These pictures just do not do these blondies justice.
I am obsessed.
They are so good, I have no words except, GARBANZO!
Who ever thought of subbing flour with something healthy like beans, IS A GENIUS! I would like to buy them a drink and shake their hand!
Now take garbanzo beans, blend them up and add peanut butter! But wait, not just any peanut butter, JUSTIN’S HONEY PEANUT BUTTER! If you have never had it, you are doing yourself and unjust. Go to Whole Foods right now and buy a jar (I found them on sale last week for 3.99 at Whole Foods) On a side note, have you ever Google Image searched Justin from Justin’s Nut Butter? Go now! He’s a hottie!
Here, I will just do it for you!
You’re welcome! 🙂
So back to the blondies, you can sub garbanzo beans for flour in just about any recipe. I made some delicious blondies this week and they satisfied every sweet craving I had!
- 1 Can Organic Garbanzo Beans
- 1/2 Cup Justin’s Honey Nut Butter (any natural peanut butter will work but seriously, Justin’s is legit)
- 1/3 Cup Agave
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Power and 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Chocolate Espresso Drizzle
- 1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips or for Vegan Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
- 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
- 1 Packet Starbucks Instant Italian Roast Coffee (Or any instant Coffee but Starbucks is micro-ground and chemical free)
Preheat oven to 350. Depending on how thick you want your bars to be, prepare a small to large cake pan with parchment paper. (I used the medium size one so my could have thinner bars)
Rinse beans thoroughly and blend them up in a food processor or blender. Add remaining ingredients. Before pouring the mix into the pan, take a spoonful and store it in the freezer to eat later, because seriously it taste like cookie dough
Pour mix into pan and bake for 14-20 mins. Depends how thin you made your blondies. Just check it with a toothpick and if it comes out clean it’s done. 🙂
While they cooling melt your chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler. (small sauce pan on top of small pot of boiling water) add the instant coffee and stir well.
Drizzle melted chocolate mixture over your blondies and place in the fridge to cool.
