- 15 oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 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 1/4 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 1/2 inch squares.
