Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 6 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 15 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup honey/maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond) 
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the warm water and the ground flaxseed. Mix and set aside to gel into a “flax egg” for 3-5 minutes. 
  • Pour the rolled oats into a food processor or blender. Pulse until the oats have a flour consistency. 
  • Add the chocolate chips and pulse briefly just to mix them into the batter. Pour batter into the lined  pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges get slightly brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. 
  • Allow blondies to cool completely before removing from pan and slicing into squares. Store in fridge in an airtight container or individual wrap them and freeze. 

Notes

  • Prefer to avoid nut butter? Try using sunflower seed butter - it is safe for people with nut allergies.
  • Make sure to make more than enough because these blondies don't last long!
