Healthy Chickpea Nuggets

Serves: 4 Prep: 10_mins Cook: 20_mins


These healthy chickpea nuggets (yes chickpea!) are so tasty that even takeaway-loving children won't notice the difference! Get your 'Little Foodies' to help you make the shapes and they'll be looking forward to them coming out of the oven even more. Serve with a good dollop of our organic ketchup for happy dipping.


50g Rolled Oats

400g (1 can) Biona Organic Chickpeas

1 Teaspoon Onion Powder

½ Teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ Teaspoon Ground Cumin 

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

50g Breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Blitz the oats in a blender or food processor until fine.
  3. Drain the chickpeas over a bowl, reserving the liquid (aquafaba), then add the chickpeas to the blender or food processor with the blitzed oats, ½ a teaspoon of the onion powder, the garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper and 5 tbsp of the aquafaba. Blitz until it forms a thick paste - with some chunks for texture.
  4. Stir the breadcrumbs with the remaining ½ teaspoon of onion powder and place into a shallow dish.
  5. Roll 1 tablespoon of the chickpea mixture into balls at a time, and shape into nuggets. Coat in breadcrumbs and place onto the baking tray. Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes (they won’t darken much) and enjoy!
