These gluten-free flourless brownies are a rich, dense, and decadent chocolate treat. But I love that they are made from chickpeas and cashews, so they are full of fiber, healthy fats and protein!

Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:25 minutes
Total Time:35 minutes
1 15 ounce can chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
1 cup raw, unsalted cashews (soaked for 1 hour in warm water discard the water after done soaking)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup pure maple syrup (agave or honey can be substituted)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp Real Salt
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, into a blender
Blend until a batter forms (the batter will be thick)
Stir in chocolate chips
Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Do not over cook, it will dry out the brownies
Allow to cool 20 minutes before cutting and serving
If you have a high speed blender (i.e. Blendtec or Vitamix) you can skip soaking the cashews. But if you do, you will need to add a little water to the blender to make up for the amount of water the cashews soak up soaking.
