Fudgy Chocolate Chickpea Brownies

Recipe Info

  • Servings: 12
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes prep, 40 minutes to bake


  • 1 ¼ cups 70% cacao chocolate chips
  • 1 19 oz can chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup turbinado sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Powdered sugar and cinnamon or cocoa powder for dusting (2:1 ratio)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 9 inch round baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place the chocolate chips in an oven safe bowl and melt them as the oven preheats (stir them often!).
  3. Put the eggs and the chickpeas in a food processor and process them until smooth.
  4. Add the sugar and baking powder and combine well.
  5. Add the melted chocolate chips (use a spatula and not your finger to get it all in there).
  6. Mix well and then transfer to the baking pan.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean; if it doesn’t, add a few minutes on to the baking time.
  8. Cool on a wire cookie sheet before turning onto a serving plate.
  9. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon/cocoa mixture when the cake is completely cooled.
  10. Invite me over.
