Chickpea Blondies

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile..school has had me BUSY BUSY! Every now and then we should all reward ourselves with a sweet treat…and why not something that is somewhat a healthy one! This dessert recipe is yummy and guess what the main ingredient is…Garbanzo beans!  These basically taste like Reese’s brownies and yes..they’re VEGAN AND Gluten-Free!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups pre-soaked garbanzo beans OR 1 can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal/ ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Carob chips (You can always add more if you’re a chocoholic) If you are not vegan, you can use milk chocolate chips or even dark chocolate chips

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients except carob chips into food processor and blend until mixed thoroughly. Mix in carob chips with a spoon. Bake in 8 x 8 pan for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned on top. (You want to under-cook these as they harden when cooled! (and in my opinion..the gooier, the better!)
