  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.

Made these for my kids and they LOVED THEM!!!! kids are the harshest critics. These are delish! They taste better when baked until the edges get a little crispy and they are completely cooled.

I am so surprised at how good these taste. I could never get my family to eat chickpeas.. ..ever!! They were begging for more. I made mini muffins and baked them for 10 minutes. They did have a ...

These are my no-guilt, good-for-me dessert and they are the BEST! Soooo easy, and (since I omit the unnecessary sweetener/sugar) healthy as a protein source! They freeze like a dream, and the ...
