Yields1 Serving
Prep Time7 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time27 mins

 I can (400g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
 1/2 cup (125g) peanut butter (I use organic crunchy peanut butter)
 1/3 cup (110g) maple syrup
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
 50grams dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped to small chunks
 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao nibs, for sprinkling (if desired)

1

Preheat oven to 170 degrees C and line a 20cm square baking tin with nonstick paper

2

Add all of the ingredients apart from the chocolate to a food processor and process until smooth (3-4 minutes). The mixture will be thick and sticky.

3

Fold in your chopped chocolate

4

Spread batter evenly into your tin and if you choose, sprinkle the top with your cacao nibs. These give a nice crunch once baked and add an extra texture.

5

Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes, or til a skewer comes out clean.

6

Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 16 squares once cool.
