These vegan chickpea blondies are the perfect fudgy dessert that is close to having a deep dish cookie. Easy to make and only 9 ingredients!


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp organic brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 15.5 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips plus extra for topping


  1. Set oven to 350F. Place all oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a high speed food processor  or blender and process it into a flour.
  2. Add in chickpeas and remaining liquid ingredients except chocolate chips into the food processor or high speed blender with tamper and process until batter is smooth.
  3. Scrap down sides to allow even blending.
  4. Once the batter is smooth, fold in chocolate chips then spoon out the batter into a 8×8 baking tray and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Allow blondies to completely cool before cutting into them.


You can sub out the peanut butter for an allergy friendly option or a different nut butter. Opt for natural nut butters that have a runny consistency for best results.

Feel free to leave the vanilla extract out if you don’t have it on hand.

Feel free to swap out maple syrup for a different liquid sweetener.

I have not tested sugar substitutes in this recipe, so test at your own discretion.
