Here’s my recipe for double chocolate chickpea blondies. I found the concept of this recipe a little weird at first but I love the texture and flavour of these little sweet treats. There are so many ways you could vary it- I think these would also be amazing with fresh raspberries, a little extra Nut butter over the top and a sprinkle of flaked almonds. I tried another batch of these with dedicated coconut and dark chocolate (like a Bounty Blondie!) which was also pretty epic!
Take the base recipe and experiment with whatever flavours you fancy! Or stick to the original recipe below with the white and dark chocolate and you won’t be disappointed!
