First off, let’s start with…

What are “Blondies”?

Unlike the regular brownie, blondies contain no chocolate or cacao.

While it resembles a brownie, the chocolate and the cocoa are substituted with other ingredients. 

However, they can contain chocolate chips, which, I think, (almost) always makes any dessert better. 😀

The blondies we are going to make are dense, juicy, and super delicious!

Does it taste like beans?

Even though these Blueberry Blondies are made with white beans – don’t worry.

There is zero “bean” taste, and usually, when others try the blondies, they cannot believe that they are made with beans. 🙂

Ingredients for the White Bean Blueberry Blondies:

  • White beans – Use butter beans/cannellini beans. I’m pretty sure the recipe will work perfectly fine with chickpeas (garbanzo beans), too. You can use canned or dried.
  • Banana – If you worry that the blondies will taste like bananas, don’t! We will use it mainly for its texture and bind the blondies better. 
  • Date syrup – A fantastic natural sweetener. Probably one of my favorite! You can find date syrup in glass jars on Amazon. You can also substitute it for maple syrup. 
  • Protein powder – I used Vitally Vegan Protein Powder, the Forest Fruits flavor (you can get £10 0FF with the code ZEROWASTE). I’ve tried this recipe with other protein powders, but this one fits amazingly well! If you have different protein powder, you can use it.
  • Coconut oil – We will need a bit of coconut oil to make the blondies juicier and create a much richer taste.
  • Oat flour – It helps you feel full for longer, and it is rich in fiber, and it is another ingredient that will “bind” the blondies. Plus, you can make it yourself (grind oats!), and it is easy to find plastic-free.
  • Chocolate & Blueberries – Because both of these make everything better & tastier.
