Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip blondies? I mean, really? They have always been one of my personal favorites but when I cleaned up my nutrition I no longer wanted the processed flour and sugar that came with the delightful dessert.

When I found this amazing recipe I was shocked! It took some convincing for me to even try it. Chickpeas just didn’t sound very cookie-ish, but I gave it a go and boy, was I surprised! Don’t let the ingredients fool you. These are a favorite for everyone I’ve made them for and I have complete faith that you will love them too!

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies
Flourless-Moist-Gooey-SIMPLE, & NO added refined sugar!

{These actually are REALLY good—chickpeas & all!}

Makes 16 bars
1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo
beans /chickpeas, rinsed well (find bpa free can if possible)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
or raw honey
1.5 tsp real vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4-1/3 cup dark chocolate

Rinse, drain and dry the chickpeas with paper towels.
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Line an 8×8” brownie pan with parchment paper.
In a food processor, add in all of the ingredients – except the chocolate chips. Process until just smooth. Add in the chips and pulse for just a second until just combined.
Transfer the batter to your pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
Bake for 20-25 minutes – they may look underdone, but DO NOT over bake – that will dry them out.
Remove from oven and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes before removing and slicing into 16 bars.
