High Protein Chocolate Chip Cake or Cookies (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free)


This is another recipe based on one from the brilliant cookbook The Daily Bean by Suzanne Caciola White.  Her recipe is spectacular, but I needed to make it GFCF, and wanted to make it suitable for nut free school lunches.

2 cups cooked garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

3+ tablespoon. water for pureeing beans

1/2 cup coconut oil or pastured lard

2 cups brown sugar (or 1 cup honey if you avoid refined sugars)

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla (or 1 vanilla bean pod)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 cups gluten free flower ( I tend to use brown rice, sorghum, or millet, but any blend will work)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup Enjoy Life brand mini choc. chips

Turn oven on to 350 F.

Puree garbanzo bean till smooth. Combine wet ingredients in one bowl, dry ingredients in another.  If preparing as a cake/cupcakes, pour into a 9″ x 13″ pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

If preparing as cookies, add a bit more flour (about 1/2 cup at a time) until the dough is stiff enough to roll into balls.  Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges.
