Last night I revisited the “Tone It Up” nutrition guide in search of a healthy meal. I stumbled across their Blondie Muffins and I’m so glad I did. I was a bit hesitant to make these muffins knowing that the main ingredient is garbanzo beans but I went for it anyway. Let me tell you, they’re the perfect alternative to a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie or any dessert. I modified the recipe by adding chocolate chunks and ended up creating these Chickpea Blondie Chocolate Chunk Muffins.
I will admit, I included the chocolate chunks to balance out the beans. Although after having one bite, I definitely didn’t need them. These Chickpea Blondie Chocolate Chunk Muffins are by no means dry but instead they’re velvety like cake.
I know I’m late to the game, especially for all you vegans out there but I cannot wait to try substituting flour with garbanzo beans and create more delicious snacks. Next on the menu is chickpea banana muffins!
