Vegan Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies – My #1 Go To Cookie!

When your child ask for you to make cookies – You make cookies!

Yeah, cause I like cookies too! Especially when they are hot out of the oven.  Delish!  This is my # 1 go to cookie recipe and hits the spot when I’m having hardcore hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookies cravings!

Oh, the amazing smell of cookies cooking in the house.  Is there a better smell?  I have childhood flash backs of my dad baking cookies in the evening….just waiting for that gooey chocolate pouring from the hot cookie.  OMG, yes please!

Chickpea Flour…aka Garbanzo Bean Flour

I have made this recipe using only Chickpea Flour and some may find the taste to be a little different.  My son never seems to mind, but I myself do like using half and half – 1/2 Chickpea Flour and 1/2 All Purpose Flour.

Don’t be afraid to play around with other types of flours and combos.  You might come up with the next best thing!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.


Cream together coconut oil, apple sauce and brown sugar together.


Add the almond milk and vanilla.


In a separate bowl mix together the chickpea flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.


Combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Slowly stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.


Using a table spoon, drop spoonful of dough onto cookie sheet, leaving room per cookie so they can spread when cooking.

The chickpea flour can be replaced by using All Purpose Flour. Using other types of flour may change the look of the cookie.

    I made your cookies tonight! The walnut chickpea flour ones. They are delicious. I baked them for only 10 minutes bc wanted a chewy cookie and used dark mini cacao morsels. I sprinkled a little coconut sugar on top as soon as I pulled them out of oven. Really a sweet soft tasty cookie. I was surprised. Sweet in a healthy way.
