Fudgy Vegan Chickpea Brownies are gluten-free, nut-free, flourless, paleo, refined-sugar-free, and made with simple ingredients. You would never know these super chocolatey brownies were healthy!
Last week I shared these Vegan Black Bean Brownies I made and they are fudgy slices of HEAVEN.
Even though they are tied with my Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies for my personal favorite brownie recipe EVER, the thought of combining chocolate with black beans had some of you questioning my sanity.
I had used chickpeas to make these Healthy Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies before and for whatever reason, you all seemed to be more responsive to the idea of chickpeas in you baked goods as opposed to black beans.
SO, I give you, Fudgy Vegan Chickpea Brownies!!
They are equally delicious as my black bean brownies but use chickpeas as the base.
These brownies are perfect for all lifestyles because they are vegan, dairy-free, paleo, flourless, gluten-free, nut-free, and refined sugar-free! They are also made in your food processor, so they make for easy clean-up.
I have this ninja kitchen set and I am OBSESSED with it. It’s lasted forever and works like a charm.
I’ve also heard great things about this Hamilton Beach food processor as well. It’s much less expensive, but I like that the ninja kitchen has a food processor, blender, and nutri-ninja all in one.
I hope this recipe serves as the stepping stone for those hesitant to adding beans into their dessert. (Yes, I understand how weird that sounds but trust me!)
What makes Vegan Chickpea Brownies healthy?
By replacing the flour with chickpeas you are able to incorporate more protein, fiber, and nutrients.
This recipe is also made using only whole-food ingredients and is refined-sugar-free.
What Ingredients do I need to make Healthy, Vegan Chickpea Brownies?
Chickpeas: One 15 oz can that has been rinsed and drained in a strainer.
Coconut Oil: You can substitute any oil, but I recommend coconut oil. I think it tastes the best!
Maple Syrup: Feel free to replace with honey or agave nectar if you’re not vegan.
Flax Eggs: To make flax eggs, combine 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp water. You will need two flax eggs for this recipe. Simply double the measurements to make two flax eggs.
I have not tried this recipe with regular eggs, but I imagine they would work fine! You could also try subbing your flax eggs for chia eggs, but again, I have only tried flax eggs in these chickpea brownies.
Others: Vanilla extract, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and chocolate chips.
I’m sure peanut butter or white chocolate chips would be amazing as well! If you’re feeling crazy, you could try adding reeses into these chickpea brownies. YUM!
