Snickerdoodle Blondie Bites

You would never know that these moist and fudgy blondie bites are so good for you. These cinnamon-y blondies are vegan and pack a sneaky healthy punch because they’re made with ground up chick peas. I also made them with crunchy peanut butter, so they had bits of peanuts in them, but you can easily opt for a different kind of nut butter and it’s only a small component of the recipe.

Snickerdoodle Blondie Bites (taken from Chocolate Covered Katie and altered slightly)

Makes 36 bite sized blondies (you can cut them as large as you like)

  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained and rinsed)
  • 3 tbsp nut butter (or other fat source)
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • heaping 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup ground flax (20g)
  • 2 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare an 8×8 pan by lining with parchment paper and spraying with non-stick spray.

Remove transparent shells of chick peas and blend peas in a food processor until very smooth. Mix blended chick peas with remaining ingredients until completely combined and scoop into pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. You want the blondies to look a little undercooked when you take them out, because they’ll firm up as they cool, and you don’t want them to get hard.
