Welcome to my recipe for “I’m tired of eating hummus chickpea brownies”
Yep it’s true while I love me some hummus, there’s only so much I can eat!
And with an abundance of chickpeas in my house I had to come up with another way to use them up!
Originally I named these the Healthy Horsey Brownies because well…. they sort of remind me of horse food!
Despite my first few sentences, if you are still here and willing to try this amazing recipe ~ You will be glad you stayed!
Gluten Free~ Refined Sugar Free~ Nut Free ~ Oil Free ~ Soy Free
But trust me! These are delicious!

If you do not have dates you can sub in one half cup of peanut butter instead
Applesauce is another good sub for the dates if you want to stay away from nuts as well!
I used sugar free chocolate chunks on top but this is an optional ingredient and you can leave that part off
Maybe a good idea can be to use a powdered monk fruit sugar as a topping instead!
I baked this entire recipe in a 9″ X 13″ cake pan for 15 minutes exactly

Chickpea brownies will stay fresh at room temperature for up to 3 days wrapped well in a cool dry area.
For longer storage refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 2 months
I prefer these refrigerated all teh time, they get fudgier when they are cold
This nutritional facts is done using canned chickpeas (which I did not, I boiled mine from dry beans to the sodium on this breakdown is reflecting canned beans)
I also used Sugar Free Syrup so be aware if you use real maple syrup the sugar will be much higher.
Additionally I used monk fruit sugar which is why my sugar is so low (most of the sugar in this recipe comes from the chickpeas)
The serving size is a 9″ x 13″ pan cut into 15 portions
