Garbanzo Bean Brownies

Fudgey brownies with a secret ingredient

We’re all looking to get a little healthier but that doesn’t mean we have to (or want to!) give up dessert. All it takes is recipes like this one that incorporate healthy ingredients in creative ways so you never know they’re in there. And, you don’t have to feel bad about having more than 1! Instead of flour, Julia uses garbanzo beans to give the brownies a thick, dense, and creamy fudge-like consistency. The double dose of dark chocolate and cacao powder will satisfy even the biggest chocoholic. Our favorite part though, is that when you use Julia’s technique of making the batter in a blender, these delicious gluten-free brownies come together in a jiffy.
