This is probably the strangest recipe I have ever made! Lacey went to a sleepover at a friend’s house awhile back and came home the next day telling me about this awesome bean cake they had for dessert after dinner. What in the world is a bean cake?! My friend is a great cook so I was anxious to check out the recipe.
Even though I had never tried them, I just knew that I didn’t like chickpeas. I knew they were healthy and full of protein but I wasn’t trying them….until now! I was still skeptical and reluctant but my curiousity won. This recipe is gluten free, contains no flour, oil or butter.
I will admit that the whole time I made this recipe I was convinced it would end up in the trash and I was wasting my time and money. Once Adam gained his appetite back after surgery, I decided one evening to make this special dessert. It contains very few ingredients and is quick and easy to make. The results was a very rich, moist and chocolate brownie type cake that was delicious! It makes a small 9 inch cake and we topped it with vanilla bean ice cream and chocolate syrup. Very weird but very yummy! Please let me know if you give it a try.
