Sugar-Free Chickpea Brownies

Chickpeas… yuck! Right? Wrong!! I am obsessed with baking cookies, brownies, etc with chickpeas because not only do you eliminate a lot of those pesky carbs, but they will also be protein-rich!

These taste like amazing fudgy brownies, you wouldn’t even know there were chickpeas in them if I didn’t tell you (I have tested and confirmed this theory).

*If you go through sweet like a crazy person (like me), you can double this recipe and make it in a 13×9 in pan! Hope you guys love this super easy, healthy & delicious recipe as much as I do!


  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I like almond butter)
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup almond flower
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes for sprinkling on top


  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.

  8. Bake for 21-23 minutes.
