With key ingredients like chickpeas, which sneakily add texture without you even realizing, and a combination of vanilla and vinegar for that perfect flavor balance, these cookies are a game-changer.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a cookie without the essentials: butter, sugar, and an egg to hold it all together. The mix doesn’t stop there; we’ve got flour, oats to give it that extra chewiness, baking soda, a touch of salt, and a sprinkle of cinnamon for warmth.

The real stars, however, are the chocolate chips and walnuts, adding bits of sweetness and a satisfying crunch.

Tips and Tricks

Chickpea Preparation

For a smoother texture in your cookies, ensure the chickpeas are well-blended. If you don’t have a mini food processor, a blender can work just as well. Blend in short bursts and scrape down the sides to get an even consistency.

Mixing Tips

When adding the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, mix on low speed and stop as soon as you see the flour mostly combined. Overmixing can make your cookies tough instead of tender.

Customizing Flavors

Feel free to experiment with the flavor profile by adding a teaspoon of your favorite spices like nutmeg or ginger. You can also swap out the semisweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate or white chocolate chips for a different taste.

Baking Consistency

To ensure your cookies bake evenly, make sure they are all the same size. Using a cookie scoop can help with this. Flattening the dough slightly before baking will also help them spread evenly.

Storing Cookies

Store your baked cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh for up to a week. You can also freeze the dough balls and bake them directly from the freezer, adding a couple of extra minutes to the baking time.

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Place chickpeas in a mini food processor and process until almost smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Add water, vanilla, and vinegar to the chickpeas. Process again until the mixture is smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer the chickpea mixture to a large bowl.
  • Add butter to the bowl and beat with a mixer at medium speed until the mixture is fluffy and smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Mix in both sugars and continue beating at medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute.
  • Beat in the egg.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture. Beat at low speed until almost fully mixed, leaving some streaks of flour.
  • Add chocolate chips and walnuts, beating on low speed just until they are mixed in.
  • Scoop slightly rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared pan, spacing them 1 inch apart, to make 12 cookies. Flatten the dough slightly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly browned, about 15 to 17 minutes.
  • Repeat the baking process with any remaining dough.
