Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Blondies

A good friend sent us this recipe that originally came from and I must say, I think they hit a homerun.  If you enjoy peanut butter cookies, but need gluten free you have to try these.

  • Canola oil nonstick cooking sprayBlondies dessert bars Gluten Free
  • 1 can 15 ounce chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup all natural almond butter or peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar ( honey if not going vegan)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup vegan or regular semi-sweet chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling
  • Kosher or sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350⁰ F.
  2. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with canola oil nonstick cooking spray
  3. Add all ingredients except semi-sweet chocolate chips into a food processor or blender and puree.
  4. Fold in ⅓ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips into batter.
  5. Spread batter evenly in prepared baking pan
  6. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of semi-sweet chocolate chips on the top.
  7. Place pan into preheated oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean and edges are a tiny bit brown.  Batter may look underdone, but baking longer will cause them to dry out.
  8. Cool pan for 20 minutes on wire rack.
  9. Sprinkle with Kosher or sea salt then cut into squares.

Makes 16 blondies.

Adding a beaten egg to the batter will make them more cake like, but they will no longer be vegan.
