One of my new favorite blogs, Hipster Food, introduced me to the Vegan Month of October, or Vegan MOFO. I loved this concept, and immediately consulted my expert vegan friend Yessica. So we traded some recipes, and she sent me this awesome recipe that uses garbanzo beans in place of flour. OMG! I had to try it. I adapted it a bit, and it’s not technically vegan since I used regular chocolate chips. It’s indulgently creamy – combining pumpkin pie with a big ol’ chocolate chip cookie with the crunch from oats. And it’s gluten free!


2 cans Garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)

1 cup Irish steel oats

1/2 c. pureed pumpkin

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. cinnamon

3 tbsp. coconut oil

1 1/2c. brown sugar

1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until smooth. Mix in the chocolate chips and pour into a spingform pan. Bake for 35 minutes, and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan.

  6. Vivian says:

    Ooops….i do see the 350deg, but i have a 7,8 & 9″ tins….which is best?

  7. becca says:

    Hi Vivian! You could do it in any of those pans, just depends how thick you want your cake.

    Thanks for this recipe. Any idea on what I could substitute for the oats.? I react to all grains (including oats) so it would need to be something other than flour. Or would it work to just leave out the oats?

    • Jason says:

      That’s a lot of oats to just omit. Coconut flour might work. I though almond flour, but it might be too grainy still.

    What about cookies…Do you think you would have to leave something out or add something for these to work as cookies??

  10. Cassie says:

    This looks great! What are Irish steel cut oats? Are those just regular steel cut?

  11. becca says:

    Hi Cassie. That’s a good question. I think they are just regular steel cut, which have their origins in the Ireland and the UK. At least that’s what wikipedia said…
