Prep Time:




  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 scoop (30 grams) protein powder
  • 1 large organic egg or 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoon water)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon powdered white stevia
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened carob chips or chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. Place all ingredients but carob chips in your food processor and pulse with the “S” blade.
  3. Remove bowl from machine and add in carob chips. Mix with hands and form into balls, and place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they start to crackle.


I used a combination of vanilla rice + plain hemp protein powders.

How much stevia you need is dependent on what type you’re using. Start with a couple of pinches, taste before the egg is added to the mix, then add a bit more. Alternatively, you could use 1/3 cup coconut sugar or other sugars.
