Secret-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Blondies

These blondies are like eating chocolate chip cookie dough…in blondie form.

Oh, and did I mention they’re actually healthy?

Thanks to a special secret ingredient, these chocolate chip blondies are packed full of protein and fiber, yet have the decadent taste and texture of cookie dough. They are only 100 calories with 5 grams of fat, 10 grams of carbs, and 5 grams of protein each + only 4 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of fiber! For a complete step-by-step tutorial, watch my latest YouTube video here.

Yes, the base of these blondies is BEANS. I’ve never used beans in one of my recipes before (all three current e-books are completely bean-free), so I was excited to do some experimenting! You might think beans in a dessert sounds strange, but I promise you cannot taste them at all. They simply contribute a wonderful texture and their neutral flavor takes on the delicious taste of chocolate chip cookie dough 🙂

Consider this a SNEAK PEAK inside a new, upcoming e-cookbook full of healthy, low-calorie blondie and brownie recipes. I had fun experimenting with beans in this recipe, but don’t worry, there will be tons of recipes in the e-book that do NOT contain beans. And, as always, all current e-book owners will receive an exclusive discount on the new e-book when it is released, along with exclusive new recipes that come out up until then!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Blondies (serves: 16 – 100 calories 5 F / 10 C / 5 P each)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 15 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed (~250 g after draining and rinsing) (I have tested this recipe using both Navy beans and Butter beans, but feel free to experiment with other varieties)
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free oatmeal (28 g)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (60 g)
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed butter or coconut oil (or half of each!) (56 g total)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (56 g) (Slap Nutrition discount code: SARAH)
  • 1/4 cup baking stevia (8 g)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut palm sugar (12 g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5 ml)
  • 6 Tablespoons chocolate chips (90 g)

DIRECTIONS:

For a complete step-by-step tutorial, watch my latest YouTube video here.

Preheat oven to 325 F. Add beans, oatmeal, applesauce, and butter/coconut oil to a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix) or food processor. Blend until combined. Add the remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and blend until very smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Spay an 8×8 glass pan with non-stick spray. Spoon in the batter, and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Bake for 13-15 minutes, being very careful not to over-bake. Blondies should still appear slightly underdone. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Refrigerating will help them to set sooner. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days (if they last that long!)

Enjoy!
