Chickpea and Chocolate Chip Blondies
These little treats allow you to indulge guilt free!
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
½ c all natural peanut butter or almond butter
⅓ c maple syrup or agave nectar
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
⅓ c dark chocolate chips
sea salt (garnish)
1. Preheat oven to 350º
2. In a food processor combine all ingredients except chocolate chips and pulse until smooth.
3. Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray and then spread dough evenly into pan.
4. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and then bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
5. Cool in pan for 20 minutes and then sprinkle with sea salt. Cut into squares.
I personally don’t want my 2 year old son to have chocolate chips at his age so I only sprinkle half the pan with them so we both have a great snack to enjoy together.
