Chickpea Brownies

DESCRIPTIONChocolate Chickpea Brownies are a healthy alternative to regular brownies and are fudgy, chocolatey, and easy to make. They are made gluten free, dairy free and vegan. INGREDIENTS

  • 1 – 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I like almond or peanut)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips and more for sprinkling on top!


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a food processor, blend chickpeas, nut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla,
  3. Once blended, add in almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Continue to process, scraping down sides as necessary until smooth.
  5. Once creamy and smooth, take off lid (I also remove blade) and stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Do not process the chips.
  7. Pour into greased 8×8 pan and sprinkle with extra chocolate chips if desired. ** see note for extra thickness
  8. Bake for 21-23 minutes.

NOTESI’ve also baked them in a loaf pan for extra thick brownies. This took about 30-35 minutes to bake, but they were really good this way!This article and recipe adapted from this site
