Healthy Vegan Chickpea Blondies

These vegan chickpea blondies swap flour and white sugar for lighter alternatives like chickpeas, peanut butter, and rolled oats. Just because they’re healthier, doesn’t mean they’re lacking flavor! These blondies are gooey, chewy, and absolutely delicious. Unlike traditional blondies, these are high in protein and in fiber.

The tray I baked didn’t even make it through the afternoon in my house!.

These blondies only take 10 minutes to prep and they’re made with basic pantry ingredients.
