White Bean Blondies
These White Bean Blondies are healthy, vegan, gluten free, and oh yeah, actually delicious! Full of white beans, oats, maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon, and a few chocolate chips! SO easy! And I promise you can't taste the beans. :)
Servings: 9 people
- 1 (15 oz) can great northern white beans drained and rinsed
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips make sure they’re vegan if you’re vegan
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips for topping, make sure they’re vegan if you’re vegan
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts for topping
- Vanilla ice cream for topping, make sure it's vegan if you’re vegan

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease 9 slots of a standard 12 slot non-stick muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
Place beans, vinegar, applesauce, oil, vanilla, maple syrup, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into your food processor.
Process until very smooth.
Remove blade, then stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup walnuts.
Fill each of the 9 slots with 1/4 cup batter.
Top with remaining walnuts and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes.*
Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 20 minutes.
Remove from pan and serve!
Top with ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Don’t top with ice cream or maple syrup if doing this. :)
Take 5 seconds to . We greatly appreciate it!
*I like these at 11 minutes, so they’re really soft and fudge-y. If you like them more cake-y, cook them longer. Leftovers are great warmed up in the microwave.
Nutritional information does not include ice cream or maple syrup drizzle. If you want to cut more calories, they're only 200 calories/serving if you leave off the additional 2 tablespoons chocolate/walnuts, but I highly recommend leaving them on for flavor and texture. :)
