ChickpeaLoaf1

Yay for Friday! As promised, I am sharing my chocolate chip chickpea bread today which I teased last week on Instagram.

Since I discovered baking with chickpeas, it has completely changed the way I approach dessert.

I LOVE adding chickpeas to my baked goods like breads, cookies, blondies, you name it. Something about adding the beans themselves versus the flour, adds enough moisture that you don’t even realize that fat is missing from the recipe.

While it can be tricky to work with, I have only experimented with it a handful of times.

Today I am sharing my chocolate chip chickpea bread I made for my family over the holidays. I love having healthy dessert options on hand at all times during the holidays. This one does have fat (peanut butter but you can use any nut butter). Nut butter, unlike regular butter has mono and polyunsaturated fats which are heart healthy versus saturated fat primarily found in the latter.

Don’t forget to share your chickpea desserts with me on Instagram!
