Today I am sharing my vegan chickpea brownies recipe made with raspberries and yes these brownies are made with canned chickpeas!
Edit june 2020: This is an old recipe but I have revamped it and got new pictures too. I know this chickpea brownies is a favourite for a lot of you so I hope you will still enjoy this vegan chickpea brownie recipe.
These chickpeas brownies are delicious and quite healthy as made with chickpeas which give them a fudge like texture and a boost of protein. I also like using chickpeas in baking because they act as an “egg” in vegan baking. The trick is to use unsalted chickpeas and blend them very well so you dont bite into chickpea skin when you take a bite of your brownie!
This chickpea brownie recipe is also gluten-free. I have used both buckwheat and quinoa flour in the past with success.
I love in this vegan chickpea brownies the added raspberries which give them a sweeter and juicy taste. You could also add a chocolate icing/ frosting or powdered sugar. As always I try to keep my vegan baking creations very healthy and low sugar to be able to share them with my children.
Another good thing about this chickpea brownie recipe is how easy it is to make. You simply add the canned chickpeas in the blender along with the other ingredients and blend. Only need to dirty the 1 food processor/blender and 1 spatula. I love a recipe that doesn’t create too many dirty dishes!
