Chickpea Nuggets

Nuggets…..but like not the ones that are made with pink “chicken” goop that spews out of a machine…real whole food chickpeas, flax seed, gluten free bread crumbs! Turned into soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside nuggets!


What You’ll Need:

  • 1  can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 TBL of ground flax ( I used golden flax, any flax will work)
  • 1 organic, free range egg
  • half of 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp granulated onion powder
  • 1 TbL nutritional yeast
  • 1 /2 gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1/3  cup gluten free bread crumbs & 1/4 cup of ground flax for coating


What To Do: 

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Pour the drained chickpeas into a food processor and process for a few seconds.
    3. Next add all the remaining ingredients, except the extra bread crumbs and flax seed for the coating.
    4. Process everything all up together, the look of the chickpea mash should resemble hummus.
    5. * Note* if the mixture is to dry, add 1 tbl of water and re blend
    6. Scoop up tablespoon sized globs and roll them into balls then smash them into nugget shapes ( LOL )
    7. In a separate bowl, take your breading mixture ( bread crumbs and flax seeds) & roll the “nuggets” in the mixture to completely coat them evenly.
    8. On a large, coconut oil greased cookie sheet lay out the nuggets, but don’t let them touch.
    9. Bake for 15 minutes and then flip for about 5
    10. Take em out and make your fav dipping sauce
    11. I used both organic ketchup & home made honey dill ( literally honey, dill and some lemon juice are all of the ingredients.)
    12. ENJOY. Serve with a massive side salad or look up one of my kale detox salad recipes 😉
