Best ever gluten-free pumpkin spice blondies

Not going to lie, these pumpkin spice chickpea blondies are absolutely amazing. The texture is incredible: the center is slightly underdone and every bite melts in your mouth. These chocolate chip pumpkin spice blondies are so gooey, moist, and delicious. I could not resist going back to the kitchen every few hours for another!

I am not exaggerating when I say, my roommate and I finished an entire batch in less than 24 hours. Who can resist a perfectly gooey, chocolate chip blondie that tastes like pumpkin pie?

I must say, I do love baking with chickpeas. It sounds weird and ~way too healthy~ but seriously they create such a very soft and fudgy texture. I promise you, you CANNOT even taste them. I refuse to eat desserts that taste like vegetables. Because then is it even a dessert at that point? The answer is clearly no. If you are going to enjoy a dessert, do it right!

I mean I do call myself Healthful BLONDIE, so I have to have a delicious blondie recipe! And, you know what, this might just be one of the best ones yet. Seriously, if you like pumpkin spice and Fall flavors, these blondies are 100% for you!

Healthy pumpkin spice blondies that are rich, moist, chocolatey, and incredibly tasty. The perfect way to sneak some veggies into your day too!

How to make healthy pumpkin spice chickpea blondies

These delicious, fudgy pumpkin spice blondies are not only super nutritious, but they are also super easy to make. Think one bowl, easy cleanup, and no hassle!

To start, preheat your oven and lightly grease or line an 8” x 8” tin with parchment paper. I like to line and grease my pan by cutting a little piece of parchment paper, placing it into the bottom of the pan, and spraying it with nonstick spray. This will male it so easy to take your healthy pumpkin spice chocolate chip blondies out of the pan.

Next, using a colander, drain and rinse your can of chickpeas under COLD water for at least 30 seconds. Gently pat them dry and add them to the food processor.

Now, it is time to add the rest of the ingredients – excluding the chocolate chips – into a food processor. Blend the mixture until completely smooth. This should take about 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Looking for other tasty dessert recipes?

Once completely smooth and silky, remove the blade from the food processor and hand fold in your chocolate chips. Remember to save a few to sprinkle on top before baking!

Using a spatula, evenly spread the batter into the greased tin and sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.

Bake you delicious, gooey pumpkin spice blondies and let cool a little before serving.

Enjoy! Easy, healthy vegan pumpkin blondies made with almond flour, chickpeas and other wholesome ingredients. It’s the perfect Fall dessert!

How to store healthy pumpkin spice chickpea blondies?

These blondies honestly do not last more than a few days in my apartment! To be honest, they didn’t last more than 24 hours. However, for best results, store in a covered container for 3 -5 days at room temperature. You can even store in the fridge for up to 10 days!
