Stop what you are doing and make this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe!


Hi guys!

We had a nice, although rainy, weekend in the mountains.  I was able to find just enough time to get my garden and flowers planted for the year.  I’ll have some pictures to share with you on Friday.  The boys are feeling a lot better and so far no one else is sick.

To celebrate I thought I’d share with a recipe I’ve been hanging onto for a few months for just the right time to post.  This is one of those recipes that is almost too good to be true.  This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe is so rich and decadent but somehow is magically healthy-ish.   It’s VEGAN and made with no flour and an entire can of chickpeas… yet still tastes so rich that you’ll be wondering how it’s even possible.

Let’s face it, sometimes healthy baking isn’t that good.  If I try a recipe and would rather just eat the REAL thing, I don’t share it with you.  This one though is WINNER.  It’s the kind of recipe where no one would blame you if you dropped what you are doing to go and make these now.

If you aren’t familiar with blondies, they are like a rich brownie but without the cocoa powder to make it all chocolate.  But don’t worry, you still get your chocolate fix with these.  The chickpeas make the brownie/ blondie batter taste so rich and fudgy and mini chocolate chips win over the chocoholics.

They don’t taste healthy at all… which is a good thing in the baking world!

What’s in this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe?

  • Chickpeas also called garbanzo beans
  • Peanut Butter
  • Sweeteners
  • Almond Milk
  • Baking Essentials – baking powder, cinnamon, etc.

How to Make this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe!

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe is best made in a high-speed blender or food processor.  I have this system that does BOTH and I love it.

  1. Preheat your oven and spray your pan.
  2. Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips in your blender or food processor.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour in the pan and bake!
  5. Allow them to cool in the fridge before cutting.

These are easy to make and my only tip is to allow them to cool in the fridge before cutting.  They are a bit soft and do best in smaller pieces!

I hope you enjoy this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies recipe as much as I did!  If you love them feel free to share this post with your friends.

    I’ve been avoiding gluten lately but really miss brownies. These are perfect! I’m not even kidding when I say I’m going to make these right now. I have all of the ingredients and my kids will be so happy to have a snack when they get home today.

    You had me at chocolate chips! Seriously, I have to try this recipe, I’ve never made a brownie with chickpeas. Sounds “a little” healthier so, YES!

    This recipe sounds incredible! I’ll have to give it a try with almond butter instead of peanut butter, but I bet it will still be delicious!
