These chickpea chocolate chip blondies taste like a sinfully delicious dessert but are actually flourless, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free, and HEALTHY!
One of my twins’ sweet college friends whom I consider one of my “other daughters,” made these chickpea chocolate chip blondies for the family when she was spending Easter weekend with us. Maddy is from Charleston and lives quite a distance from home, so we insisted that she stay with us. Maddy spent the entire weekend helping me cook for Easter and also whipping up healthy, yummy treats like these blondies. I was in Heaven having such a savvy little helper in the kitchen:-)
When I took the first bite of these blondies, I asked Maddy immediately to send me the recipe…..I knew I’d be making these again and again. She sent me the link to JoyFoodSunshine, and she told me that she made the blondies per the recipe except instead of coconut sugar, she used Swerve. (I had coconut sugar in the pantry; she just didn’t see it, so she used the Swerve.)
Swerve sugar substitute: I keep Swerve on hand for baked goods like these blondies and these Keto Pecan Pie Squares. Swerve is sold in most grocery stores and is the #1 selling sugar substitute on amazon.
Substitutions: There are several substitutions you can make with this recipe.
- Swerve sugar substitute OR your choice of sugar (coconut is an unrefined option)
- honey OR maple syrup
- almond milk OR dairy
- chickpeas OR cannellini (white beans)
Make ahead: These chickpea chocolate chip blondies will keep well for several days in the fridge in an airtight container (they need to be refrigerated). They can be eaten cold, but if you want them warm and gooey~put them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. They taste just made and SO decadent:-)
If you make these blondies, I’d LOVE to hear what you think, so please leave comments at the end of the post. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Hoping you have a joyful, blessed & savvy day!!!
