About Chickpea Brownies…

If you haven’t had chickpea brownies before the texture is definitely different from regular brownies. However, I have found that if you store them in the refrigerator they are much easier to cut and serve. The refrigerator will also help to keep them fresh longer… if you need to!

As if these Nutella Chickpea Brownies needed any more “brownie points” (I can’t help myself, I’m the queen of corny jokes in my house) they also freeze perfectly! Simply store in an airtight container and keep some for later!
