Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas
  • cup creamy natural peanut butter just peanuts + salt
  • cup almond flour can sub oat flour
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch
  • cup maple syrup
  • cup sugar of choice brown, coconut, white etc
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • optional: 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas really well and add to a food processor.
  • Add all remaining ingredients aside from the chocolate chips and process until smooth.
  • Pulse in the chocolate chips just to combine, or stir in with a spoon.
  • Transfer to the lined baking pan and spread until smooth on top. It can be sticky, so it helps to spray a rubber spatula with oil before spreading.
  • Sprinkle on a few more chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 28-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. if you like a more gooey center, bake for less time.
  • Let cool completely before slicing or they will crumble easily. I suggest leaving in the pan for about 20 minutes, then lifting them out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Notes

You can any nut butter in place of peanut butter. Cashew and almond will work best flavorwise!
