Essential Kitchen Equipment

Before we dive into the recipe, ensure you have the following kitchen essentials:

  • Food processor
  • 8x8 inch baking pan
  • Coconut cooking spray
  • Wire rack (for cooling)
  • Microwave-safe bowl (for melting chocolate)
  • Measuring spoons and cups

The Recipe - Step by Step


  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans (or 1 can, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 cup sunbutter (I used Wild Friends honey sunflower butter)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 8-10 drops stevia
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (for the mix)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (for melting)
  • Fleur de sel


  1. Prepare Your Pan: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and spray your baking pan with coconut cooking spray.

  2. Blend the Ingredients: In your food processor, combine coconut oil, garbanzo beans, sunbutter, vanilla, salt, baking powder, baking soda, stevia, almond milk, sea salt, and collagen peptides. Blend until the batter is smooth.

  3. Add Chocolate Chips: Fold in 1/3 cup of dark chocolate chips into the batter. Spread it evenly in your prepared pan.

  4. Bake: Bake for 20-25 minutes. The edges should be slightly brown, and a toothpick inserted should come out clean.

  5. Cool and Garnish: Let the pan cool for 20 minutes. Melt the remaining chocolate chips and spread over the cooled blondies. Sprinkle fleur de sel and freeze for a minute until the chocolate sets.

  6. Serve: Cut into squares and serve. Enjoy!
