Gluten-Free Chickpea Blondies
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas*
  • ½ cup almond butter or nut butter of your choice
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8" square baking pan or dish with parchment paper, or coat with coconut oil.
  2. Place chickpeas, almond butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda and coconut in a blender or food processor and puree until well-combined and smooth.
  3. Pour batter into your square pan and smooth it out with an oiled spatula or slightly wet fingers. If you have extra coconut flakes, sprinkle them over the top.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until slightly golden. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack for at least 20 minutes. Slice into 16 squares and serve.
You can use canned chickpeas to make it easier. Most cans measure about 1½ cups of chickpeas, so pick up a couple so you have enough. Rinse and dry before using.
