Equipment

Ingredients

  • 50 g Porridge Oats
  • 100 g Nut Butter (peanut/almond/cashew)
  • 1 tin Chickpeas (drained)
  • 50 g Cocoa Powder
  • 100 g Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 3-4 tbsp Milk (dairy or plant)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • Dark choc chips/coconut/nuts (optional toppings)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180º / gas mark 4
  • Put the oats into your food processor and blitz to a fine powder
  • Add the chickpeas to the food processor and blitz again
  • Add all the other ingredients except the milk and blitz until a batter is formed
  • If the batter is a little dry add some milk little by little. You are aiming for a thick cake batter.
  • Scrape the mixture into a lined baking tin and spread evenly
  • Top with dark chocolate chips/walnuts/coconut or anything else you fancy.
  • Pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes until crunchy on top.

Notes

Chickpeas make these brownies incredibly moist whilst boosting the fibre and protein content and oats add further fibre and immune system priming beta-glucans.
