Peanut Butter White Bean Blondies with dark chocolate chips

With my vegan black bean brownies recipe being such a huge success with you guys, I felt super motivated to create some more healthy desserts with the magic ingredient “beans”!

The recipe is roughly based on my black bean brownies recipe, which I made, like 100 times already and which I would confidently offer to pretty much anyone confidently, health nut or not.

These White Bean Blondies are vegan, sugar-free, dairy-free, low-cal and full of plant-based protein, fiber, and healthy fats!

We love beans for their fiber, plant-based protein and minerals and adding beans to baked goods is my favorite new baking hack! Since pureed beans tend to add some more moisture to a recipe, these blondies have a super-rich. almost fudge-like texture to them! I like to chill them in the fridge, which makes them even more delicious in my opinion!

Do White Bean Blondies taste like beans?

Nope, they do not! This is clearly a recipe for peanut butter lovers because what these blondies taste of is mostly peanut butter. I wanted to make sure to add as much peanut butter flavour to these white bean blondies, as possible and I found the best way to do so while still keeping the calories low is to add powdered peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Powder adds extra peanut-flavor and protein to these vegan white bean blondies!

I wanted these White Bean Blondies to be bursting with peanut flavor. For this reason recipe, I am using Spread The Love NAKED Organic Peanut Butter * , which has added palm oil, salt and sugar, and PB&Me Sugar Free Powdered Peanut Butter *to enhance the peanut flavor. It is also a neat way to add some more protein to our white bean blondies. You could leave the powdered peanut butter out, but the brownies will taste less peanut-y and you might have to up the amount of vanilla and nutmeg and even maybe add some cinnamon to make sure the beans don’t come through!

Ingredients

  • 600 g white beans canned or cooked dried beans
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter powder
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 tbsp stevia or 10 dates soaked in hot water or powdered or liquid sweetener of your choice
  • 70 ml maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking powder

toppings

  • 2 tbsp peanuts
  • 50 g dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. A note before you start! 

    I use this brand of powdered peanut butter to add extra peanut flavour to these white bean blondies and highly recommend you do the same. If you do not want to use powdered peanut butter, make sure to make up for the loss of flavour by adding more peanut butter or other spices and aromas!  

  2. Soak the dates, if using, in hot water overnight. If using dried beans, soak them overnight and prepare according to the instructions. Drain well and let cool down.  If using canned beans, rinse and drain them thoroughly.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a small brownie pan with parchment paper ( 20cm x 20 cm or 23 x 23 x 5) 

  4. If using dates, remove them from the hot water and add them to the bowl of your food processor, together with the maple syrup. Pulse quickly. Add all other ingredients apart from the baking powder and pulse until smooth. Stir in the baking powder and mix well.  Taste the batter and add more sweetener, if you like.

  5. Spoon the batter into the lined pan and smooth out the surface. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, chocolate, and salt and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the surface looks dry and little cracks are visible. Remove from the oven and let cool, then cut into squares and enjoy.

  1. LOVING that these are vegan! The addition of PB is tasty!


  2. Wow. These look so good and I bet they are super tasty too. I haven’t used beans in baking would love to try that.


  3. I love that these are refined sugar-free and they look like they pack so much flavor!

    • Hi Jenni! They do indeed! I have been trying to cut out refined sugar as much as I can but with baked goods, it’s sometimes difficult to achieve the desired texture without granulated sugar! These are an exception though. Glad you like them!

  4. Lauren @ Delicious Little Bites


    I’ve been coming across quite a few vegan recipes that just blow my mind! I’m not vegan, but I’m so intrigued by this recipe and using the white beans to make it that I think I’m going to start exploring vegan cooking even more!

    • As a non-vegan, I am going through the same process myself! Vegan baking can be really fun and you learn so much about possible substitutions! Thanks so much for stopping by!


