Snowday Chickpea Blondies

This morning I woke up and saw that nature (and my car) was covered in a thick sheet of snow. ย My email inbox was flooded with alerts from my internship program notifying us that we are not in session today due to the weather conditions (yay! Snowday!). ย Snowdays are a perfect time to relax and in my case, get creative in the kitchen. ย I decided to whip up these chickpea blondies after feeling inspired by my blackbean brownies that I made a few weeks ago. ย If it’s snowing where you are and you’re feeling adventurous, feel free to try these delicious, fiber-packed blondies for a treat ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 15 oz. canned chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini vegan chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life brand)


Preheat the oven to 350ยฐF. ย Use non-stick spray to spray a 9×9″ baking pan. ย Set aside the baking pan as the oven pre-heats. ย In a food processor, add all ingredients except chocolate chips. ย Using the food processor, mix all ingredients until everything is uniform. ย Turn off the food processor, add chocolate chips and using a spoon mix the chocolate chips into the batter. ย Using a spoon or spatula, scoop the batter into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. ย Remove from oven, allow to cool, and enjoy!
