Healthiest Blondies Ever

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.
