Actually chickpea is a versatile ingredient and makes delicious savory snacks, lip-smacking curries, finger-licking desserts and sweets, and delectable cookies. You already know of besan nankhatai. Or for that matter besan cornflakes nankhatai, which got viral in my food group and across many other groups. I must say it has a unique flavor.

Those who have tried the besan nankhatai with cornflakes once have done it an umpteen number of times.


This time even I wanted to recreate the same, but due to power outage, I was not able to grind cornflakes, so dropped the idea of including them to the recipe. So this gave me a chickpea flour cookies vegan recipe that I am in love with. I have shared the vegan options as well. The gluten free cookie recipe is shared below.
