Chocolate Chickpea Blondies (Vegan & Gluten-Free)
15 ounces (1 can) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping the sides a few times.
Pour the batter into the pan and stir in the chocolate chips.
Bake for 25 minutes.
This moist dessert isn't overly sweet and offers a great protein source along with chocolate goodness. A nice treat for kids in gluten-free and vegan households, as well as everyone else who wants to cut down on their sugar intake!
