The Chocolate meets the Chickpeas. Who said that vegan cakes aren’t good enough?

Today we present the amazing Chocolate Chickpea Cake.

The Chocolate Chickpea Cake does not require any butter or oil, taking its place between the ultimate Vegan recipes. Chickpeas also will serve as flour, making them completely gluten-free! And let’s not forget that it’s super easy and fast, taking no more than one hour from start to finish.


  • 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 can (450 grams) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • powdered sugar
  • your favorite berries


Time for the real action:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray some canola oil in a 9-inch round cake pan and set it aside.
  2. Blend the eggs and chickpeas in a food processor. Add sugar, baking powder and make sure that they are perfectly incorporated, we suggest using the pulse for a better result. Pour in melted chocolate and process until combined, scraping down the sides to make sure thoroughly mixed. Finally pour batter into prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, you can use a toothpick to check if it’s ready too: insert it in the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean you’re ready to go! Take your creation out of the oven and let it cool down for 15/20 minutes. Now just sprinkle with icing sugar and your berries (we love strawberries!)
  4. Now you can enjoy this fudge goodness with the people you care about the most!
We hope you will love this recipe as much as we! A big shoutout to Alida’s Kitchen for this amazing inspiration too!
