Chickpeas are always thought of as the ingredient required to make hummus and a bunch of other healthy foods. What you probably don’t know, is that chickpeas can help you create some of your most craveable foods as well without anyone even noticing. It’s crazy that chickpeas, being such a versatile food, are not incorporated into baking and cooking more often. Check out these recipes to see how you can make the most of your can of chickpeas!

1. Flourless Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies

Ever had a blondie, that is the opposite of a brownie? Well, this is it! Packed with doughy flavor and some chocolate chips, this square will make your tastebuds very happy.

2. Quinoa Brownies with Cookie Dough Frosting

You would have no idea that there are quinoa and chickpeas in this rich and creamy dessert. With all the extra protein, you’ll feel re-energized from your dessert.

3. Healthy No Cook Peanut Butter Fudge

Need to make a dessert in a hurry? This fudge doesn’t require any heat and is oozing with nutty flavor.

6. Chocolate Chickpea Bark

This may look weird to you, but think about how amazing combining salty and sweet is! Pull this out to munch on when you have a sweet craving.

7. Hummus Mashed Potatoes

You won’t believe how thick and creamy these mashed potatoes are when you take your first bite. While potatoes can be bland, this mashed masterpiece is anything but!

8. Chocolate Dessert Hummus

Hummus has forever been a protein-rich dip for your veggies and chips, a spread on your greek wraps and much more. It’s a very simple blend of chickpeas, oils, and seasoning to make it perfect. So, what exactly is dessert hummus? All the same things! Except, instead of the savory seasonings and oils, you add in sweet and decadent options to make a dessert dip that will be gone before you know it.

9. Sloppy Chicks

Replace Joe with a Chick. Or a bunch of chicks. This veggie twist on a sloppy classic will please adults and children alike.

11. Ultra Fluffy Vanilla Pumpkin Chickpea Pancakes

12. Cake Batter Dessert Hummus

We love dessert hummus! This sweet protein-packed treat is gracing the aisles of grocery stores, but with a hefty price tag! Next time you’re there, put it back on the shelf and grab a few inexpensive ingredients to make it at home instead. We love the chocolate version, but there’s perhaps no better kind than funfetti cake batter!
