Dark Chocolate Chickpea Cookies With White Chocolate Chips

These dark chocolate chickpea cookies have an almost Oreo-like flavor, while being much healthier. The chickpeas not only make these cookies easily gluten free, but they also add fiber and protein to the cookies.

These cookies are moist, flavorful, and have very little fat. They are flour-free, and the white chocolate chips add a good amount of sweetness to the dark chocolate cookie. 
Go ahead and try them right now.

  1. These look great! By the looks of them you'd never know they had a chickpea base!

  2. I have not used chickpea flour in cookies before. Curious to try out your recipe to see whether they taste as good as they look. Thanks for sharing them at #glutenfreefridays

    1. These cookies are made with actual chickpeas from a can, not chickpea flour. Hope you try them and enjoy them!
