These chickpea cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 5-7 days. They can also be frozen for 3-6 months. Place the cookies in a Ziploc bag, making sure they are tightly sealed, before placing them in the freezer.
Frozen cookies can be thawed at room temperature for one to two hours. You can also thaw them overnight in the fridge as well to thaw. If desired, you may warm the cookies up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
If your cookies come out puffy, you can use a spatula to flatten them out while they are still warm. Puffy cookies will have a more cake-like texture.
If you like nuts, you can add chopped walnuts or pecans. You can also add chocolate chunks in addition to chocolate chips as well. If desired, you may also leave out the rolled oats.
