🌟 Chickpea Nuggets 🌟 



  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (can substitute for gluten-free breadcrumbs if preferred)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil



  1. Preheat the oven to 190 ° C.
  2. In a food processor or blender, pulse the chickpeas until they're broken down but still slightly chunky.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Add the chickpeas to the breadcrumb mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Using your hands, form the mixture into nugget shapes, pushing extra breadcrumb onto the outside (optional), and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle the nuggets with olive oil.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until the nuggets are crispy and golden brown. Enjoy with your favourite sauce!
