Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Blondies

blondies

I have always loved chickpeas. Now I use them to make vegan gluten-free blondies!!!

Here is an easy and quick recipe to make:

INGREDIENTS:

1 can (15 oz.) of chickpeas rinsed and drained

1/2 cup of peanut butter (add more or less to taste or use different types of nut butters)

1/2 tsp of vanilla

1 tbsp organic coconut oil

1/4 cup of maple syrup (add more if you like them sweeter)

1/2 cup of organic dark vegan chocolate broken into pieces (you can use Terra Nostra rice milk chocolate or vegan Camino baking chocolate)

Preheat your oven to 375 F

Put all of the ingredients except the chocolate pieces in a food processor and process until smooth.

The mixture will be thick and quite wet – don’t worry as this produces delicious results!

Once your mixture is fairly smooth, stir in the chocolate pieces – but don’t process them.

Spread into 9 x 9 baking pan.

Bake for 30 -40 minutes.

They don’t rise very much but are delicious just the same!

They are done when you can put a toothpick in and it comes out clean.

Let cool down and cut into squares.

Refrigerate and enjoy!!

They are best, I think, right out of the fridge and seem to hold together better that way too.

Yields about 9 blondies.
