I’m tired of eating hummus ~ Chickpea Brownies
Welcome to my recipe for “I’m tired of eating hummus chickpea brownies”
Yep it’s true while I love me some hummus, there’s only so much I can eat!
And with an abundance of chickpeas in my house I had to come up with another way to use them up!
Originally I named these the Healthy Horsey Brownies because well…. they sort of remind me of horse food!
Despite my first few sentences, if you are still here and willing to try this amazing recipe ~ You will be glad you stayed!

If you do not have dates you can sub in one half cup of peanut butter instead
Applesauce is another good sub for the dates if you want to stay away from nuts as well!
I used sugar free chocolate chunks on top but this is an optional ingredient and you can leave that part off
I thought it may be a good idea to also use a powdered monk fruit sugar as a topping too!
I baked this entire recipe in a 9″ X 13″ cake pan for 15 minutes exactly
If you prefer to make thicker brownies bake all the batter into a 9″ X 9″ cake pan for 25 minutes
