Decadent Dark Chocolate Blondies

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes


  • 1 15 oz can of garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained) (This is about 1.5 cups)
  • 10 Medjool Dates (Be sure to take out the pits!!!)
  • 3 TBSP coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3-1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks


  1. Set oven to 350F and grease an 8x8 pan.

  2. Whip out that food processor and combine chickpeas, dates, vanilla, salt, and coconut oil. Blend until a smooth batter forms.

  3. Add chocolate to food processor and pulse if you prefer smaller pieces more scattered throughout the batter. Otherwise, fold in chocolate chunks by hand.

  4. Pour batter evenly into baking dish. Optional to sprinkle a few pinches of sea salt on top.

  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are a darker brown. Be sure to insert a toothpick in the center to ensure it comes out clean.

  6. Due to the ingredients used, the finished product may look a tad undercooked. That is normal! Let sit on a cooling rack for 25-30 mine before serving and enjoying!
