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

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups chopped chocolate
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup chopped mixed nuts, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. 2 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.
