    Hi Anna! As these brownies are from Sophie’s ‘My Kids Eat’ recipe book, we do not have the macros. You could use a tracking app such as ‘The Bod’ to figure out the macros if you would like to know :)

    I have made these chickpea brownies a few times and absolutely love them (too much) but I’d like to know how many calories per serve please.

    Hi Melissa! I would perhaps try adjusting the honey and maple syrup to 1/3 cup each rather than 1/2 cup. Let me know how this goes! :) xx

    Hi I’m having issues with this baking – it seems runny. I followed the recipe and it’s been in the oven for over an hour and still
    Liquid. Any suggestions?
