Serves: 8
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet/Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 15 Ounce Can Garbanzo Beans (drained and rinsed)

  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Oil or Butter a 9" round cake pan (don't flour it unless you use gluten free flour).
  3. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat chips in 30 second intervals. Stir between each heating until they are melted.
  4. Add the garbanzo beans and eggs to the bowl of a food processor. Buzz until smooth. Add the honey, the cinnamon, vanilla and the baking powder. Pulse to blend everything together.
  5. Pour in the melted chocolate chips and Nutella and blend until smooth. Scrape down the sides to make sure everything is completely mixed.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  7. Slide pan into oven and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Cool cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before turning it out onto a serving plate.
  9. Let cake cool completely before sprinkling with powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
I served this cake with a side of whipped cream and raspberries.
