Healthier Chocolate Chip Blondies (Gluten-Free)

I told you there would be a return of garbanzo bean flour! I can’t get enough of that stuff. It’s like quinoa- very versatile & can be eaten sweet or salty.

This time. I mixed 3 different flours, garbanzo bean, brown rice, and gluten free all purpose baking flour to create these little squares of heaven. I brought them on our boating excursion this weekend and they were gobbled. 

My friends give me so much shit for baking gluten free….but I don’t care, because honestly, I can’t really tell a difference between the two. Gluten free baked goods just have a slightly different texture.

A lot of people don’t realize that most food they eat are naturally gluten free. Like…

  • corn tortilla chips and salsa
  • chicken, steak and any kind of meat
  • rice
  • popcorn
  • all fruits and veggies
  • peanut butter
  • hummus

The list goes on!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Then, add in wet ingredients and mix. You batter should be thicker.

I actually used almost this exact recipe to make gluten free cookies that didn’t make the blog. In general, the batter didn’t rise that much, so my cookies turned out more like balls (unless I flattened them myself). Still delicious…but still mastering that recipe.

    I really want to start experimenting with gluten free since I have a sneaking suspicion gluten irritates my skin. I will have to give these a try!

    Oh and the trick for people giving you crap about baking/cooking a certain way…don’t tell them till they’ve had a bite and say “yummmm!” It’s fun to tell them what it’s made out of and watch their jaw drop. ;)