  5. These look amazing and I love that you made them healthier! My kids and I might have to whip these up today!

  6. I’ve done a little baking with beans, and I’m always surprised by how moist and delicious the results are. My husband and I both love peanut butter, so I need to make these soon!

  7. Elaine @ Dishes Delish


    I would have never thought to put white beans in blondie brownies. I’ve used black beans in brownies before so that makes total, brilliant sense! I love how moist and delicious they look! These brownies are now on my to-do list!


  8. So excited to find this recipe! I love making healthier desserts like black bean brownies or white bean cookies, but these peanut-buttery blondie bars are a whole new arena for me! I mean seriously … is there a box they don’t tick??? Vegan, sugar-free, dairy-free, low-cal … and chock-full of protein, fiber, and healthy fats! Win! I love that you offer the option of dates as a sweetener, too! This is terrific!


  9. I just can’t believe this is a healthier dessert. Your blondies look so gooey and delicious! Using white beans is a new idea for me. I’m going to have to give it a try!

  10. I tried black bean brownies once and wasn’t a fan, but I think these would be more up my alley! They look absolutely decadent!

    • Thanks so much, Ashley! Beans in baked goods take some getting used to and the recipe needs to be very well tested. It is definitely not for everyone! In these, however, I made sure to add as much peanut flavour as possible to cover up the bean taste!


  11. Wow! I never even thought that you can make blondies using white beans!) This recipe looks great and I am so curious to make them! Love it!)

  12. So great that these are refined sugar-free. They look delicious and I’m super interested in trying them!


  13. The secret ingredients in these delicious looking blondies are quite a surprise. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try.


  14. These blondies look SO delicious! I love that they are made with white beans. That gooey chocolate is mesmerizing!

  15. I’ve tried both black beans and white beans and yes, it takes some time to get used to them, but I like the additional fiber/protein/vitamin you get. They look delicious!

  16. Michelle Blackwood


    Wow. I’m a vegan and your recipe is so creative, I’m bookmarking it to make soon.


  17. Vegan and delicious! White bean a superb blondie ingredient, healthy and tasty!

  18. Vielen Dank für dieses geniale Rezept!! Noch sind sie im Ofen, aber der Teig alleine war geschmacklich schon ein Traum (auch die super Konsistenz) und lässt auf großes Hoffen:)

    Ich habe schon viele gesunden (Bohnen-)Rezepte ausprobiert, aber das könnte ein neuer Favorit von mir werden, da die weißen Bohnen geschmacklich nicht rauskamen.. Kanns kaum erwarten die fertigen zu essen!

    • Hallo Nikoletta! Das freut mich aber sehr, dass dir die Blondies so gut schmecken!Danke für das Feedback! Der Teig ist wirklich lecker und wann kann man sich schon ganze Teelöffel Blondieteig reinzischen, nicht? Ich wünsche dir einen tollen Start in die Woche! Ganz liebe Grüße!


      • Deine schnelle Antwort freut mich aber!! Und da hast du Recht.. aber bist du dir sicher, dass du nicht Esslöffel meintest… und zwar viele Esslöffel??! 😉 Und die fertigen Blondies sind super, ich habe sie gestern noch nicht bewertet, aber sie haben fünf Sterne verdient. Bin auf deine anderen Rezepte gespannt, da werde ich mich doch auch gleich mal durchklicken:) Viele liebe Grüße!

        • Danke dir! Ich freue mich sehr über deine Bewertung! Och, da hab ich doch tatsächlich Teelöffel geschrieben! Esslöffel mindestens! Haha! Ohja, gerne! Schau dich in Ruhe um. Ich freue mich, in dir eine neue Leserin gefunden zu haben! Ganz liebe Grüße!

  20. Desserts are such a major part of a meal but I often have to skip them when I am checking my health. But I can make an exception with this one. The recipe is fantastic. I made it a few nights back. I can easily assure that I will be making these again. Wonderful dessert. Loved it!
