Garbanzo Bean Blondie

I went to a juicery the other day and had this amazing blondie.  I asked them what was in it and the moment they said garbanzo beans and almond butter, I had to try and recreate it.  Beans are something I do not advocate eating if you have not prepared them correctly, which means soaking in an acidic environment first.  Beans are a great source of fiber, and fiber is great for supporting healthy gut bacteria, binding free hormones, and eliminating cholesterol.  So, it can be worth the effort if you decide to prep them!
Garbanzo Bean Blondies
16oz garbanzo beans
3/4 cup nut butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.  Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.  Blend all the ingredients together besides the chocolate chips.  Mix in the chocolate after it’s blended.  Spread in the baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before removing.  Store in the fridge.
