Flourless Brownies | Healthy, Gluten-Free Recipe
Brownies will remain my favorite dessert. Period. I just love them, especially when they are fudgy, super chocolatey, and rich. Like these healthy flourless brownies with the most epic sweet potato frosting. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, protein-rich, and easy to make. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare the batter, so there is no excuse to not make this delicious dessert.
I love trying out new brownie recipes. I already shared some of my favorite recipes with you on my blog, like these or these and even . These were a big hit as well! Maybe you have already tried out one or more of these recipes. The healthy no-bake brownies have been remade many times on Instagram and people love them.
The flourless brownies, which I am sharing with you today, contain chickpeas as the main ingredient. Chickpeas are amazing, they are high in protein and contain lots of fiber, minerals, and vitamins. I love using chickpeas in desserts, for example in these .
Grain-Free and Gluten-free recipe
Not only are these flourless brownies gluten-free, but they are also grain-free. Ground almonds, flax seeds, chickpeas, and cocoa powder are some of the ingredients which you need to make these delicious healthy brownies. I also made them once with coconut flour. Both versions are good! Instead of ground almonds, you can use any ground nuts of choice, for example, hazelnuts.
You can make the brownies without frosting and I am sure you will like them. However, to take this dessert to the next level I urge you to make ! It’s made with sweet potatoes, so it’s basically like eating salad, haha. Seriously, in my opinion, the frosting is a must and my boyfriend actually LOVED it!
- Healthier than most other brownies
- Can be made refined sugar-free
- Great for dessert or breakfast
I’ve topped these chickpea brownies with dairy-free mini chocolate chips. This step is optional, of course, but in my opinion, you can never have enough chocolate in your life. So if you have the possibility to get them, then definitely do it!

These flourless brownies with a sweet potato frosting are absolutely delectable. They are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, grain-free, protein-rich, fudgy, chocolatey, and so rich! Made with chickpeas and other wholesome ingredients.
- 2 tbsp ground or ground chia seeds
- Two 15 oz cans drained and rinsed
- 1/2 banana or 1/4 cup applesauce
- Blend the chickpeas with all wet ingredients in a until smooth.
- Add all dry ingredients to the food processor and blend again until the mixture is combined.
- Line a pan with parchment paper or grease it with vegan butter or coconut oil and spoon the batter into it. My baking dish measures 9"x6" .
- Bake in the oven at 355 degrees F for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean . Test after 35 minutes with a toothpick. Don't overcook the brownies! Let them cool completely. They'll still be soft at first but firm up once cooled down. They taste best on the 2nd or 3rd day!
- Check out this recipe to make the ! Top with chocolate chips an enjoy!
- You can use any ground nuts instead of ground almonds. For a nut-free version try ground hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds. If you want to make the brownies with coconut flour, then use only 45 grams and not 90 grams since coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid.
- Any nut butter like peanut butter, cashew butter works fine. For a nut-free version use coconut butter or sunflower seed butter.

These are the fudgeiest brownies ever!!
Thank you, Jess! I wish I could share them with you. ❤️
Could you sub the chickpeas for white beans? Or any other beans you would suggest?
Yes, white beans should work too. I believe black beans would be another great option. ????
These brownies are everything you describe and more. I really enjoyed the brownie on its own but the frosting definitely made it next level ! Thanks for a great recipe can’t wsit for my family to try it, if it lasts that long ????????????
Thank you, Megan! I am so happy that you love my recipe! ????
These brownies look so good! ????
Love the chocolate chips on top.
Thank you very much, Bianca! I hope you will give them a try. ❤️
Love these! I definitely had them for breakfast like you said ????
Wonderful! I am glad you like them, Ruth. ????
What I love is no crazy ingredients and substitutions are listed for nuts and such… My dream recipe as I’m vegan , celiac, and have a tree nut allergy. Not to mention overseas in an area where “exotic” ingredients are just not happening!!! This is a win all around for me, I’m sooo trying this!! ????????
Amazing, Nichole! I hope you will like this recipe! ????
Hi. In which of your books can I find this? I am trying to decide which one to buy ????
Hahaha, thank you so much for your sweet comment! ???? I hope to be able to sell a cookbook in the future.
Would almond pulp from making milk workin this recipe? I’m trying to find a good way to use it!
You can give it a try. But since almond pulp contains almost no fat and this recipe contains no oil, the brownies probably won’t be as rich. Let me know if you try it out though! ????
Could you Sub the chickpeas for pumpkin purée ?
Hey Patty, I think it could work, however, you will most likely need less plant-based milk since pumpkin purée contains more water content than chickpeas. Let me know how it turns out if you give it a try! ????
disappointed. I just made the brownies and really looking forward to trying them. i hadn’t realized I didn’t have any of the frosting ingredients UNTIL THE LAST STEP IN THE DIRECTIONS??? PLEASE PLEASE ADD A NOTE OF THE 2ND RECIPE IN THE INGREDIENTS.
Hi Susan, the frosting is optional and I am sorry I forgot to mention it! I will add a link to the ingredients. I hope you enjoyed the brownies! ????
Can I substitute the coconut sugar for maple syrup or maybe ripe banana?
Hi, if you use maple syrup then you will need to add less plant-based milk! I never tried it so I can’t say how it will turn out. Please report back if you do.
I would not recommend using a banana because it’s not sweet enough.
Hey, these look delicious ???????? any tips on how to make them refined sugar free? Could for example honey be a suitable alternative? Thanks!
