Recipe: Chickpea Blondie Brownies

SAM_4863
Here’s the chickpea recipe as promised:
That’s the original, and they have TONNES of other healthy recipes I want to try!
I adapted my brownies as follows:
Chickpea Blondie Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Cooked Chickpeas (was about 1 1/2 cans), drained
  • 1 Cup crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 Cup maple syrup
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup dark choc chips and 1/4 Cup White choc chips
  • 2 handfuls chopped hazelnuts
  
*  Blend all except hazelnuts and choc chips in a blender until smooth-ish- is never going to be 100% smooth cos of the crunchy peanut butter!
*  Mix in hazelnuts and choc chips, and pour into a baking paper-lined cake slice tray.
*  Cook in preheated oven- at 350F  – for about 30 mins.  Check with metal skewer- should come out clean when done (excluding melted choc from choc chips).
Ta dah, easy peasy! Next time I might try swapping the choc chips for dried dates, or am thinking the denseness of the recipe might be good for a gingerbready type version, with crystalised ginger and ground ginger/nutmeg! mmmm yum, want to bake some more already!
