  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup nut or seed butter
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375F.  Spray an 8X8" baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Set aside 2 tablespoons of the chocolate.  Stir the remaining chocolate into the brownie batter.
  • 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.
  • Bake for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with just a few crumbs attached.  Allow to cool to room temperature before cutting.  Enjoy!
