Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Friday, March 13, 2015

I've always sort of lived at school. It's not unusual for me to eat 3 meals at school, to exercise at school, to ___ at school (fill in the blank how you please). This past week, however, was a total curve ball. I was averaging 13 hours a day at school, and I loved/hated every minute of it.

It's not until your life is completely stripped of the simple things that you noticed how important they are. While this could easily turn into some deep and philosophical blog post, I'm actually talking about food. Food that involves peanut butter and chocolate chips and chickpeas (hopefully I didn't just lose you). Because when you live at school, you don't have time to do the simple things like make these awesome blondies.

 

I'm well aware that baking a pan full of blondies that I could eat in one sitting won't solve all my problems, but they're a great place to start. 


Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained and rinsed) 
A pinch of baking soda (about 1/8 tsp)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar or sugar substitute (I've used/liked both)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup peanut butter (almond butter is good too!
1/2 (or way more) cup chocolate chips 

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan and set aside. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add in chocolate chips/any other add ons. Bake for 25-30 (depending on your oven) minutes.

    1. Also, I just saw that baking powder is listed twice ... should 1 of the ingredients be baking soda instead?

  3. I literally DO live at school with being in college, but since it's home, it's obviously totally different haha! Back in high school, spending all those hours at school on days where we had a track meet or something that night was exhausting. Hope you're being able to get rested and refreshed at home this weekend!
