Gooey Chickpea Blondies

gooey chickpea blondies

Chickpeas in a sweet baked item? I know what you're thinking. It sounds crazy but you'll have to trust me on this one. This healthy alternative to blondies has a gooey texture and a creamy, nutty flavour.

Three great health benefits: rich source of plant-based protein, good source of fibre, promotes healthy skin

Makes 9 squares

Ingredients:
1 tsp extra virgin coconut oil
1 x 400g can chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp rock salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/3 cup cacao nibs

Method:
1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
2) Use the coconut oil to grease an 8x8 inch square cake tin
3) Place all of the ingredients, with the exception of the cacao nibs, into a food processor and whizz together to form a smooth batter
4) Stir in the cacao nibs, keeping back approx 1 tbsp
5) Pour the mixture into the cake tin and smooth so it's evenly distributed. Sprinkle the remaining cacao nibs over the top
6) Bake for 15- 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin then cut into squares.
