Chewy Vegan Blondie

As you guys know I have a major sweet tooth. I love desserts and as I am focusing on living a healthier lifestyle. I’m always looking for a healthy alternative to our every day treats. For the past couple of years, I’ve been seeing recipes that include chickpeas, black beans, white beans and honestly I was really skeptical about having beans in my dessert at first. To be honest with you, one of the things that convinced to give it a try was having the breakfast cake. That cake is so yummy so moist and I said you know what if I’m going to give zucchini a chance. I should try giving beans in my dessert as well. When I was making the recipe, and I was putting the batter in the pan. I decided to try a sample off of the spoon. Honestly, I said to myself we’re on to something with this recipe. I placed the batter in the oven and I want to say within 30 to 40 minutes the recipe was complete. It was so delicious I made again that same week let me just be honest. I’m like completely out of stock of chickpeas now that I've been making this recipe so often. I’ve made this recipe several times With a couple of variations. This recipe is so yummy that my meat eater spouse loves it as well. And that only did he ask to try it. He also asked for seconds. How cool is that?! This is one of those recipes that I will have in rotation. I love that it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients it also doesn’t require a lot of measuring which I love.
