Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chunk Cookies (With Peanut Butter and Oats)

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"These cookies are gluten-free, and have great taste and texture, like better gourmet cookies. The flour is entirely chickpea with a touch of corn starch. The peanut butter removes the strange chickpea-flour taste. A little extra vanilla wouldn't hurt things either. These are really good!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Beat brown sugar, butter, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk chickpea flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture. Stir chocolate, oats, and walnuts into peanut butter mixture until dough is evenly combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough until chilled, about 15 minutes.
  4. Form dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute any chopped nuts for the walnuts, if desired.
  • You can flatten the cookies with a spatula after baking it they are too puffy; the chickpea flour makes them cakey. If flattened, they will have a texture more standard for this type of cookie.

SO much better than I expected! I was only looking to use up some chickpea flour, but found a gem. I can't stop 'sampling' them. The peanut butter flavor is just enough to offset the chickpea ...

Excellent. I substituted Spenda brown sugar for the regular brown sugar and 2 whites for the 1 whole egg. I was afraid they were not baked enough because they looked basically the same after 1...
