Peanut Butter Blondies

Sometimes you need a little afternoon treat. I was going through one of my Pinterest boards, looking at saved recipes for inspiration. Luckily this one I had all the ingredients for. They were moist, delicious, and just the right amount of sweet. All thanks to a surprise ingredient….garbanzo beans. These are grain-free, gluten-free, vegan and perfect with an afternoon cup of coffee. I made a few small changes to the recipe but you can find the original recipe by Joy Food Sunshine here. I hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think.

Ingredients:

1 15 oz can Garbanzo Beans

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

1/4 cup Blue Agave Syrup

1 TBS Vanilla Almond Milk

2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Tsp Sea Salt

1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp Baking Soda

1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add all ingredients except chocolate chips into a high power blender or a food processor to make the batter smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.

Grease a a glass pan (I used vegan butter) and pour batter in. Top with extra chocolate chips and sea salt. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
