Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I bought some chickpea flour, and I really wasn't sure what to do with it. I found this recipe, and I tried it. The cookies turn out kind of cake-like, but nice. One word of caution, the batter tastes disgusting, but it shouldn't be a reflection on the end result.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  3. Mix chickpea flour, salt, soda, and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Stir in chips and nuts.
  6. Drop by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet. I use parchment paper, but if you don't, grease the baking sheet. (If your dough is very thick, push it down and spread it out a little. My dough was soft and sticky, and it melted and spread out in the oven.).
  7. Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes. These cookies will have to be a little darker than golden brown so that they will set and hold together.
  8. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing. Cool completely on a wire rack.

This recipe makes a near-perfect cookie. My gluten-TOLerant boyfriend eats most of them every time I make them >(. I tried adding cocoa powder to the mix - about 1/3 cup - and got a fantastic, rich & chewy brownie cookie. They are super sweet, and still turned out great when I reduced the sugar by 1/3. Now I want to experiment with adding oats and chocolate chips, and eventually do a soft gingersnap version. Thanks, MissLinguist!

These were wonderful! i have recently gone gluten free. there are many recipes for baked goods using combinations of different gluten-free flours... it can get very complicated. this recipe is so straightforward and delicious! i used sliced almonds for the nuts, and i subbed flax seed meal/water for the eggs. no one could tell they were made from chickpea flour! great recipe, will definitely make again. thanks MissLinguist!

This was great. I try and eat low carb/high fiber when ever possible. I used 1 cup dark chocolate chips and 1 cup brown sugar blend splenda and it was great. THANKS
