These Chocolate Peanut Butter Chickpea Blondies are vegan, gluten-free and bursting with flavour. Naturally sweetened, they're the perfect dessert to sneak in some protein packed beans!
Ingredients
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • ½ tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Place all ingredients except chocolate and salt into the bowl of a food processor.
  3. Process on high for 3-5 minutes, scraping down sides as needed, until mixture is smooth and well blended.
  4. Stir in dark chocolate chunks.
  5. Pour chickpea dough mixture into a 9 x 9 pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes. Edges will be crispy and firm to touch while the centre will remain moist and soft to touch.
  7. Allow to cool completely before enjoying. The centre will firm up a bit while cooling but will still remain perfectly moist and soft.
Notes
Due to the high moisture content of the chickpeas, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Chickpea Blondies should be enjoyed within 3-4 days. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container.
