I know. They sound disgusting. Why would anyone want chocolate chickpeas? That’s just weird. Here’s the thing though, they really aren’t disgusting. They actually taste like a dense chocolate sponge cake more than brownie bites but I like to call them brownie bites so there you have it. These are rich and delicious. Sweet and nutritious. Consider yourself lucky to have found the recipe!
What you’ll need:
1.5 cups dairy free, grain free chocolate chips
4 organic large eggs
15 oz organic chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
1/2 tsp baking powder
1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
2. Melt chocolate chips in double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, nest two sauce pans on the stove with enough water in the larger pan to reach about halfway up the side of the smaller pan. Pour chips in the smaller sauce pan and simmer the water. Stir frequently as these chips will melt quickly!
3. Process beans and eggs in blender or food processor until smooth. Add melted chocolate, maple syrup and baking powder. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour batter into lightly greased 8×8 pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test. Allow to cool.
5. Cut into brownie sized bites.
