Isn’t it amazing what you can do with chickpeas?

They’ve got to be one of my all-time favourite ingredients. Just think of all the delicious things you can make; countless types of hummus, curries & strews, roasted with spices and even desserts.

I can’t claim this delicious recipe as my original idea, as I spotted a few chickpea blondie recipes on Pinterest and decided I had to give them a go–And I love the result. Super peanutty with chunks of delicious chocolate running through them.

These blondies are incredibly easy to make. You literally just need to blend and bake. The hardest thing is not trying to cut them up or eat them before they’ve completely cooled. This is important, as they can be crumbly.

And of course they are not only vegan but gluten & refined sugar free. I find that its often the most simple of ingredients if given the proper care and attention that become the tastiest meals.

The humble & versatile chickpea really shines here.

  1. It’s in the oven but how do I tell when it’s done? At 25 minutes, it is still so soft and jiggly. I put it back for another 10 now that I opened the oven door and let the heat out. The batter tasted good!

  2. Hi Niki,

    I just wanted to say I made these last night (needed a quick chocolate/sweet fix). Not only were they quick an easy to make but also delicious too. Yet another of your brilliant recipes.

    Thank you so much for sharing x

  3. These sound really good. I am not familiar with how you program your oven temperature….do you know what the equivalent would be for degrees Fahrenheit? I’m think probably around 350°F ….?


  4. What a great and easy recipe! The chickpea really is a wonderful ingredient and has so many health benefits too! Some mini marshmallow pieces might do well in this recipe as well!
