Protein Packed Blondies

  • Ali

Have you ever tried a Blondie? It’s like a brownie but without the cocoa! They’re one of my latest addictions so I’ve been working on a healthy protein packed recipe to take advantage of this trend. Here’s our favourite so far. Totally delicious, packed with protein and all the gooey-ness of a brownie!


1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained – reserve 6 tablespoons liquid

120g almond butter

120g dates – I like Medjool or Deglet Noor 

20g rapeseed oil

50g maple syrup

50g roast peanuts – roughly chopped (depending on how much crunch you like)

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 scoops Arbonne Vanilla Protein Powder 

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

Optional Toppings: Chopped nuts, raw cacao nibs, vegan chocolate chunks etc.


  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line a 20cm baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place the chickpeas, liquid and dates into your food processor or Nutri-bullet and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Add all other ingredients and blend again.
  • Spoon your mixture into the prepared tin and top with your toppings of choice.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden around the edges.
  • Remove and let cool completely before slicing.

Store the fridge for 4 days. Believe me it won’t last that long!
