Chickpea Chocolate Cake

This sounds crazy, I know, but it makes a really good chocolate cake – It’s almost a cross between a cake and a brownie.

Chickpea Chocolate CakeThe bonus here is that it’s high in protein (from the eggs and the ISOFLEX), high in fibre (from the chickpeas) and it’s gluten free (as long as your baking powder doesn’t have gluten in it). We’ve even gone a step further and used some honey (a more natural sweetener) to replace part of the traditional sweetener.

 

Ingredients

We’ve used honey and sugar here, you can use all sugar if you want, it’s up to you.
