Hello all!

Here is an interesting Gluten Free recipe that was shared with me by a long time alumni and constant pair of helping hands at our Roll Up Your Sleeves weekends, Kim Hannum.

I said “interesting” recipe because the replacement for flour is mashed garbanzo beans (chick peas)!!

Here’s what you need…

1 bag of chocolate chips, melted
2 cups garbanzo beans (fresh cooked or canned (and rinsed) is fine)
4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

… and here’s how simple it is…

Melt the chocolate chips and set aside.
Mash the garbanzo beans and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
Mix in the melted chocolate chips.
Pour mixture into cupcake tins lined with paper cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 12 to 17 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Kim!!

Be good…

Chef Jason
