Vegan Chickpea Coconut Blondies

Helloooo October!  Is it just me, or did September fly by?! The good thing is Thanksgiving is right around the corner, then Halloween and THEN Christmas! Yup, I said it. Yup, I get excited for Christmas in August…so sue me.  The good thing about the cooler weather is I’m using my oven more which means…baked goodies!

These vegan chickpea blondies are somewhat a combination of these chickpea brownies and these black bean brownies.  I added the goji berries last minute and I’m glad I did!  I mean, if you’re going to eat a brownie, it might as well have an energy boost 🙂Vegan Chickpea Coconut Blondies ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com
