Why I Love This Recipe

Ever since I made these chickpea chocolate chip cookies I’ve been fascinated with using beans in baking! I made these black bean brownie bites and they’re so tasty, but I wanted to make a pan of classic brownies, too. They’re easy to make and they turned out just as fudgy as I hoped.

These are also a great option if you’re vegan or gluten-free, because they’re flourless and they don’t require any eggs or butter. Whether you’re looking for an allergy-friendly treat or you’re in the mood for a dessert that tastes rich and delicious, but also gives you some protein and fiber, these brownies are the answer!

chickpea brownie ingredients

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Chickpeas– Reserve 2 tablespoons of the liquid in the can, then rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  • Coconut oil– Be sure the coconut oil is melted before adding.
  • Cocoa powder– This is what gives these brownies the classic chocolate flavor.
  • Vanilla– Vanilla extract helps add a sweet flavor.
  • Peanut butter– I recommend no-stir creamy peanut butter.
  • Brown sugar– You can use brown sugar or coconut sugar. Firmly pack the sugar when measuring.
  • Baking powder– Baking powder adds lift to the brownies.
  • Salt– A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor.
  • Chocolate chips– I used mini chocolate chips but any chocolate chips are fine.
