Vegan Brownies

These brownies are made in no time, they are flourless, oil free, low in sugar and still so delicious that you’ll wish you would have baked more. They are made with kind of a secret ingredient – chickpeas! Sounds a bit weird, but they give a great texture and an extra portion of protein. Happy baking!


  • 425 g chickpeas in a tin
  • 100 g peanut butter
  • 50 g vegan nutella or dark chocolate spread
  • 60 g agave syrup
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 70 g vegan chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

Method – Preparation 10 Minutes, Baking 20 Minutes
