Chickpea Nut Butter Blondies
Aside from how delicious these are, these are SO easy to make. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already, so why not give them a go?!
Adding chickpeas to brownies is a great way to increase protein & fiber. Chickpeas contain soluble fiber, which can help improve bowel function and overall gut health.
Here are the dEATS...
¼ cup almond flour (can also sub for regular flour if desired)
¼ cup maple syrup
1 can rinsed + drained chickpeas
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda

1 cup nut butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F

Bake at 350 F for 20-22 minutes
Let cool for ~ 10 min and enjoy!
