Gluten Free Chickpea Chocolate Cake

A very good high protein alternative to flourless chocolate cake. You need a food processor to do the mixing. Give it a try!

Something else. I cooked it longer than specified, but my oven is unreliable.

Great recipe. I made it into cupcakes, but I did tweek it a little. I added a teaspoon of baking powder, a teaspoon of vanilla and 5 tablespoons of butter. (I melted the butter in with the chocolate.) Fill your cupcake tin almost to the top with the batter. I baked for 23 minutes and they were moist and delicious!

Incredible! I shared this with co-workers and they loved it. The taste of gluten-free food keeps getting better and better. Note for previous reviewer: Hershey, Reeses, & WalMart Brand chocolate chips are GF...

My mother-in-law is gluten and lactose intolerant, so I thought I'd give this a shot on her last visit. Yum! Very cakelike, good nutty texture and taste from the beans. I think I would change it by adding a bit of vanilla, and using bittersweet chocolate, but otherwise it's great. I'm going to keep making it for myself even though she's gone home. :-) Make sure the flour you use to dust the pan is gluten-free, or even better, use cocoa instead.

Uh, this is RIDICULOUS... Ridiculously fantastic! For a point of reference, I have been buying the Trader Joe's flourless chocolate cake... this recipe is just as good if not better! I substituted 1/3C egg whites for two of the four eggs. I also used 1/2 C milk chocolate chips and 1 C. semi sweet chips, and dusted the pan with unsweetened coco pwdr. I have a gluten intolerance and only use Ghiradelli as Hershey's is difficult to get an answer about allergies. Hope this is helpful.

This cake is the most delicious and decedent chocolate cake I have ever tasted! For all those reviewers who are giving this recipe 1/5 stars, you must NOT be following the recipe correctly. It actually upsets me reading the negative reviews. How is possible to be biting into a bean? You are supposed to be blending the beans into a smooth mixture via a food processor! How is it dry? The recipe calls for 4 eggs! Grainy? Again, mix via food processor to a smooth consistency and wash the beans thoroughly beforehand. Not sweet enough or chocolately enough? Are you using the correct measuring spoons?! Anyone who follows this recipe to the exact T should be successful in making a delicious cake. If you have a good quality food processor, a non stick baking pan, and you know how to read and follow instructions, this cake will turn out fantastic. Good luck!

I made this cake out of plain curiosity in my search for healthy deserts - it was so much better than i had ever imagined! Garbanzo beans...who would have thought? I covered the cake with strawberries and sifted powdered sugar - it was a hit! I think the strawberries gave the cake the sugar/sweetness that a frosting would have normally - next time i will try out different fruits

Unbelievable! I tried this because I thought it sounded interesting (maybe a little bit weird). I told my husband to try it first since I wasn't sure. But it is THE BEST FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE I've ever had! It's rich, sweet, intensely chocolate--awesome!!!!!! Everyone should give this a try. The ingredients might seem odd, but the technique is simple, and the results are good enough to sell in a bakery! (Only recipe note: I turned my oven up to 360 instead of 350 since I'm at high altitude.)
