You’re like, wait what?
White bean blondies?!
- What the heck?
- Ew. Gross.
But you guys. I swear on everything that these.do.not.taste.like.beans. They’re based off my black bean brownies recipe, which also, magically, does not taste like beans.
I challenge you to give these to someone that doesn’t know what’s in these and I’m 99.999999999% sure that they’ll never know that
- These have beans in them
- They’re healthy
Why? Because I did exactly that to Trevor and he had NO idea.
[insert evil laugh here]
I am definitely not someone who always eats healthy desserts.
Because, sometimes, a woman just needs some puppy chow, ya know?! And I truly believe that you can eat anything you want in moderation.
All that being said, it’s January, and I know I’m not alone in trying to make healthier choices, but DARN IT, my sweet tooth is outta control.
White bean blondies!
- They’re quick and easy to make – great, because when that sugar craving comes in, in comes in STRONG.
- They’re definitely healthier – protein from the white beans, a touch of coconut oil to keep these from being gummy, plus, they’re gluten free and vegan!
- They’re actually delicious – they taste like cinnamon, maple, and chocolate!
Have I convinced you to make these white bean blondies yet?
You’ll start by placing white beans, vinegar, unsweetened applesauce, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into your food processor.
Process until verrrrrrry smooth.
Stir in just a few chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
That’s it! Just bake ’em up, cool, and serve!
While these white bean blondies are fabulous as is. I highly recommend serving them warm with a scoop of ice cream and an extra drizzle of maple syrup if you’re feeling dangerous. 😉
Warm, cozy, very slightly chocolatey, with an incredible, moist, rich texture . . .
Easy, healthy, bean filled desserts have never been quite this delicious. 😉
