Protein Packed Blondies

I was craving a sweet treat a few Fridays ago, but wanted to keep things relatively healthy. Solution?
These.
Look like chocolate-brownie-unhealthy goodness don't they?

Nope.

These are protein packed. Vegan. Grain free. All natural. With one crazy ingredient. Chickpeas.

Yup. Chickpeas. I'd seen recipes using this protein packed legume but was skeptical. Well. Skeptical no more!
Easy as could be and seriously healthy. Ingredients you can pronounce and probably have on hand in the kitchen right now.
Don't they look like they're filled with chocolate? Nope. Just PB, banana, chickpeas, syrup, and some pb chips for a treat.
I'm sold on using chickpeas in baked goods. Dare to try?
And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

Thanks for visiting my blog this week!
This recipe comes on my list! Remember the one you gave last year of the salmon and peaches -that was so delicious! Can't wait till peaches come back in the store!

We literally have 5-6 cans of chickpeas from when Jack was on a hummus kick. Now I know how to use them up!
