I’ve a feeling we’re not in grandma’s kitchen anymore. Gram’s chocolate chip cookies can’t be beat, but these days you’re hooked on more complex flavors. Pumpkin, coconut oil and garbanzo flour (oh my!) replace conventional ingredients in this vegan and gluten-free recipe, and they add a boost of nutrients and savory sweetness to the classic. Luckily, you don’t have to look over the rainbow to find cookies this good!
