The most delicious healthy blondie recipe EVER

I mean I do call myself Healthful BLONDIE for a couple of reasons….

This blondie recipe is out of this world tasty! It is so good that I usually have to bake two batches so that they all don’t disappear on the first day.

I love enjoying this scrumptious vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free dessert after dinner and even as an afternoon snack sometimes (shhhhh)! I like to add a scoop of ice cream to elevate this dessert even more.

The texture is truly divine — melt in your mouth divine!

So what’s the big hype around baking with chickpeas these days?

I love baking with chickpeas. You’ll see very soon. They create a very soft, fudgy texture. And, best of all, you CANNOT even taste them. I promise. I refuse to eat desserts that taste like vegetables or have no sweetness to them. If you are going to enjoy a sweet treat, do it right!

Ingredients you’ll need to make the BEST healthy blondies

You’ll need a few ingredients to get this recipe going! But you know me, I am all about simplicity and ease, so don’t worry, you won’t need to go to the supermarket and buy a lot of expensive baking ingredients. This lists is really simple:

How to store this delicious treat?

These blondies are a family favorite and do not last more than a few days! But, for best results, store in a covered container for 3 -5 days at room temperature. You may freeze up to 2 months.

Healthy chickpea blondies that are vegan, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and gluten-free! This sweet treat is perfect for all occasions and is a family favorite. 


  • 1 (15oz) can of chickpeas
  • 6 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar *
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour **
  • 4 Tbsp almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and lightly grease or line an 8” x 8” tin with parchment paper. 
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas under COLD water for at least 30 seconds. Gently pat dry.
  3. Add all ingredients – except the chocolate chips – into a food processor. Blend until completely smooth (somewhere between 30-45 seconds).
  4. Remove blade and hand fold in a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  5. Evenly spread the batter into greased tin. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
  6. Bake for 20-25 mins. 
  7. Let cool before serving, and enjoy!


* SUGAR OPTIONS: I love to bake with coconut sugar. However, if you do not have it in your pantry, you can substitute 1:1 with light brown sugar. 

** FLOUR OPTIONS: If you do not have coconut flour, you can substitute with another tablespoon of almond flour.

    This was such a foolproof recipe and the results were 10/10! I stumbled across this recipe yesterday and was able to make them with everything I already had in my cupboard which was great. The inside texture is super fudgy and everything you’re looking for in a "healthy" blondie. Can’t wait to make these again!
