Vegan Cookie Dough Energy Balls made with 7 ingredients and no baking required! They are a great healthy snack or breakfast on the go with only 111 calories per bite – high protein, low carb and low sugar. 



  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup vegan vanilla protein powder (I used Vegan Brand – pea protein)
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips or cocoa nibs


  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Place in a paper towel, dry off. If some of the skins start to come off peel them off and discard. (this will help the cookie dough not be as gritty)
  2. Add chickpeas, peanut butter, maple syrup, chia seeds, protein powder and cinnamon to a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add chickpea cookie dough mixture to a small bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll into 1″ balls. Serve immediately.
  5. *** Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. ***
