Healthy Gluten Free Brownies

Healthy Gluten Free Brownies

I have to say I was a little skeptical of this Gluten Free Brownies recipe the first time I was making it. Chickpeas instead of flour? What?  But let me tell you, they are AWESOME. AWESOME. AWESOME!!

They get completely devoured by everyone in my house…especially the kids!  And they had no idea until I told them.


1 1/2 cups of chickpeas or 1 can of chickpeas, drained

4 Egg Whites

4 TBSP of Cocoa Powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup coconut oil (melted) or canola oil

1/3 cup of honey

1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips — you can add more if you’d like. I put closer to 1/2 cup. :-)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Grease a 8 x 8 pan. ( I use coconut oil to do this)

3. Mix all the ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a food processor.

4.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

5. Pour in the greased pan.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    There is something missing in this recipe for gluten free brownies. It lists 4 tablespoons, but not the ingredient? Is it safe to say that it is cocoa powder??

      Oh I am SO embarrassed I missed that!! YES…..4 TBSP of Cocoa Powder. Thanks so much for pointing it out.

    Is there a reason you only use egg whites? Is it just to make them healthier? Or does leaving out the yolks make them turn out better? I hate wasting the egg yolks. Either way, I am totally going to try these!

    Those look so yummy! I’m slowly transitioning away from wheat and have been trying new gluten free recipes (some successful some not so successful!). I’ll be adding these to my list of things to try. Love the beans – great way to add extra fiber.

    These were amazing. I did add a thin layer of homemade chocolate frosting. My GF and non GF friends LOVED them! Will make a lot!

    What can you use to substitute eggs in any gluten free recipes. My grandson is gluten free and also allergic to eggs too.


  7. Holly says

    You can also use ground flaxseed in place of eggs. You mix it with water and let it thicken. You can but ground flaxseed at costco or several other stores or possibly make your own. If you buy it, most packages will have instructions for how much to use per egg when using as a substitute.

    I was a bit skeptical about chickpeas tasting good in a chocolate brown. Proved wrong 100%. Super moist. And true test was my chocoholic daughter whom declared these amazing. And she has the luxury of being able to eat brownies made with wheat.
