A friend recently introduced me to chocolate chip cookies made with chickpeas. They were so good I decided to try whipping up some brownies made with chickpeas. I also used some ground flax … but no flour. These delicious chickpea brownies are the result!

They are sweet but not too sweet as I like to cut back on the sugar in baking. If you like things a bit sweeter increase the sugar or the Stevia
