Chocolate Chip (Chickpea) Blondies

You've heard of brownies? This slightly paler variation is a blondie. Just as tasty and a great mid-afternoon snack. Plus, they have sneaky chickpeas in there for a little bit more.


1 can chickpeas (400g) rinsed and drained

1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

1/3 cup sweetener of choice. I used 50g maple syrup and 50g powdered Erythritol

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 egg

1/2 cup chocolate chips or dark chocolate chopped up! I used Green and Blacks 85%


Preheat oven to 180C

Put all the ingredients except for the chocolate into a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Stir through the chocolate and pour into a greased and baking paper lined square cake tin. (20cm x 20cm)

Bake for about 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
