These gooey Cookie Dough Blondies have only 7 ingredients, are gluten free, grain free, dairy free and easily vegan (depending on your chocolate chips).

They’re a great source of plant based protein (10g each) and dietary fibre, so have 1 for breakfast 🙂

  • 1 can (398ml.) chickpeas, rinsed & drained
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
