Chickpea Blondies

I am fully obsessed with these blondies. The first time I made them I baked them in 3 small heart tins. I meant to save one for my boyfriend but did not end up seeing him that day & ate them all… It turned out not to be a problem because I was more than happy to make more the next day so that I could eat 2 more & still give him one.  Seriously these are that good!

The main ingredient for these blondies are chickpeas. Chickpeas are high in fiber & protein and low in sugar & fat. By simply processing chickpeas you make a tasty & healthy flour that is versatile & can replace many flours in other recipes. Give it a try!

What makes these blondies awesome? They are…

  • Easy & quick to make
  • Healthy & clean
  • Fiber & protein packed
  • Low fat
  • Soft 
  • Melt in your mouth
  • Delicioussss 🙂

Let’s get baking!

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 c raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 c powdered peanut butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of pink himalayan salt

Additional:

  • 1/3 c non-dairy chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray an 8×8 pan or similar with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add all of your ingredients, except for your choc chips to a food processor. Process until ingredients are fully combined & texture is smooth.
  3. Stir in your choc chips.
  4. Pour batter into your pan & bake for about 30 minutes or until edges start to golden.
  5. Allow to cool before removing from pan. These taste best eaten fresh within 2 days but could refrigerate for a bit longer. Enjoy!

One of the good things about it getting colder out is that baking is a great indoor activity. Not to mention sweater weather 🙂 What will you bake next?!
