Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend the chickpeas and almond milk until totally smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the chickpea puree, date paste, and oat flour until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the beet juice and stir (feel free to use less if you aren't worried about the color!).
