Healthy High Protein Blondies
Ohhhhhh, I have outdone myself this time. I have made ALOT of recipes, all of which I love (obviously) BUT this one tops them all. If you are going to try any of my recipes make sure you give this one a go. Trust me, once you make these healthy high protein blondies you will being making them every weekend!
Recently I did a little poll on my Instagram (@andyhillocks if you’re not following me already…) to see if you guys prefer healthy recipes or high protein recipes. High protein won by a rather high margin, so I set on the mission to make some high protein blondies, but conveniently these are super healthy, soooooo, win win right!
This recipe contains a brown sugar alternative called Sukrin Gold, made out of polyols (sugar alcohols). You can get it from most super markets now days and a little goes a long way and its kinda a must for this recipe, which is kinda handy because it means you can just keep on making blondies! ;). Okay, thats enough talking, time for some blondies!
Yields: 12 Blondies
1 400g can of Chickpeas (drained and washed)
100g Smooth Peanut Butter
50g Flour (I used oat flour, but plain flour is fine)
80g Sukrin Gold
60g Protein Powder (I used vanilla)
70g Chocolate Chips (I used reduced sugar dark chocolate ones)
1/2 Tsp Bicarbonate Soda
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
4 Tbsp Milk (I used Almond Milk)
The beauty of this recipe is it’s a throw it all in the food processor kind of job. Firstly pre-heat your oven to 180ºC and line a 35×25 cm non stick tray with greaseproof paper. Next chuck everything except the chocolate chips into the food processor and blitz until smooth. Depending on the protein powder you used you may need a little more milk, the mixture should be just dropping off a spoon. Put the mixture into a bowl and add 3/4 of the chocolate chips and stir in. Transfer the mixture to the lined baking tray and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top. Bake in the oven for 12-18 minutes until slightly golden round the edges and a little soft in the middle as you want these to be fudgey. Allow to cool before removing from the tray and slicing into squares. These are when they are at their best, slightly warm and fresh. These will keep up to a week in the fridge in an air tight container!
