Chickpea Walnut Blondies

  • Author: Tara Deal Rochford
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 16 blondies 1x


Chickpeas combine with nutbutter (peanut butter, almond butter and sun butter all work here!) to make one of my new favorite sweet treats…Chickpea Walnut Blondies!



1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

½ cup almond butter or peanut butter*

¼ cup maple syrup

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp neutral cooking oil

1/4 tsp salt

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ cup chocolate chips

¼ cup walnuts


Preheat the oven to 350 ̊F. Spray an 8-inch square pan with oil or nonstick spray.

Place all ingredients except the chocolate chips and walnuts in a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

Fold the chocolate chips and walnuts into the thick batter.

Bake the batter in the prepared baking pan for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set. You can allow the blondies to cool, or dig in while warm and gooey!

Cut into 16 bars and enjoy.


*You can sub Sunbutter and omit the walnuts if you are preparing for someone with a nut allergy.
