(15 oz)

1/2 cup

1/2 Tbsp
Baking Powder

Author's Notes

I highly recommend using a food processor. It will definitely make your life easier.

Blondies can be stored at room temperature for 2-3 days. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week and can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Both canned chickpeas and chickpeas cooked from scratch can be used.

Cooking Instructions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 2
Soak your Pitted Dates (1 1/2 cup) in hot water for about 20 minutes to soften them. If your dates are moist enough, you may omit this step.
Step 3
Place the Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (1/2 cup) in a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse until flour-like consistency forms. Depending on your blender or food processor, it should take less than 1 minute.
Step 4
Add in the Peanut Butter (1/2 cup), Chickpeas (2 can), Baking Powder (2 teaspoon), Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon), Salt (1 pinch), and dates in the food processor or blender. Pulse until a smooth cookie dough texture forms. Add in some plant-based milk or water, a tablespoon at a time if the batter is too dry.
Step 5
Transfer the batter into a greased 8x8-inch baking pan. Smooth it out using a spatula.
Step 6
Bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden or a toothpick comes out clean.
Step 7
Let it set in the pan for 10-15 minutes before transferring it to a cooling tray.
Step 8
When the blondies are cooled to room temperature, spread the Peanut Butter (to taste) and top it with Peanuts (1 handful), if using. Slice and serve.
