Who doesn’t love that combo? Honey mustard…bacon…chicken…mmmm. Sounds like a Cobb salad to me. Always a tasty treat to be sure. Something about this melding of flavors is so savory, mouthwatering, homey, and just delicious. Much like the pairing of chocolate and peanut butter, a match made in heaven.
This recipe is light in calories, but packs a homey, comfort food, satisfying punch. Its gluten free, and without refined sugar.

Happy Sunday, all!
Turns out, sometime blondes do have more fun. At least, in the vein of these particular goodies they do. This past weekend, I discovered a delightful new baking ingredient that’s changed my life over the last 24 hours. Replacing flour in baking goods with ground up chickpeas. I know, sounds somewhat sketchy. I was hesitant myself. How could ground up beans possibly result in that cakey, delightful texture I so adore in all things cake, pastry, and cookie?
Shockingly though, they rivaled precisely that. The texture of these blondies are in fact: cakey, slightly nutty, sweet, decadent, absolutely delicious. I couldnt stop at just one. More like just…four 😉
I can assure you, trying this recipe (which is super easy and ready in minutes, might I add) will have you never turning back. These are SO good. I already made not one, but two batches of them this weekend alone. That’s how awesome these babies are.
So, the blondies: gluten/grain free, dairy free, vegan, and low in sugar.
Dont take my word for it though. Whip up a batch for your own sampling pleasure!

Inspired by and adapted from the book “Hungry for Change: Ditch the Diets, Conquer the Cravings, and Eat Your Way to Lifelong Health,” by James Colquhoun and Laurentine Bosch (which was excellent, by the way. I recommend reading this if you are interested in the topics of health and nutrition. Its an easy, quick but informative and inspiring read), I give you these fluffy, light, absolutely delicious blueberry ricotta pancakes.
Grain/gluten free, and low in sugar, these are basically great for you. Yet they totally hit that pancake hankering spot one feels on weekend brunching mornings (at least that’s my quintessential weekend (and actually, weekday as well) morning ;-)).
