I used organic chickpeas in a can (just one can) that I prewashed in a sieve before processing, a cup of peeled, diced, fresh apple (instead of sugar), 4 large eggs, Nestle dark chocolate chunks (next time I’ll make sure I get chocolate without soy lecithin). And I threw everything into my Nutri Ninja Bullet. Everything fit into the tall canister. The Bullet blended everything super smooth.
The cake didn’t rise a lot but it was super fudgy moist and had a sort of crackle top like a brownie. It is very rich, dense and chocolaty. You really can’t eat too much at once The texture reminded me of high-end restaurant flourless cakes. I served the cake with freshly whipped cream without sugar and frozen mixed berries that I thawed.
So easy. So amazing. It really hits the spot with a chocolate craving. I just hope I don’t react to chickpeas!
Note: I did react. I don't know to what. My hands swelled up which is always the first thing that happens when I react to a food. I think it's the baking powder. My baking powder is gluten free, but I read the back of the container and it says 'rice flour'. Lately, I've discovered that I react to soy and rice flour. Soy lecithin was in my dark choc chunks and rice flour in my gluten free baking powder. After some research, I've decided next time I'll use 1/4 tsp of bicarb soda mixed with white vinegar, and I'll find a dark chocolate without the soy. But I will definitely try this recipe again! It is worth it!
