There are many health attributes of The Amazing Chickpea – rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. However, we think that the greatest benefit may be its delicious flavor. While other nut butter alternatives have removed peanuts from their recipes, in many cases they’ve also removed the flavor. The beloved, iconic American peanut butter flavor, with its balance of sweet, salty and unique protein-rich flavor, is missing from most other spreads. That nutty flavor profile is front and center in The Amazing Chickpea Spreads. With a mixture of chickpeas, sunflower seeds, oil and sugar, The Amazing Chickpea captures the essential flavor and texture that people love so much. Some people are sure they are tasting peanut butter when they taste The Amazing Chickpea. 

In addition to creating this product for families + individuals, we wanted to offer our nut-free spreads to schools and other organizations. We are happy to provide samples for you to try yourself, if you are still in doubt. Just contact us via phone (612) 548-1099, email us at k12support@theamazingchickpea.com, or request free samples.

We offer 1 M/MA Nut-Free Shelf-Stable, Gluten-Free spreads that are great for schools and other programs.


Founder Sunil Kumar’s oldest daughter loves protein-rich nut butters. Unfortunately, she could not offer PBJ sandwich to her friends due to nut allergies. He realized the limited options in the market for great-tasting and truly healthy snack options. Because of this, Sunil decided to look for an alternative way of providing protein-rich peanut butter alternative, so parents wouldn’t have to worry about potential allergy issues.

Sunil started selling The Amazing Chickpea butter spread at local twin cities farmers’ market. Customers were surprised at how similar The Amazing Chickpea tastes to peanut butter! Now after two and half years, The Amazing Chickpeas is sold in retail stores across the United States and Canada. Find a store near you here!
