  • Sheet pan
  • Parchment paper


  • 1 1/3 cups chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter (or substitute your preferred nut or seed butter)

  • Add the maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract, vinegar, and salt to a large mixing bowl, then use a whisk to mix well.
  • Add the chickpea flour, baking soda, and dark chocolate chips, then use your hands to mix and knead until a dough is formed (you can wear disposal gloves if you don’t want to get your hands sticky).

  • Use your fingers to press the dough balls into flat circle shapes.
  • Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 16 minutes.
