While it may seem odd to include garbanzo beans (chick peas) in brownies, you will not be disappointed with the final product. The protein in the beans balances out the sugar in the brownies so you don’t get a major sugar rush and then crash. They are also gluten free. YUM. Enjoy in moderation
1 ½ best quality semisweet chocolate chips, carob chips or dark chocolate
2 cups canned garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
¾ cup brown rice syrup or ¾ cup agave
½ tsp baking powder
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan melt chocolate on low heat until creamy. In a blender or food processor combine beans and eggs. Add “sugar”, baking powder and chocolate. Process until smooth. Pour batter into a 9” or 8” buttered pan. Bake 45 minutes. They are even great frozen!
