Gluten Free, Vegan White Bean Peanut Butter Blondies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip White Bean Blondies
Recipe by:  GlutenFreeJerseyGirl
Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Eat To Live, Nutritarian



These vegan, gluten free blondies are super moist and filled with only nutritious ingredients.  I eat these for breakfast or as a special treat!  Because of the white beans, they are packed with protein which makes this a perfect breakfast food or snack after a workout.   If I didn't tell you, you would not even know there were beans in this recipe.  My blondies are healthy and be warned, very addictive!   I love to create recipes without eggs and flour and wanted to try something different.  I am so happy with how these came out.  Give them a try.  I hope you like them!

Ingredients: 

1 can white beans
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon chia seeds
 1 tablespoon coconut nectar (or honey)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 scraped vanilla bean (optional)
dash of sea salt
1/4 cup allergen free dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

Directions:

Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips together.
Spread evenly into an 8x8 greased glass dish
Spread chocolate chips over the top and press down into the batter.

Bake at 300 degrees for approx. 45-60 minutes. (Oven times may vary)

Note:  Be sure to cool completely before cutting.

Enjoy ...

I like to have mine with a scoop of frozen banana ice cream and topped with caramel date syrup!
