Chickpea Blondies | South Wake Raleigh Moms

Feb 15, 2018 | Recipes

Let me start by saying that you can’t taste chickpea AT ALL in this! I was expecting to and was pleasantly surprised. Instead you get a perfectly gooey mix of chocolate and peanut butter. I came across this recipe from @hydeparkmoms and I’m so glad I did so I can share this goodness with all of you.
Go ahead and give this recipe a try and tag @southwakeraleighmoms when you do! This just might be a new staple for you and the family when that sweet tooth hits.

  • 1 15oz can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350
  2. Dump all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Mix until smooth.
  3. Add in chocolate chips and stir to combine
  4. Use a small/square baking dish, or small cast iron skillet *The cast iron gives it more of a thinner cookie texture than baking it like you would regular blondies*
  5. Grease your baking dish or line with parchment paper

  7. Bake for 45 min to 1 hour. The top will start cracking and the sides will turn golden brown.
  8. Let it sit for 25+ minutes before cutting!
