Chickpea blondies with loads of chocolate chips are made with beans but you'd never know it! They're vegan, gluten-free, flour-free and only 9 ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 15 ounces canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1 1/2 cups
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy chocolate chips, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 8 by 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor, add all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
  • Fold in half of the chocolate chips with a spoon. Transfer to the prepared pan and spread the batter evenly. I usually wet my hands and press down gently, or use a spatula.
  • Sprinkle the last 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top of the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Let them cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! I like to store leftover bars in the refrigerator; they will last up to 1 week this way and they taste good cold. Or store in a covered container at room temperature for 2-3 days.

Notes

  1. May substitute coconut sugar for the brown sugar if desired.
  2. If you have a peanut allergy, you can use almond butter instead. 
  3. For nut free chickpea blondies, use sunflower seed butter and oat flour instead of almond flour.
