  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Blend garbanzo beans in a food processor until chopped into very small pieces; transfer to a large bowl and add peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir mixture until ingredients are incorporated into a dough-like substance. Fold chocolate chips, oats, flaxseed meal, and brewer's yeast into the bean mixture.
  3. Drop rounded spoonfuls of the 'dough' onto prepared sheet. Flatten cookies somewhat with the back of a spoon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Some vegans don't consider sugar or Splenda(R) to be truly vegan. You can sub 1/4 cup raw honey or molasses for sweetness instead of sugar.
  • You can also sub 1/2 cup organic coconut oil or any nut butter.
  • Flaxseed and brewer's yeast are what make these lactation cookies in addition to the oats.
  • For a vegan recipe, sub raisins for chocolate chips.
