Rustic Chocolate Chickpea Cupcakes


Looking for a recipe for chocolate cake that uses no sugar and no flour? Well here it is! There is no way anyone would guess that these were made using chickpeas, I promise. They are chocolatety, spongey and moreish, you’ll definitely want more than one!

Yields: 12 cupcakes

  • 1 can chickpeas (thoroughly rinsed)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup dates (around 12)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa or raw cacao
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 175c.

Place all ingredients into a blender until mixture becomes smooth. Spoon cake batter into muffin tray. ( I use a silicon muffin tray, as you don’t need to oil it and afterwards they slip right out!) Bake for around 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean.

Cool and enjoy!
