Flourless chickpea brownies are fudgy and packed full of delicious chocolate flavor.  These protein-packed brownies make a healthy dessert or snack any time of the day! Chickpeas are a fairly neutral-flavored bean and once combined with all the other ingredients there isn’t a hint of bean anywhere.  These brownies are dense and fudgy, with the perfect amount of sweetness from the maple syrup and dark chocolate.

How to Prepare Flourless Chickpea Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add all ingredients except for the chocolate. Process for 3-5 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl down once or twice until the batter is very smooth.
  3. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the chocolate. Stir the remaining chocolate into the brownie batter.
  4. Scrape the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and use a spatula to smooth the top into an even layer. Sprinkle the reserved chocolate on top.
