  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add half the beans, shallot and garlic into a food processor and pulse until mixture is coming together, 10 – 15 pulses.Add the buffalo sauce and spices and process again until smooth.
  •  Pulse in the remaining beans, the quinoa, and chickpea flour until just combined. Remove lid and stir together to form a dough.
