Deliciously satisfying Chickpea Chocolate Chip Blondies

Ingredients

  • 1 can of chickpeas drained and rinsed well, approx. 240g
  • 1.5 cups (150g) coconut sugar or raw cane sugar
  • 1 cup (110g) oat flour (or grind oats to a FINE flour consistency in a high-speed blender)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

...

  • ½ cup (120g) smooth natural almond or peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp (7g) milled flaxseed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt

I feel like brownies get way more attention than the blondie…it’s more subtle counterpart but equally as chewy, fudgy and satisfying, once you have the right recipe.

I’ve baked quite a few blondies which in hindsight were much more of a cakey consistency. These blondies live up to expectations, laced with chocolate drops with an extra drizzle on top, they have the flavour and texture that my heart desires.
