Chickpea Brownies with Christmas fast approaching baking a brownie as a gift is something most of us look forward to. This is a gooey fudgy chocolate brownie just melts in the mouth.

Chickpea Brownies using Aquafaba

This brownie is actually a vegan one but since I lost my nerve the last moment and used ½ cup maida/all purpose flour so this is not technically a vegan bake.  

An Update when I went to write this post I was under the impression that Maida/All-purpose flour is not allowed in Vegan food. I stand corrected. It is acceptable and the bake is Vegan. Thanks girls for correcting me.

To make this brownie I made aquafaba, the unsalted water after boiling cholay! I did not think I can pull it off but lo behold my brownie is so delicious.

I have heard Gayatri talk a lot about aquafaba and I copied it from her place (what else she is a master baker and master experimenter) but still, I could not believe my eyes when I whipped the aquafaba. Take a look it is so beautifully silkily beautiful.

I can think of so many more possibilities with this yum aquafaba. Don’t get me wrong I am not converting to a vegan diet (I love my fish a bit too much for that) but still new things that work are something’s that start the rusty gears into action.

Looks like I am growing older I have started rambling.

This Monday, yes Monday is the day #FoodieMondayBloghop post is due and this Monday we are doing                                   #175 Christmas Special.

The reason I am talking about baking is that every year in December Srivalli has a Bake-a-ton where we post 3 times a week any baked item. This is the first time I am participating and since I have had absolutely no plans of joining in my bakes are all random.

There is another reason that I am doing a chickpea brownie I am hosting My legume love affair where any dish featuring legumes as the star ingredient is welcome. Can I request you to please check it up and post you delicious dishes in the link? Details are here.

These brownies are adapted from here.

    Wow ! This Aquafaba brownie sounds delish and doable too. It’s technicslly a vegan recipe Arch as no dairy product is used, but not entirely flourless / Guten free as maida was added. I must remember to send in my chickpea Brownie as an MLLA entry too. Pls remind me to do so:)
    And yes , gayathri is the food scientist amongst us to prop us to try new things!
