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!

clean eating brownie bites

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.

6.  Enjoy!

Let me know if you try these and what you think!!

    I may have to take your word for it on this one. It’s not even the chickpeas….I don’t like eggs!
    I am glad you tried something new though. I recently discovered the goodness of avocados. Yum!

    Do you know of any gluten dairy and sugar free chocolate chips?

    • superfreshbabypants says:

      Sunspire and enjoy life both offer chocolate chip alternatives. Another good option might be cacao chips. I have used those in recipes before although they would not work with the brownies!

        Thank you…I have seen those but they say they have Evaporated Cane Juice…doesn’t that make them NOT sugar free? And why wouldn’t cacao chips work in the brownies? I’m not sure I know exactly what you mean. Thank you!! :)

          Cacao nibs/chips don’t melt so wouldn’t be suitable for brownies. They work really well in other desserts though and smoothies. They are made from the cacao bean and are very different than chocolate chips. You are right, many of the commercial brands are made with evaporated cane juice. We use them though when called for in recipes bc they are dairy and grain free. I will keep my eyes peeled for sugar free too and will definitely post if I find something.

            Ok, thank you so much!! I would really appreciate it!

            I found some! Lily’s Sweets has dark chocolate baking chips that are gluten, dairy and sugar free (made with Stevia). The website is http://www.lilyssweets.com although they don’t show the chips on the site, I did find them today at Whole Foods. This made my day, although they are a bit expensive. The next step is to try making them myself…

            That’s awesome! I will check them out. In the meantime, I have been thinking about biting the bullet and making my own :)

    I just made these and they are delicious. Seriously so tasty. I used caster sugar instead of mapke syrup. Mine took 50 minutes to cook. Will make over and over. So easy.
