Salted Tahini Chickpea Blondies

Updated: Apr 14

You’ll never bean-leave that these Salted Tahini Chickpea Blondies are packed with chickpeas. Bad puns aside, chickpeas make these blondies fudgy and moist - plus, it means that these are packed with protein, healthy fats and fiber, so they’re the perfect afternoon pick me up!

These blondies come together in the food processor or blender - that means one bowl, no cleaning, and more time to stuff you face with bean-y goodness.

Don't get me wrong. I love a good classic blondie full of plain flour and white sugar. And chickpeas, black beans, and cauliflower have their own special place on my plate...but I also tend to eat these at any time of the day. Bean blondie for breakfast? Why not! It's basically hummus, but more exciting.

TIP: These are baked in a loaf pan so that every piece has a bit of that coveted corner-edge... but feel free to double and put into an 8x8inch square pan!
