Flourless Choco Chip Mini Brownies (GF and Vegan too)

This was the first dish that got (re)made for the Blogging Marathon. The first time, it vanished within minutes and the kids were keen that I bake it again. It was also one of the first bakes I made when I ventured into GF / Flourless Baking. Dana's food blog opened up a huge window of learning for Vegan and GF Baking (and food in general for me), from where this bake is adapted. I halved the recipe, subbing the black bean with........

Well, you need to read the recipe fully to know my GF base. I bet one would be surprised how its lent to a moist, subtly bitter yet yummy chocolatey mini brownie here on the blog.. Let's get to the recipe now..

Flourless Choco Chip Mini Brownies - GF and Vegan

Adapted from here

Prep time (Including soaking of 10 hours) - 20 mins , Baking time - 20 ~24 mins , Makes - 16 ~22 mini brownies

You would need:
  • Black Channa (black chickpeas) - 1 cup
  • Flax egg - 1 (8 g flax seed meal whisked in 3 TBSP / 45 ml water)
  • Olive Oil - 2 TBSP
  • Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder - 2/3 cup less 2 tsp
  • Sea salt - 1/8 tsp
  • Coconut Sugar - Heaped 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP
  • Baking Powder - 3/4 tsp
  • Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp

Toppings:
  • Crushed Walnuts, Choco chip - as required

Method:
  1. Soak the Channa / Chickpeas overnight or for minimum 8~10 hours {I dont like using or buying canned chickpeas, so if you do canned stuff, please rinse and drain all the liquid out}. 
  2. If using raw chickpeas, pressure cook till soft but not mushy, drain and set aside.
  3. Prepare the flax egg whisking the flax meal in warm water and set aside for 10-15 mins.
  4. Pre heat oven to 165C (the temp that worked for me depending on this quantity).  Grease the mini muffin moulds or whatever pan you are using 
  5. In a blender, add the cooked chickpeas and rest of the ingredients except the topping, scraping down as you stop for a few seconds. 
  6. Slowly spoon the mixture into the greased moulds, topping with walnuts and / or chocochips as desired.
  7. Bake for 22~25 mins, mine were done in 18+4 = 22 mins (baking temperature varies from oven to oven)

  4. They look just like brownies made with flour. They must taste great as they are very popular on vegan blogs. Brown chickpeas is a nice variation to black beans.

  7. Oh, that is such an interesting gluten free brownie recipe. Using black chana is a great idea. I've seen black bean brownies, so black chana must be a good Indian substitute for it. Protein packed and guilt free chocolaty treat.
