  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, or more to taste
  • 2 cups chickpea flour

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts, or to taste (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously grease 2 baking sheets.
  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.
  3. Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Roll cookie dough into heaping tablespoon-sized balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheets.
