Gooey Chickpea Brownies

11:02 AM

I am not a baker. Let me tell you that off the bat. I am a horrible baker.

Come Christmas time when everyone is making cookies and baked goods for people, I feel so much pressure to be like everyone else though my attempts at baking something delicious fails. Always.
I will never be the mom that gets asked to bake cookies for the PTA or bake sale. End of story.

On one rare occasion I decided to try this recipe I found on pinterest (surprise surprise). It is probably one of the few recipes that actually worked out and I could bake successfully.

Then add your egg and Almond or Peanut butter (I used PB) and pulse for a few more seconds.

Transfer to a bowl and add the oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar. It will seem thick but keep stirring  It will smooth out.

Transfer to a 9x9 (or a 9x13 like me) baking dish and cook for 45-55 minuets.

AND being the AMAZING blogger that I am. I got caught up with other things and forgot to take a picture of the final product before I took it over to my parents for dinner. Where, last I heard, my brother was very much enjoying the brownies and I am pretty sure they are probably almost gone. lol.
Just imagine they look like this picture here.

Happy Baking Friends!
