As a pastry chef I am always interested in trying new recipes as most of my clients and customers love vegan, raw and gluten-free treats. And this is the BEST BROWNIE I ever made. And its vegan. And gluten free. And soy free. Oh, and its made out of CHICKPEAS!!! Crazy, I know! You need to try this!
dark chocolate chips or 7 oz broken into pieces
espresso or 1 Tbsp instant (grain) coffee dissolved with 5 Tbsp hot water
cooked and drained chickpeas
almond milk (or any other dairy-/soy free milk
raw cacao or regular cocoa powder
freshly ground almonds/almond meal
honey or maple syrup
arrowroot powder or tapioca/potato starch
chipotle, cayenne or chili powder
In This Recipe
Pre-heat oven to 180°C
Line a square baking tin with parchment paper
In a bowl over a pot of simmering water melt the chocolate with the coconut oil
Turn off heat and stir in the coffee until emulsified.
In a food processor combine the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.
Add the melted chocolate and mix again.
Pour into tin and bake for 25 – 30 min (do not overbake!, it should be still a little wet inside when you check with your knife or metal skewer)
Let cool, cut into squares and decorate with sliced almonds.
