  • Yield: 12 muffin size "bites" 1x


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (see notes for options)
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons nondairy milk or water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 11/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (more or less to taste)
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro or parsley leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray all 12 cups of a standard muffin tin.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli and carrots, cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until softened (add 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to skillet, if needed). Let cool slightly.
  3. In a food processor or blender, process chickpeas, tahini, garlic, milk, lemon juice, cumin, salt and cayenne until blended and smooth; scrape into a large bowl. Stir in vegetables, flaxseed meal and cilantro until combined.
  4. Divide mixture among prepared muffin cups, (about a heaping 1/3 cup each), smoothing tops.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Let cool in tin 20 minutes before removing from muffin tin. Serve warm, room temp, or chilled.


Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 3 months. The pucks will keep at room temperature (lunchbox, travel, hiking) for about 2 days.

Tahini: An equal amount of unsweetened nut or seed butter, or 1 tablespoon olive oil, can be used in pace of the tahini.
