Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules, optional
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Directions

  1. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, place the beans, egg whites, egg, coffee granules if desired, oil and vanilla in a food processor. Cover and process until smooth.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, baking powder and salt; add to bean mixture. Cover and process until combined. Gradually add the chocolate; process until blended.
  4. Pour batter into a 9-in. square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs (do not overbake). Cool completely on a wire rack.
