These simple vegan blondies are made with chickpeas, almond flour, and dairy-free chocolate chips. They are super gooey, soft, fudgy, moist, rich, and yummy! This blondie recipe is gluten-free, grain-free, protein-rich, dairy-free, egg-free, healthy, and can be made nut-free!
I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe. Check the video in the blog post for easy visual instructions.Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line a baking pan (my pan measures 9"x6" / 23 x 15 cm) with parchment paper.
Process all wet ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Add all dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and mix again (don't overmix though).
Now add the chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with more chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.
Bake in the oven for about 25-35 minutes (it can take some minutes more or less, depending on your oven and the size of your baking dish). I have a gas oven and baked them for about 27 minutes, and they were still a bit underbaked (which I love though!).
Let cool and cut into bars. They will be still soft at first, but firm up more once cooled down. Enjoy!
Almond flour: You can use any ground nuts instead of ground almonds/almond flour. For a nut-free version, try ground hemp seeds or ground shredded unsweetened coconut. I wouldn't recommend coconut flour since it contains less fat than almond flour and furthermore absorbs a lot of liquid.
Any nut butter like peanut butter, cashew butter works fine. For a nut-free version, use coconut butter. I wouldn't recommend sunflower seed butter as it will turn the blondies green unless you leave out the baking powder and baking soda.
Sugar: Any granulated sugar like organic cane sugar, coconut sugar, etc. will work. I used Xylitol, but you can probably also use Erythritol.
