Chickpeas in a dessert? Yes 🙂 it is not as weird combination as you might think. All these lovely ingredients-almond butter, chocolate, honey and chickpeas work really well together and tingle your tastebuds ;). Chickpeas give them lovely rich texture, plus protein and I think you will really enjoy them. These blondies are gluten free and dairy free, if you use dairy free chocolate chips. Almond butter can be pretty pricey to buy, so I would recommend to make your own. All you need is almonds and high speed  food processor. Process till turns into almond butter. If you want to make them dairy free use dairy free chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. What can be better than to have a healthy and tasty homemade dessert… 🙂
