Chickpea Pumpkin Blondies

This tasty dessert is hiding something.  Under all that pumpkin goodness is a healthy serving of chickpeas, but you would never know it!

Chickpeas are a fantastic source of dietary fiber as well as plant-based protein. One cup contains nearly 10 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein, making these blondies as healthy as they are delicious. 



  • 15.5 ounces chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a food processor.
  3. With a wooden spoon, fold the mixture to mix in any unincorporated parts.
  4. Line a 7 ½" x 9 ½" (or similar size) baking dish with baking paper.
  5. Spread the mixture in the pan. Top with any additions you like, i.e. walnuts.
  6. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
