Garbanzo bean flour made its way back into my kitchen. I’ve made a few recipes that haven’t made it onto the blog yet, but there are for sure more coming! I love that GB flour is actually a legume and not a grain. 6g of protein and 5g of fiber per serving (1/4 cup).
It works great as a replacement of whole wheat or all-purpose flour AND it’s gluten free. Win-Win situation in my mind What I also love is that it is 1 ingredient: ground garbanzo beans. I use the Bob’s Red Mill variety which you can find at Whole Foods and many local grocery stores.
This was my first time making homemade brownies. And I actually got the idea to make Garbanzo Bean Brownies from The Roasted Root Blog. I changed things up because she used actual garbanzo beans, where as I used ground flour.

Is this real life?
If you are a mega sweet-tooth person, feel free to add stevia or more cane sugar. I love the taste of dark chocolate, so a little sweet is just perfect for me.
Plus some peanut butter.
PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA! I had such a great weekend with you here in Minneapolis and I am so sad you see you go home
