Thick, fluffy, and soft chickpea blondies made with chickpeas, nut butter, coconut flour, and chocolate. Not too sweet and every bite has a delicious texture somewhere between a cake and a chewy blondie. Just blend, pour, and bake.

Shopping List
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/4 cup smooth nut or seed butter (peanut, almond, sunflower, etc)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (Note 2)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (Note 3)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 1 (5 in. x 7 in.) oven-safe pan(s) with parchment paper and grease any exposed edges. An (8 in. x 8 in.) pan may also be used, but will yield slightly less tall blondies.
  2. Step 2: Add all ingredients, except the egg(s) and chocolate chips, to a food processor. Blend until a smooth batter is formed. Pulse in the egg until just combined. Remove the inner blade and stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Step 3: Transfer the thick batter to the prepared pan. Spread out the batter with a spatula until it is flat. Sprinkle any remaining chocolate chips on top. Bake the blondies for 30 to 35 minutes, or until s toothpick comes out clean and edges are golden brown. The batter will feel slightly soft when pressed.
  4. Serve: Cool the pan for at least 20 minutes on a wire rack. Refrigerate or cut into squares. These are best enjoyed slightly warmed. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Recipe adapted from the lovely Bethany @lilsipper.

Note 2: An equal amount of additional maple syrup or honey can be used in place of the applesauce if needed. Keep in mind it will make the blondies a bit more sweet.

Note 3: Coconut flour can be substituted with an equal amount of protein powder. The results will be less fluffy, but still tasty.
