Chocolate-Covered Katie’s recipe for Deep Dish Cookie Pie made healthy with garbanzo beans has been a big hit at our house this summer. I’ve made it numerous times for us to enjoy and to take to parties.
Gooey PB&J Blondies from Katie’s blog also intrigued me, so I made them this past weekend. My first thought when I bit into a bar was that it both tasted and smelled like Goober Grape peanut butter. Mr. SP had the same thought with no prompting from me!
I liked them but didn’t think that they were as good as the Deep Dish Chocolate Chip version, probably because there was no chocolate! I will make this recipe again as it is healthy treat that contains no oil or butter.
Gooey PB&J Blondies
- 1 can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (not unsalted)
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 plus 1/8 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup brown sugar (I may add a touch more the next time)
- 1/2 cup jam of choice (I used strawberry)
The next time I make these I plan to either stir a small amount of chocolate chips into the batter or add a touch more brown sugar to make them a bit sweeter.
