Have you tried the Michael Phelps diet? Because I’m starting to think I’m on it… Decadent desserts are taking over my life.
Not like that’s a bad thing, of course, I sort of welcome it 😉
Kinda like how I welcomed these blondies into my mouth kitchen.
Lately, all I’ve wanted are some darn good, buttery, sugary blondies. Except I don’t want the butter, the sugar and the guilt that go along with one, or in my case, three (oh, I can never stop at one). I set out to healthify a blondie recipe, but after two failed attempts I cheated and took my black bean brownie recipe
and swapped a couple ingredients. I used chickpeas instead of black beans and oat flour instead of cocoa powder and quinoa flour. The result? Aaahmazing
! These blondies satisfied my cravings in every way possible, they were absolutely delicious.
Chewy, sweet, buttery and… healthy? Oh yes. It’s like a nutrition bomb hiding in a sinful-looking and sinful-tasting package.
I don’t feel bad about eating three in a row one bit. In fact, I’m proud of myself for indulging healthfully 😀

I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice
. But, I understand not having a recipe here can be frustrating. So, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I'll show you all the ingredients I use in the recipe. That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
