  • 65 g peanut butter
  • 85 ml maple syrup
  • 50 g chocolate chips
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 1 can chickpeas drained
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 80 g protein powder


  • 100 g dates
  • 350 ml plant milk
  • 1 tsp coarse salt


  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • For the blondies, start by heating the maple syrup and peanut butter in a saucepan until runny.
  • Place with the remaining ingredients (except walnuts and chocolate chips) in a food processor and blitz to a smooth, coarse batter.
  • Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips and pour into a baking dish lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • For the caramel, soak the dates in hot plant milk for at 1 hour.
  • Pour into a food processor and blitz into a smooth cream until no bits are present.
  • Pour on top of the blondies and serve.


  • The chickpeas can be replaced with other cooked beans, such as white beans or butter beans which have a more creamy texture and less earthy flavour. Other beans include black beans which are more rich and nutty.
  • Walnuts can be omitted or replaced by other nuts such as roast almonds or hazelnuts.
  • Protein powder can be omitted altogether if you do not feel the need to include it.
