These brownies are healthy, packed full of protein and take minutes to prepare and make!

1 can of chickpeas (400g) - drained, rinsed and dried
1/4 cup cocoa/cacao powder
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg white
1/4 cup milk (I used alpro hazelnut)
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Whizz all the ingredients, minus the peanut butter, up in a food processor until smooth. Pour the mixture into a tray lined with parchment paper and smooth out. Heat the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds, so that it goes a little runny. Drizzle it over the brownie mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes.

These brownies are best straight out of the oven, but you can store them in an airtight container for a few days, and simply warm them up in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.


  1. These look so so good Sophie, and the fact they're healthy makes it even better! x

  2. Ooooooooh. Definitely going to make these! x

  3. These look so good! I am going to have to try these, especially with such natural ingredients as I'm trying to give up refined sugar.
    Thanks for sharing!
