Grain Free Chickpea Blondies
I’ve been craving chickpea brownies for weeks (after seeing some on IG, obviously), and over the weekend I finally made these incredible Grain free Chickpea Blondies. In the past, I would have craved a real blondie, but tried to convince myself I wanted a chickpea “blondie” instead. Now that I eat real brownies/cookies/ice cream whenever I crave them, I’ve found that I also crave the alternative options sometimes. So these bars are in no way a substitute for delicious sugary, buttery, gluteny blondies (which I totally eat), but they’re absolutely delicious in their own right.
These bars are incredibly easy to make (you just throw the ingredients in a food processor then bake) and they are a sweet, hearty, fudgy snack/dessert. PLUS, they have the added benefit of keeping me full longer than an ordinary brownie, so I’ve been bringing a couple to school to snack on during class.
So if you’re craving these as much as I am, you’ll just need
Nut butter (I used 1/2 almond butter, 1/2 walnut butter)
And chocolate chips
