  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed) (250g after draining)

  • ¾

    tsp baking powder

  • tsp baking soda

  • ¼

    tsp salt

  • ¾

    cup brown sugar or coconut sugar (See note below, for substitutions)

  • 2

    tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼

    cup ground flax or quick oats (20g)

  • ¼

    cup peanut butter (or other fat source)

  • optional: ½ cup chocolate chips (Not “optional” if you’re CCK!)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients (except chips) until very smooth in a good food processor (not a blender). Mix in chips, and scoop into a greased (or tinfoil-lined) 8×8 pan. Optional: for “prettiness” you can stick some chocolate chips on top of the batter as well. Bake for around 30 minutes. They’ll look a little undercooked when you take them out, but they firm up as they cool, and you don’t want them to get hard. Sugar note: I also made a batch using stevia, which I thought were delicious! But my friends informed me they tasted like bars of soap. Therefore, I’ll keep making the stevia version, but just for myself… a tray of blondies all to oneself is never a bad thing! (Edit: commenters have had success with subbing some of the sugar for stevia, with xylitol, with evaporated cane juice, with banana, etc. Please feel free to try any of the ideas people have left in the comment section. But don’t be upset with me if the experiments don’t work out well. I can only vouch for the results if you make the recipe as written!)
