Blend garbanzo beans in a food processor until chopped into very small pieces; transfer to a large bowl and add peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir mixture until ingredients are incorporated into a dough-like substance. Fold chocolate chips, oats, flaxseed meal, and brewer's yeast into the bean mixture.

Drop rounded spoonfuls of the 'dough' onto prepared sheet. Flatten cookies somewhat with the back of a spoon.

Bake in preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes.
