So Good Chickpea Blondies

Amy Palanjian
These blondies are packed with just-sweet-enough flavor and nutrition. I prefer these chilled, but see what you think!

  • 14.5- ounce can chickpeas (also called "garbanzo" beans)
  • 1/2 cup sliced very ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (chopped or mini chocolate chips)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8x8-inch pan with nonstick spray. (I use Pam classic.)
  • Add the chickpeas to a colander to drain. Rinse with water. Drain.
  • Add to a food processor with the banana, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and baking soda. Grind on high to make a uniformly smooth batter. (It might take 15-30 seconds.)
  • Pulse in the flour and chocolate until just combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 24-26 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown and the top is firm to the touch.
  • Let cool fully in the pan and slice to serve.


  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. I prefer them chilled, but they are fine at any temperature.
  • Be sure to use a very ripe banana for the best flavor.
  • These are not super sweet. If you think that might be an issue, add 2 tablespoons sugar to the batter.
  • Use honey instead of maple syrup if needed.
  • Use almond butter or sunflower seed butter instead of the peanut butter.
  • Use a gluten-free cup for cup flour blend instead of all purpose if desired.
