Secretly healthy blondies made with chickpeas, peanut butter and chocolate. Packed with blood sugar stabilising proteins.

Ingredients:

1 can (15oz) chickpeas, rinsed & drained

1/2 cup all natural almond butter or peanut butter

1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or honey if you’re vegan)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup vegan (or regular) chocolate chips (+ 2 teaspoons for sprinkling)

 

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease 8×8 inch pan with butter.
  • In a food processor, add all ingredients except chocolate chips and process until batter is smooth.
  • Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, I like to use dark chocolate because it has less sugar but it’s up to you. Note: Batter will be thick and super delicious, so you could actually just eat it on it’s own!
  • Spread batter evenly in prepared pan then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 20-­25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and edges are a tiny bit brown. The batter may look underdone, but you don’t want them to dry out!
  • Cool pan for 20 minutes on wire rack.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt & cut into squares.
  • Serves 16
