Ingredients
  • 1/2cup (75 g) gluten-free oats
  • 1 1/2cups (275 g) chickpeas(15 oz. can)
  • 1/2cup (120 g) almond butter
  • 1/3cup (75 g) canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/2tsp sea salt
  • 1tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/2cup (90 g) semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F/176C. In a food processor add oats. Pulse until flour like substance.
  2. Next add remaining ingredients: chickpeas, almond butter, canned pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and pumpkin spice. Blend to combine. Remove S-shape blade and add 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Fold into batter.
  3. Line a square cake pan (I used a 9×9 inch pan / 23cm x 23cm) with parchment paper. Rub the sides with a bit of coconut oil. Pour batter into baking dish and spread to even. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Bake blondies for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before cutting into squares.
Recipe Notes

Blondies will keep in fridge for up to 5 days, and they freeze well.

To make these blondies healthier you can forgo adding the chocolate chips, but I like them for a little decadence.
