CHOCOLATE CHIP CHICKPEA BLONDIES WITH SEA SALT
Dessert! Did I get your attention? If you are looking for a sweet treat that doesn’t have all the sugar or processed stuff, then check out this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen.
Instead of sugar, you use maple syrup to sweeten it up. There is no flour in the recipe either, so it is gluten free.
The blondies are vegan, so there are no eggs or dairy. Just make sure you buy chocolate chips that have no milk in them. We like to buy the chips from Trader Joe’s.
To say the dessert is delicious would be an understatement. Everyone in our family and I do mean all 7, loved the blondies. Do yourself favor, make at least a double batch.
Enjoy this salty sweet dessert and that vegan thing.
