Ingredients

  • 1 can organic garbanzo beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or but milk of choice
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oat flour {certified gluten-free if needed}
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips {vegan if needed}

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease or butter 8x8 square pan. 
Add 1/2 cup whole rolled oats to NutriBullet or Ninja and process until ground to a fine flour consistency. I used the smoothie attachment to my Ninja and processed approx 30-40 seconds.
  • Add rinsed and drained garbanzo beans to bowl of food processor with almond milk. Blend on high until pureed, this took about 1 minute 15 seconds with my Ninja.
  • Add pureed garbanzo bean and milk mixture to large bowl, add in coconut sugar, vanilla extract, oat flour, and 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, stir to combine.
  • Pour mixture into prepped 8x8 pan and bake in oven for 40 minutes. Remove after 40 minutes, sprinkle with additional 2 tbsp chocolate chips and bake additional 5 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before cutting. Cut into 12 pieces and serve warm - enjoy!
