Allie’s Chick Pea Blondies!

I saw this recipe on Allie’s blog today and knew I just HAD to try these today!! So when I got home from class, I got to work making some Chick Pea Blondies!! Click here for the recipe!!

I did make a few modifications, due to what I had on hand. I made my own oat flour(see below), used 1/2 cup sugar instead of Agave, Vegetable Oil instead of Coconut Oil, and NM PB instead of Almond Butter. I think they turned out so good!! I do want to try making them again with the Agave and Coconut Oil though! And I would definitely cook them in an 8X8 pan because I like thicker blondies! I used an 11X13 pan today and they came out a bit thin, but still super tasty.

All you have to do to make oat flour is blend up some oats! How simple is that?! And why did I not know this before?!?


Oats in the blender ready to go.


And magically in 10 seconds, you have oat flour! Genius!! Haha :)


These turned out so yummy! Just the right amount of sweetness!!




Allie, you hit it right on with these girl!! Totally couldn’t tell there were chick peas in them at all! I love sneaking healthy things in baked goods! The real test will be what the fiancé says about them! Haha. But I give them 2 thumbs up for sure!!


I had this Clif Bar for a snack today during class.


It was ok. Ended up making my tummy hurt a bit. Not really sure why! Maybe I’m getting used to not eating processed things? Who knows…

I wanted something easy and quick for dinner so I made Pasta and Roasted Veggies!!




I roasted some cauliflower with Garlic Salt and Pepper. Yummy! I did end up eating this with ketchup. Weird? Not one bit! Ketchup goes good with EVERYTHING!


And some pasta with Creamy Tomato Sauce! So good!!


And a little glass of Sauv Blanc while cooking and baking! Makes everything just a bit more fun:)


Thanks for all the Nashville tips on my last post!! If you have anymore, keep them coming!!

What is your favorite way to sneak healthy things into foods??

I love sneaking cooked spinach into everything I can! And I am totally loving these Chick Pea Blondies!! Yummy!!


  1. Duh! I wish I would have thought of that - I JUST bought oat flower. Fail.

    Have fun in Nashville. Take lots of pics. I've never been, but always wanted to visit!!

    (btw, I checked out firfly lane at the library and came home to download it to my itunes and my laptop crashed. UGH. I was so exctied to listen to it since I have a 12 miler. Now I have major itunes problems (getting my music off my crashed laptop but I'm going out of town so I theres nothing I can do about it until after this weekend. Major bummer!)
