Chickpea Blondies

     So, we have all seen the black bean brownies on different blogs (which are amazing!), and here is a take on the blondie! Chickpeas are a great source of protein and fibre and are really versatile. Honestly these taste nothing like chickpea (which I suppose is good when baking ;) ), and are delicious! Lately I have been favouring grain free over just gluten free and I think it has been making a difference. So for those of you who are looking into grain free or just looking to eat healthier desserts, this recipe is perfect for you!

  • 1 large can of chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
