Hey everyone and welcome to my Pinterest challenge! Have not had one for a while so I though I will do it today. I picked this recipe for few reasons. One was that I had some chickpea flour left in my cupboard. I was experimenting with different flours to make a gluten free brownie while ago and chickpea did not work quite well there as the flavour of it is quite strong. But I definitely think that chickpea go well in these cookies, although you might find it a bit overpowering. Do you like chickpeas? Now imagine them sweet. Nice thoughts? Then definitely make them! Another reason for going for this challenge is because these cookies seemed so Easter-friendly. I am saying that because Easter do relate with truffles to me. And making these cookies felt a bit like making truffles!
I made a small batch of them as I did not know how successful will they be. Also because I did not have THAT much of chickpea flour! Anyways if you want to make more of them feel free double or triple the recipe.
