Did you know typical blondies are made with sticks of butter, overly processed white flour, lots of eggs, and a little too much sugar?

Not these bad boys!

These healthified blondies are made with a base of garbanzo beans (don’t be scared, you can’t taste ’em!), applesauce to replace the butter, and all natural erythritol plus some organic stevia extract to replace the sugar.

For the brownie topping, we’ve got a mix of peanut butter and coconut oil, which is mixed with cocoa powder to make it “brownie-like.”  Then, some roasted peanuts get stirred in for some crunch!

  1. Love these blondies Jessica!! 🙂 I LOVE anything peanut. Also, these are definitely healthy enough to be breakfast…so yeah…;) Imma eat those!!!

  2. I definitely eat more than 5 oz. of nuts in a week…especially because my work office supplies some of the best! They have these Smokehouse flavored Blue Diamond almonds and they are AH-mazing. And I have cashews as my little snack on the way home from work most days. 

    • Lol, I think I eat more than 5 ounces too, Kaylin! Smokehouse flavored almonds sound really good, yum! 🙂

      Mmm, those look so good! I would have never thought that those brownie ingredients would bake into the brownie layer! 🙂

  3. These look AMAZING! I bet they taste even better than they look!
