I’ve had these babies on my Pinterest board for ages, but couldn’t bring myself to make them because I was wary of its secret ingredient.
They look delish though, so you don’t even need to close your eyes in order to trick your senses.
From now on, whenever I need some guilt free sweet stuff, I’m going to pull out a can of garbanzo beans.
You should try them. I swear that if I like them, you will too!
These blondies were inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie’s.
Recipe makes an 8x8in pan.
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips until very smooth (I used a hand mixer).
Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour into 8x8in pan.
Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of the batter.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Don’t worry if they look a little undercooked – they will harden up once they cool.
Thanks as always to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!

Hmm I saw those too and was wondering…now I just might have to give them a whirl!
You should! Let me know what you think. 🙂
Those look awesome! Might try subbing coconut sugar for the brown sugar
Oooh that’s a great idea. I’ve never had coconut sugar before, I’ll have to check it out.
mmmm i love chickpeas in brownies/blondies they give them such an amazing texture.
Yeah, I was surprised how gooey they were!
I’ve never thought of using chickpeas in baking. They look very soft.
I know, I’ll have to test them out with more baking recipes!
Those are gluten-free as well, no? Means we could eat them here.
