I love snickerdoodle everything. Cupcakes, cookies, snack balls, blondies, just give me all the snickerdoodle. This blondie recipe has been on my list for MONTHS as an idea for the blog. You guys know I love healthified baked goods, and this one is no exception. There is a secret ingredient!
Now, don’t freak out yet. I’m sure you’ve heard of putting black beans in brownies (like I did here), and if you have ever made black bean brownies, you know they are delicious. I promise it is the same things with these CHICKPEA blondies.
Yep, I’m going there. I obviously didn’t come up with this genius idea, there are lots of baked good recipes with chickpeas in them out in the interwebs. And I promise, you don’t even taste the chickpeas! They are husband approved (victory!), and I didn’t even tell him that there were chickpeas in there until after he had already tasted it. That’s how you know they are legit.
These snickerdoodle blondie bars are only sweetened with unrefined coconut sugar, and I even threw in some almond butter for extra fudginess. The texture is like a fudgy brownie, and I am SO happy with the way they turned out.
Make these for your friends and I promise they won’t even know that there is extra fiber and nutrients because of the chickpeas. Just wait to tell them what’s in it until afterwards 😉
