Looking for ways to get more beans in your diet? Try this yummy garbanzo bean muffin recipe I invented yesterday. It even passed the taste test of a junk-food loving curmudgeon friend of mine.



15 oz can of unsalted garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

2 flax eggs (2 T ground flax + 5 T H2O, stir and let sit a few minutes until thick)

4 oz. of deglet dates (about 1 cup)

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup of mix-ins (chocolate chips, raisins, etc.)



First, decimate the dates in a food processor. Then add the beans and flax eggs and process until blended. Add remaining ingredients (except mix-ins) and blend again. Finally, add mix-ins and pulse briefly.

Dollop into lined or silicone muffin molds and bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.

Don't have time for muffin-makin'? Try some WellBean for 1/2 serving of beans, fruit, and nuts.

WellBean cofounder, Patty, is happy with her bean muffin.

  • I also used 1/2 cup PB2 with a few tablespoons of water instead of peanut butter it and worked amazing

  • I made these with medjool dates the same amount as the deglet dates and they taste amazing!

  • These look amazing ! What if I use the Medjool dates ? That’s all I have ?

  • Anyone have any experience making these with date syrup vs. whole dates? Would they need additional “body”?
