Chocolate Chickpea Brownies

Step aside, boxed mix, because Chickpea Brownies are in town! These gluten- and dairy-free brownies are the perfect vegan treat. They’re a healthy alternative to regular brownies and are so quick to make!

Prep: 5Cook: 20Total: 25 minutes
Yield 9-12 brownies 1x



  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a food processor, blend chickpeas, nut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla,
  3. Once blended, add in almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Continue to process, scraping down sides as necessary until smooth.
  5. Once creamy and smooth, take off lid (I also remove blade) and stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Do not process the chips.
  7. Pour into greased 8×8 pan and sprinkle with extra chocolate chips if desired. ** see note for extra thickness
  8. Bake for 21-23 minutes.


I’ve also baked them in a loaf pan for extra thick brownies. This took about 30-35 minutes to bake, but they were really good this way!
