Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • ¼ cup coconut oil

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

  • 4 eggs

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.

  2. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.

  3. Blend chickpeas, eggs, sugar, baking powder, and vanilla extract together in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add chocolate mixture and blend until smooth. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 1/3 cup agave syrup for sugar.
