Chickpea Chocolate Chip Brownies

I made these for a client, and then I made some for myself. I just could not resist. These are guilt free and made in just under 30 minutes. Now, that is a treat I can sink my teeth into.

  • 1 1/2 c chickpeas, rinsed, drained
  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 c maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray or lining it with parchment paper.

Combine of the ingredients into a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy.

Stir-ins:

  • 1/4 c dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c pecans

Add the chocolate chips and the pecans to the food processor. Pulse 3-4 times to incorporate the chocolate chips and pecans.

Spread the batter evenly into the baking dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool the brownies in the pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.
