Healthy blondie recipe:

Total time: 30 minutes

Yield: 8×8 pan

  • 1/2 can white beans (drained, rinsed, and pureed)
  • 1 1/4 cups whole grain oats (pureed to a fine grain)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (solid form)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk (may substitute for any milk)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (may substitute for any nut butter)
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine pureed white beans, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, coconut milk, and almond butter in a large bowl. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients (oats, almond meal, baking powder, chia  seeds). Once everything is evenly mixed, fold in the chocolate chunks. Scoop the batter into a well greased pan. Before placing into the oven make sure to sprinkle the sea salt on top. Bake for around 15 minutes. You want the blondies to be slightly underdone seeing as the heat from the pan will continue to cook them once out of the oven. All thats left to do is slice and enjoy while warm!

 

Note from the baker: These blondies are the perfect option when you don’t want to break the diet, but are craving something slightly sweet. This recipe may not be for those who are used to very sweet, decadent desserts. However, I find they make the perfect on-the-go breakfast option!
