Chickpeas are known for being protein packed and also for their ability to boost digestion, increase satiety and to stabilise blood sugar levels. For chocolate brownies use a pure cacao and hazelnut spread instead of the peanut butter. This mixture can be rolled into balls to make raw cookie dough balls because they taste so good!


1 400g tin organic chickpeas, drained
150 g organic pure peanut butter
80 g organic pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla paste
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
60 g dairy and sugar free dark choc chips ( or cacao nibs ) Optional


  1. Pre heat oven to 180.c
  2. Place chickpeas into a food processor or thermomix and process then add remaining ingredients (except the choc chips) and mix until smooth and sticky.
  3. Spoon mixture into a small, lined baking tin and bake for around 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Allow to completely cool before slicing.
