THE INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED
So you will need very little!
15 ounce chickpeas rinsed and drained well (super important – otherwise you will have gas)
½ cup peanut butter (you can substitute with other nut butters)
1 tsp of almond extract
then 1/3 cup of maple syrup (the real stuff)
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp aluminum free baking powder
then ¼ tsp salt
and ¼ cup of any kind of chocolate chips (dairy free if you want to keep it vegan)
Preheat your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8×8 baking pan with a vegan butter or coconut oil. Add all the ingredients into a blender or food processor minus the chocolate chips. Blend until smooth and then fold in the chocolate chips into the batter. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 2o to 25 minutes. Check to see if it is ready until a toothpick can be inserted clean. Make sure to cool your chocolate chip chickpea blondies for about 30 minutes before slicing them, otherwise they may crumble. You can drizzle melted chocolate on the tops if you want them to look fancier. You want to store them in an airtight container and refrigerate these blondies for up to a week, for guaranteed freshness.
So get to it and Enjoy!!!!
