Pipe Dream #275: To Reduce Wrinkling – Gluten-Free Chickpea Blondies

chickpea bars 3

Cracked and crinkled and occasionally containing a whole chickpea. Just another riff on all the blender bars I’ve been doing lately. They are GF, so there’s that.

These were average, that is all. Why not make these, instead?

Gluten-Free Chickpea Blondies

Adapted from Ambitious Kitchen

1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey or agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
milk or water, if needed to make the batter blendable
1/3 cup chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons
kosher salt, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 8×8 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. You can also line with parchment if you’re into it.

In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients except the milk and chocolate chips and process until batter is smooth. You may need to add a little bit of milk or water to make the batter blendable, but it should remain thick. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.

Spread the batter evenly in prepared pan then sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and edges are a tiny bit brown. Do not overbake. Cool pan for 20 minutes, then sprinkle with sea salt.
