YUM! Is the perfect word for these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chickpea Brownie Bites. They are the perfect combination of Peanut Butter and Chocolate, creamy and crunchy. You cannot go wrong with these. You can change them up a bit with almond or cashew butters and nuts. They make about 30 bites, so there will be plenty to share, if you want.
- 1 1/2 c chickpeas, cooked
- 1/2 c peanut butter
- 1/2 c GF oat flour
- 1/4 c cocoa powder
- 1/2 c Date Paste
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1/2 c dark chocolate chips
- Peanuts to roll the bites into
Combine chickpeas, peanut butter, oat flour, cocoa powder, Date Paste, vanilla and salt into a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Add chocolate chips to the chickpea mixture and pulse the processor to break up the chocolate chips.
Transfer mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for about 15 minutes to firm up dough. The dough will be somewhat soft, even after refrigerating.
Form dough into walnut size bites. Roll the brownie bites into chopped peanuts. Freeze for about 15 minutes to firm up.
Note: I did not give a measurement for the peanuts, because it is a matter of how crunchy a coating you want on the brownie bites. I like to completely cover the brownie bites because the bite itself is very creamy and the nuts give it a nice contrast in texture.
These bites freeze well. You can store them in the freezer or refrigerator in a sealable container.
Share. Eat. Enjoy.
