Ingredients

Wet ingredients

  • One 15oz can (265g) chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup (120ml) plant-based milk
  • ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • cup (80g) nut butter or seed butter of choice (I used cashew butter)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Dry ingredients

  • ½ cup (100g) xylitol (or sugar of choice)
  • ¾ cup (90g) ground almonds (almond flour) (*see notes)
  • 4 tbsp (28g) ground flax seeds
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • cup (60g) dairy-free chocolate chips + more for the top

Instructions

  • I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe. Check the video in the blog post for easy visual instructions.
  • Put all wet ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix until smooth.
  • Add all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) and mix again.
  • Now add the chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
  • Preheat oven to 360°F(180°C).
  • Spoon the batter into a lined baking pan. My baking dish measures 9"x6" (23 x 15 cm).
  • Top with more chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.
  • Bake in the oven for about 25-30 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!

Notes

 
  • 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 (don’t ask me how I know, haha).
