Who loves chocolate and peppermint muffins? You cannot see me but I am raising my hand! Count me in. But if only the calories were not so high. There has to be an alternative. If you are nodding your head in agreement, then indulge with these Minty Chocolate Chickpeas Muffins made with healthy ingredients. And can you believe they are made with chickpeas instead of white flour! At first that sounded odd to me and could not believe they would be any good. But was I wrong! They are delicious and addicting. You can make them as mini-muffins or regular muffins. The mini muffins are perfect if you are going to a gathering and want to bring a healthier dish. Plus they freeze nicely. I make my healthy snacks for work ahead of time and then freeze until needed! Inspiration for this wonderful recipe is Beachbody 21-Fix Day Food Program.

 Making the Chickpeas Muffins

This is a super easy recipe to make! As a disclaimer, my Chickpeas Muffins tend to collapse a bit after taking them out of the oven but they are still delicious! Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 24 mini-muffin cups or 12 regular muffin cups by lightly spraying with non-stick spray or lining with paper liners. 

Now let’s get out our food processor because it is going to do all the work for us! Place the drained and rinsed chickpeas in our food processor blending until smooth. Then slowly add the eggs, raw honey, coconut oil and peppermint extract blending into the chickpeas. Slowly add unsweetened cocoa powder and baking soda blending until smooth. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake for 15 – 25  minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool before removing storing the Chickpeas Muffins in an airtight container. This recipe came from Beachbody and is part of the 21-Day Challenge. Please refer to their recipe for accurate conversion of containers.

    1. They are delicious. But keep in mind chickpeas are a vegan protein and a carb. I should update my post with that information. But definitely a healthier option to white flour.

  1. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe! I never thought of using chickpeas in place of flour, I would love to try this flourless muffin recipe.
