These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chickpea Blondies are so delicious! If you haven’t tried chickpea blondies or brownies yet you must give them a try! They are super moist and chewy. Also, these blondies are naturally gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian! Plus, they are low in added sugar.
About Chickpea Blondies…
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chickpea Blondies will be a little different than traditional blondies. The texture is a little bit more crumbly, so refrigerating them will make them easier to cut and remove from the pan. I would recommend storing them in the refrigerator to extend their freshness. Also, these freeze great! Simply put in an airtight container and stick in the freezer.
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chickpea Blondies
For this recipe, most of the ingredients are pantry staples. A few others may be things you don’t have regularly in your kitchen:
- Chickpeas- canned is the easiest for this recipe.
- Creamy peanut butter- whichever brand is your favorite!
- Maple syrup- or honey if preferred although if vegan go with maple syrup.
- Peanut Flour- PB Fit is my go to! You can find these near the peanut butter.
- Coconut oil- vegetable oil will work as well.
- Almond flour- I have found Trader Joe’s to have the best prices for this!
- Chocolate chips– dairy-free if needed or desired.
Tips for Making Chickpea Blondies
This recipe is really quick to put together. Here are a few tips to make it even easier:
- Grease or line your pan with parchment paper to make them easy to remove from the dish.
- Check ingredient swaps above if you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand.
- Be sure to store leftover almond flour in the refrigerator to extend its freshness.
- You will need a blender or food processor for this recipe. I used my favorite food processor.
- Refrigerate once cooled to make easier to slice and store in the refrigerator for extended freshness. There are no preservatives in these so they will only last a day or two out of the refrigerator.
- Freeze in air tight containers! Defrost when ready to eat in the refrigerator or on the counter.
