  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Process the chickpeas, coconut oil, egg and vanilla in a large processor until smooth.

  • Add in the coconut sugar, flax, flour, salt, baking soda and vinegar and blend until until a smooth batter is formed.

  • Add in the dark chocolate chips and pulse briefly until incorporated.

  • Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto a lined baking sheet and use wet fingers to gently flatten each scoop

  • Bake about 15 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
