because lavenders have more fun! 😉
is that what you call someone with purple hair? lavenders? there’s gotta be something out there that already “titles” it!
anyyyyyy who… back to business:
i’ve been wanting to try out the whole “chick pea/garbanzo bean” in baked goods thang.
and it was by FAR one of the best damn desserts i’ve created thus far. and that’s saying a lot! 😉
i bring you…. an oooey-super-duper-gooey chocolate (grain free!) blondie.
yeah, you read that. these are gluten free 100%.
you get the point, they’re A-OKAY on the waist line!
side note & funny fact: you know you have too many kitchen gadgets (that you don’t use enough) when you are trying to fit pieces together when prepping for baking something and to realize you have the base of a Juicer and trying to top it with a Food Processor piece.. #BLONDEmoment (like what i did there.. blonde.. blondie…)
anywho! game time. you ready?!?!?
Gluten Free Blondies
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas/gorbanzo beans
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup walden farms calorie-free syrup (regular syrup or honey will do too obviously)
splash of vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
and the willpower not to eat the batter…
step 1: always always rinse and drain your beans to get excess salt and gas outta them (aint’t no one got time for blondies that make you gassy!)
step 2: put beans in food processor and blend until they’re chopped up, then add in peanut butter, syrup, vanilla extract and baking powder.
step 3: with a spatula, transfer dough to a mixing bowl, then fold in chocolate chips!
step 6: pop in oven for 25-30 minutes, at 25 minute mark, stick a knife into center of blondies and if it comes out clean, they’re done!
that’s my excuse and i’m stickin’ to it!
