Why I Love These Chickpea Chocolate Chip Blondies

  • Quick Prep and Bake Time. Make them in 30 minutes from start to finish! Bake time is only about 20 to 23 minutes and prep time is an additional 5-7 minutes. Everything just gets tossed right into the food processor to do the work for you!
  • Contain NO flour. Yep you heard me right! These Chickpea Blondies are made without flour and instead with just a bit of rolled oats.
  • Made with only real, wholesome ingredients. No sketchy or questionable ingredients here.
  • Refined Sugar Free. This recipe doesn’t contain any refined sugar such as white sugar or brown sugar. Instead, these Chickpea Chocolate Chip Blondies are sweetened using pure maple syrup. You can easily swap raw honey for the maple syrup if you don’t have syrup on hand.
  • Super Easy to Make. You don’t have to be a fancy baker to make this recipe. It’s simple, easy, and there’s no way to mess it up!

Ingredient Substitutions for Chickpea Chocolate Chip Blondies

  • Maple Syrup – You can swap raw unfiltered honey 1:1.
  • Almond Butter – If you don’t have almond butter you can swap with any other nut butter such as cashew or peanut. It will give the blondies a different taste but they will still be delish!
  • Golden Flax Meal – You can swap for regular flax meal if you don’t have golden.
  • Tahini – You can omit all together or swap for nut butter.
