (if you try, let me know in the comments!)
