    These blondies look fantastic! I have never tried baking with chick peas but they are one of my favorite foods so it looks like I will be trying this recipe sometime soon. Thanks for sharing on Friday Favorites.

      They are delicious! I have made these as well as regular chocolate brownies with chickpeas and no one knows the difference :-) It’s so great!

    Those look wonderful! I’d love to try your recipe. I’ve kind of gotten to the point where I’d like to have a healthier alternative, and my kids are even gravitating towards that too. :) Visiting from the Let’s Get Real Blog Hop.
