Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies
Updated: Jan 4
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup all natural almond butter
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat 8×8 inch pan with coconut oil. In a food processor, add all ingredients except chocolate chips and process until batter is smooth. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a 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 a wire rack and cut into squares
