Vegan Chickpea Brownies



Who doesn't love a gooey, chocolate brownie?!

I mean, there are a few aliens out there, but the majority of humans definitely do.

This recipe took me a few different attempts to perfect, but, totally worth it...they're gooey, super yummy, AND...healthy!?

Vegan, Gluten Free, & No added sugars

Ingredients:

  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup natural nut butter

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 2 tbsp dairy-free dark chocolate chips, divided

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and set aside a nonstick or greased 8x8 baking pan.

  2. Add the chickpeas, maple syrup, nut butter, applesauce, and vanilla extract to a food processor. Process until fully combined.

  3. Then add the coconut flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and cinnamon to the mixture and begin to process again. *Scrape the sides of the processor with a spatula as needed*

  4. Process until smooth, then remove the lid and blade, and mix in 1 tbsp of chocolate chips, stirring them throughout the mixture.

  5. Pour the brownie mixture into the 8x8 pan and evenly place the remaining chocolate chips on top of the brownie mix. *So you can get that sexy, bakery aesthetic*

  6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the brownies pass the 'fork test' and are fully baked through. Let them cool for 20-30 minutes, cut into 9 even brownies, & enjoy!
