1.5 cups Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo & Fava Flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp xanthum gum
1 cup spectrum shortening
1.5 cups dark brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.)Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup finely ground cashews (optional)
Mix the garbanzo and fava bean flour, baking soda and salt together.
Cream the shortening and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined well.
Add flour mixture to the butter/shortening egg mixture and mix well.
Add 1/2 cup of finely ground cashews. I grind this in a old coffee grinder. Shaking the coffee grinder while grinding seems to work best.
Stir in Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips.
Use a mini ice cream scoop to scoop 2 Tablespoons of batter into ball on sheet. Bake in 375º oven for 9-11 minutes until light brown. Careful if you are using nuts because they go from cooked to brown pretty easily. Less done cookies will be soft and chewy. More done cookies will be crunchy.
