Need some healthy study snacks?

Flinders Alumni, Rebecca Greco has another tasty recipe for you to try at home:

Makes approximately 10 cookies


  • 1 x 400g tin chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg (for vegans, replace with 2 tablespoons of the canned chickpea liquid)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of sultanas


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  2. Use a high-speed blender or food processor to blend the chickpeas, peanut butter, egg, almond meal, maple syrup, vanilla essence, baking powder and salt.
  3. When well combined, pour into a bowl and stir through the sultanas.
  4. Roll heaped tablespoons of the mixture into balls and flatten onto a baking tray with baking paper (I like to use an ice cream scoop to evenly portion the cookies).
  5. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until just golden on top. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
