Delicious cookies that are kind to your belly do not have to have 1000 ingredients in them. Keep it simple. These cookies are not only gluten free, higher in protein, naturally sweetened.. and they are also super delicious!!! Seriously… they melt in your mouth, are slightly chewy, slightly hard. You can pack them with chocolate chips, nuts, coconut or raisins!  Either way they will make your day.

2 cups chickpea flour

1/2 cup add ins of choice – chocolate chips, nuts, or raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large bowl add chickpea flour, salt, baking soda. Mix it together.
  3. Add vanilla,coconut oil (melted), Maple Syrup. If it is a little dry, add a bit more melted oil, syrup or water.
  4. Stir in add ins of choice.
  5. Roll into balls and place evenly on a pan with parchment paper (or grease your pan)

Saving Money:

I buy all these ingredients in bulk, often when they are on sale- to have on hand for when I need it. The add-ins are extra, helps make it super delicious- however they are not necessary. Use whatever sugar and flour you have on hand…although I encourage when you run out of that to buy a higher quality and more wholesome sugar and flour source.

Quick Tips & Tools:

1 large baking pan, parchment paper, bowl, spatula.

Saving Time:

Time 2 or 3 this recipe. Roll them all into balls and store in plastic containers in rows with parchment paper to keep from sticking. When you want cookies, take a few frozen balls out, pop them in preheated oven and enjoy freshly baked cookies!!
