Gluten-Free Blondies Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (if canned, drain and rinse them well)
  2. 3 tablespoons cacao butter (can substitute any nut butter, coconut oil, or dairy butter)
  3. 1/3 of a banana
  4. 1/4 cup ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
  5. 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  6. 3/4 cup powdered stevia
  7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  10. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  11. 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice blend, or cinnamon
  12. 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Directions

Add all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend or process until the batter is very smooth. If you're using add-ins, stir them in now. Either enjoy as an unbaked dip, or spread batter into a parchment lined or greased 8" x 8" pan and bake in a 350-degree oven for 30-35 minutes — do not overbake. When cooled, cut into 18 squares.
