Gluten-free cookie. The flour is entirely chickpea, with a touch of cornstarch. Great taste and texture, like better or gourmet cookies.

  • Beat butter, brown sugar, egg, peanut butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Mix chickpea flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; add to butter mixture and mix thoroughly into a cookie dough. Fold chocolate, oats, and nuts into the dough.

  • Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

  • Roll cookie dough into heaping tablespoon-sized balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 13 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking rack for 2 to 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

The peanut butter removes the strange chickpea flour taste. A little extra vanilla wouldn't hurt things, either. These are really good!

Flatten cookies with spatula after baking if too puffy. The chickpea flour makes them cakey. If flattened, they will have a texture more standard for this type of cookie.

These were shockingly good! I really was hesitant in using that much chickpea flour but it actually works! I made my own chickpea flour by grinding up dried chickpeas until very fine and then sifting out the flour (only do this in a heavy duty blender and not a food processor or you'll burn it out). I also upped the peanut butter to 1/2 cup (we have a bit of a peanut butter addiction in our house) used about 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips in place of the chunks. I also wouldn't generously grease your cookie sheets as these cookies have enough butter in them not to stick (parchment paper works better). I got 35 cookies out of this recipe. Read More

They worked out quite well. I stuck to the recipe though I added some cinnamon to half the batch for fun. Either way was good! Read More
