Flourless Chocolate-Chickpea Brownies - FIXATE style

My three "boys" (my two sons and my husband) LOVE brownies. For their birthdays, they all rather have a whole pan of brownies, rather than cake.  So, for at least a year, I've been search for a brownie recipe that they will eat and enjoy, but not filled with junk and preservatives!

I've made about 10 pans of different clean-eating brownie recipes: some had spinach in them, some were gluten free and made with coconut flour, some came out like a pan of flat, tasteless cardboard, some had a grainy texture, and some had a chewy, almost gummy-like texture.  In other words, they did not pass the kid-taste test, they did not get two thumbs up!!

Until these!!!

I was a bit skeptical, as the main ingredient is chickpeas, but I made them anyway, because so far, of all the FIXATE recipes I've tried, the family loved them all! They were chocolaty, fudgy, and perfect for my boys!

Autumn Calabrese, the creator of 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme, wrote a cookbook called FIXATE, with tons of clean eating recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, and even Shakeology! The greatest feature of this cookbook: it gives the container equivalents for each recipe!!!

Here is the FIXATE recipe for brownies:

Container equivalent:  1 yellow


INGREDIENTS
Non-stick cooking spray
1 (15 oz) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup organic, unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder, gluten-free
