  • 15 oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Add chickpeas, nut butter, cocoa powder, maple syrup, coconut sugar, almond flour, vanilla extract, baking powder and salt in a food processor.
  • Process in food processor until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down to combine completely. Note: If you'd like to add chocolate chips to the batter add about half of the ¼ cup of chocolate chips at this time. Pulse 2 or three times to combine. Don't over pulse or the chocolate chips will be broken into smaller pieces.
  • Line 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Scoop batter out of food processor. It will be a thick consistency. Evenly spread the batter over the baking pan using a spatula. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Bake in preheated oven at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Allow to cool completely in pan. When cool, gently pull sides of parchment paper to remove the brownies from the pan. Cut into about 2 ½ inch squares.
