I love making treats that are indulgent, but really good for you – like these superfood vegan blondies. In fact, it’s one of the ways I keep my ‘sweet tooth’ in check without picking up too much weight. Yep, healthy swaps are my best friend!
If you’re looking for the perfect afternoon pick-me-up or mid-morning healthy treat, these superfood vegan blondies will hit the spot.
They’re gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and they’re made with oat flour and chickpeas to keep your blood sugar levels stable. Plus, I’ve included 2 scoops of Super Scoop – my plant-based organic drink mix that contains 50 fruit and veggie extracts.
