This recipe is unbelievable! Blondies without flour, eggs or oil? Who knew that was even possible?! You will be so surprised at how chewy and fudge-like they are. You would never even guess that the main ingredient is chickpeas!

Yields 15-20 squares

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Chickpeas (1 can, drained and rinsed) (250g)
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3/4 cup Sucanat (dehydrated cane juice…I’m sure this recipe will taste great with any sweetener, like raw honey or maple syrup)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Ground Flax Seeds (aka Flaxseed Meal)
  • 1/4 cup Organic Peanut Butter (make sure the kind you get does not have and added oil or sugar)
  • 1/3 cup Chocolate Chips (This brand is my favorite because it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Blend all ingredients (except chips) in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Transfer mixture into a medium bowl and mix in the chocolate chips
  4. Transfer mixture into a greased 8×8 pan or pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes. You want the blondies to look a little undercooked when you take them out, because they’ll firm up as they cool, and you don’t want them to get hard.
  6. Remove and let cool. Cut into squares. Serve and enjoy!
