Rich, fudgy brownies with a swirl of almond butter. These vegan almond butter swirl brownies are made with just seven healthy ingredients and you’d never know they’re gluten-free and naturally sweetened! The brownies start with chickpeas. Just one can blended up with some almond milk gives a super rich and fudgy base texture to the brownies.

Almond Butter Swirl Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup date paste (blend 16 Medjool dates with 1 cup hot water)
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened, natural nut butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend the chickpeas and almond milk until totally smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the chickpea puree and date paste.
  4. Add the buckwheat flour and cocoa powder and stir until everything is totally combined.
  5. Add the chocolate chips and stir.
  6. Pour the batter into a nonstick or sprayed square pan.
  7. Drop 2-3 tablespoons of nut butter on top of the batter and gently swirl with a toothpick or a knife.
  8. Bake the brownies for 40 minutes until they’re slightly firm to the touch. They will firm up a lot as they cool, so don’t over bake.

nonstick pans are toxic. Google \"Dupont vs the world\" a little vegan butter or coconut oil greases a regular pan just fine
