I have never tried chickpeas, so when I opened up the can of chickpeas I was a little concerned. I did not like how it smelled. I pressed on with the recipe and I was glad when these turned out tasty. I would consider exploring more options using chickpeas in baking.
The next one I am going to try is this one I found on You Tube. If you want a vegan option, you might want to try this one.
So don't be afraid to try chickpeas in your baking.
Here is the recipe I tried from My Fitness Pal
- 4 tablespoons (54g) unsalted butter
- 1 15-ounce (425g) can low-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2/3 cup (125g) light brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup (31g) all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (54g) pecans, toasted and chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F (180ºC). Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Continue cooking butter 3–5 minutes or until browned with a very nutty fragrance.
In the bowl of a food processor, puree chickpeas on high speed until almost smooth, stopping to scrape the sides of bowl as needed. Add browned butter and vanilla; process until smooth. Add eggs; pulse 3–4 times to combine. Add sugar, flour, baking soda and salt; pulse 4–5 times to combine. Add pecans; pulse once or twice just to combine.
Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake for 28–30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
