- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- ⅔ cup coconut sugar
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ⅔ cup pumpkin
- ⅓ cup oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior vanilla protein
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅔ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup chocolate chips (optional, but you know you want them)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Right on into your food processor, add ALL the ingredients—EXCEPT the chocolate chips.
- Process everything until it's all smooth and creamy, pausing the processor to scrape down the sides as necessary.
- Then, add in the chocolate chips and stir them around, so they're well-distributed.
- Then, spritz a square baking pan with coconut oil spray or line that sucker with parchment paper.
- Spread your batter into the pan and then bake it for 25–30 minutes, until it feels firm to the touch and a toothpick comes out of the pan clean.
- Remove, let cool, cut and enjoy!
- Store leftovers on the counter or fridge. Or you can freeze 'em for a snow day!
