Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

I must admit I was a little bit concerned when I made these cookies.  The dough is very sticky and tacky.  I wasn't sure how the end product was going to turn out.

I needn't have worried.  They baked up perfectly and taste even better than they look.  I decided to make these cookies as I had some chickpea flour left in my cupboard from when I made Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters.  I knew that if I didn't find a recipe that specifically called for chickpea flour it would get shoved to the back of the cupboard, never to be seen again.

A google search led me to this recipe by Ambitious Kitchen.  I modified it slightly, using melted butter instead of coconut oil, as that was what I had in my kitchen.  I am so glad I did.  I especially like that this recipe comes together quickly and makes a small batch.  I ended up with 18 cookies using my scoop.  The recipe said to use a medium scoop for 12 cookies.
