If your anything like me, I am always looking for a Wheat- Free and Gluten-Free

recipe. While browsing thru Allrecipes magazine I came across this recipe, was

delicious! I topped with a little whipped cream and strawberries. 

Chocolate Chickpea Cupcakes  

1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

¼ cup coconut oil

1 (15ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

4 eggs

½ cup sugar ( I used ¼ of splenda) or you can substitue 1/3 cup agave syrup

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
  3. Blend chickpeas, eggs, sugar, baking powder, and vanilla extract together in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add chocolate mixture and blend until smooth. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
