Add the chickpeas and the pitted medjool dates to the food processor and pulse until smooth.
Add the peanut butter, apple sauce, maple syrup, and baking powder and process until smooth.
Add the chocolate chips and mix in with a spatula.
Line a square 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
Pour the batter in and smooth the top.
Bake for about 1.5-2 hours depending on your oven. The batter is pretty liquid, so it'll take a long time to cook. Check after an hour, depending on your oven it could be cooked already. If it's still too soft and the top is starting to burn, then cover with foil.
These blondies are delicious, but don't expect them to taste like the ones full of butter, sugar, and flour.As mentioned earlier, you can add 1/4-1/2 cup of oats to boost fiber content and process until smooth.I used regular Kraft peanut butter, and it has some sugar in it already. If you are using natural peanut butter, then you might add a bit more maple syrup or more chocolate chips.My oven takes longer to bake, so I had them in the oven for more than 2 hours, but I'm pretty sure that regular oven would be done faster.
