Flourless Chocolate Cake made with real chocolate and chickpeas! Top off with mixed berries and dust with powdered sugar.


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 c. milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 15 oz. can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 c. Stevia Baking Blend or (3/4 cups sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp, baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Garnish: powdered sugar, mixed berries, and/or chocolate curls


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Grease or spray a 9 inch round prepared cake pan. If you are using a round pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heating them in 30-second increments until the chocolate is completely melted. Set aside and allow to slightly cool.
  3. Drain and thoroughly rinse the chickpeas with cool water. Make sure that you shake all the excess water off the beans. Place the beans in the bowl of a food processor or blender along with the melted chocolate. 
  4. Pulse until the beans and chocolate are well mixed and smooth. One at a time, add the eggs making sure after each one the previous egg is well incorporated.
  5. Once all the eggs are added, add the Stevia, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract, and continue to pulse until you get a well-mixed and smooth batter. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until when a toothpick is inserted it comes out clean.
  6. Allow cooling for about 15 minutes before removing from the pan. Once the cake cools enough to remove from the pan, place on a wire rack to finish cooling. Top off with fresh berries and dust with powdered sugar if desired.
