Butter Bean Blondies

These Butter Bean Blondies are ooey, gooey, chewy chunks of delightfulness – definitely what heaven tastes like! Punctured with chunks of white chocolate for that little soft crunch in each mouthful. Made with a heck load of beans, these squidgy little slices are packed with protein and fibre along with a whole heap of other good things to keep you nice and nourished.

  1. Hi! Are there any alternatives to the ingredients? Instead of maple syrup, honey or instead of rapeseed sunflower oil for example?

    Also, are the butter beans the same with white beans??
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Despina, yes sure. Those are all perfectly suitable alternatives. I shall definitely make sure to add this information on future posts. Yes butter beans are a type of white bean, very similar to the small white beans 🙂 Let me know how it goes! x
