Chocolate lovers, you have a new favorite cookie recipe: Double Chocolate Chickpea Flour Cookies! They are vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, and a cinch to make.
It’s day 7 of the 7 days of Chickpea Flour Cookies!
Chickpeas in chocolate cookies? Oh yes! What better way to top off a week of chickpea cookie ideas than with a doube dose of everyone’s favorite sweet treat.
Chickpea flour works beautifully in a wide range of sweet baking, However, it works especially well with deep flavors, such as chocolate, molasses, dark brown sugar, and spices. In short, it is a perfect ingredient to add to your cold-weather baking repertoire.
And although these cookies are a bit of an indulgence, they still offer a host of health-promoting qualities–antioxidants from the chocolate and cocoa powder, fiber, protein and minerals from the chickpea flour–that more than justify eating two for dessert.
I can also testify that grabbing and gobbling a cookie to go makes great pre-run fuel on a cold winter morning (instant energy + cheer!). Be sure to bring one for your running partner, too 🙂
How to Make Double Chocolate Chickpea Flour Cookies
Another reason to try these cookies? They are incredibly easy to make. Whisk the wet ingredients, add the dry, scoop onto a cookie sheet, and bake. All with pantry ingredients, too.
These cookies have rich, cake-like middles and crispy-chewy edges. They remind of cookies that always arrived on a neighbor’s (much anticipated) Christmas cookie plate; I recall a few squabbles breaking out between me and my siblings (an, occasionally, my Dad) over who would get the last one!
Happy baking, everyone!
