Ingredients:

  • 1 can chickpeas (approx. 400 grams), rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/3 cup nut butter (almond or PB – I used PB)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (if desired)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp natural sweetener, to taste
  • Handful of sugar-free or regular chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper
  • Mix all ingredients in a food processor or a high powered blender until smooth
  • Pour batter into pan and spread evenly
  • Top with chocolate chips. Tip: Lightly press chocolate chips into the batter so they stick
  • Bake 15-20 minutes depending on your oven

Makes 16 medium size blondies. Enjoy!
