I am tired of baking with sugar sugar sugar and white flour which is like sugar. I found a dessert recipe with chickpeas and peanut butter and I modified it and made it for the family. They were so-so about it but I think it is because of the peanut butter taste. Kids these days just don’t like good ol’ PB. It’s actually kind of sad.
Chick peas are a protein-carbohydrate food and they add the perfect moisture to these faux blondies. You can reduce or omit the chocolate chips altogether for a healthier version.
Faux and Flourless
1 cup smooth natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 can of chick peas (drained and rinsed)
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Note: The blondies in these photos were marbled by melting the chocolate chips in a double boiler first and later stirred in. This proved more difficult than expected because the chickpea mixture is very thick. The melted chocolate didn’t marble that nicely. Either way, it ended up being delicious!
Try it and let us know how it turns out and if you liked it!
