Preheat oven to 190 C (350 F).
Cream together brown sugar and butter in a mixing bowl. Add eggs and molasses.
Combine cinnamon, cloves, ginger, baking soda and flours. Add to wet ingredients about one half at a time. Mix thoroughly after each addition.
Place sugar in a shallow dish. Roll dough into ½ inch (1 cm) balls, roll each ball in the white sugar and then place 2 inches (5 cm) apart on an parchment lined cookie sheet. Dough will spread while cooking. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Cool on a baking rack and store in a sealed container. Cookies freeze well.
To make your own split pea or chickpea flour grind dry split peas or chickpeas in a spice grinder or flour mill until a fine powder is formed. Use a fine sieve to sift out any larger particles.
