Hey here is an awesome baking recipe perfect for the weather now. If you read through this recipe you are going to ask, “Why would I want to make a cake with chickpeas?”
Easy; chickpeas are gluten free, high in fiber and fairly high in protein. For those that are going for a lower / healthier carb lifestyle to promote weight loss or keeping that lean muscle showing, this is a great alternative. It is also AMAZINGLY TASTY!
Now lets talk practical:
blend the mixture in small batches in a food processor to make sure all the chickpeas chop up;
I added 4 scoop of vanilla protein powder to raise the protein content;
I added raisins (or crasins) because I love cinnamon raisin bread;
I also eliminated the oil and put in 1 cup of apple sauce; this also allowed me to lower the sugar to 1 cup.
Please try this recipe and enjoy!
