Switch it up this week and along with enjoying creamy hummus with veggies, turn those chickpeas into delicious, decadent brownies to curb those midday sweet cravings! GUARANTEE you will love these – IMO they are better than black bean brownies, but you be the judge…

Dark Chocolate Chickpea Brownies

Ingredients

chickpea brownies

Ingredients for 16 brownies bites

Steps
  1. Set oven to 350F.
  2. Place all of the ingredients – except the dark chocolate chunks – in a food processor or high powered blender.  Once blended until smooth, empty the ingredients into a mixing bowl.  Fold in the dark chocolate chunks.
  3. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and add the batter.  Note: it will be a very thick batter, this is normal.  Evenly spread the batter into the baking dish and if desired, sprinkle sea salt flakes/crystals on top.
  4. Bake for 22 – 25 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  5. Allow the brownies to slightly cool before removing from the pan and slicing.  Serving size will vary – I ate 2 at a time for a total of 8 servings.
