White Bean Blondie Bars

These moist and chewy blondie bars are made with white beans, but you’d never know it by the taste! You get a burst of butterscotch and hints of maple in every bite, and some extra sweetness from the white chocolate drizzle.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15.5 0z) great northern beans
  • 3/4 cup oats, dry
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp white chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp butterscotch chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (for the drizzle)
  • 2 tbsp white chocolate chips (for the drizzle)
  • 2 tbsp butterscotch chips (for the drizzle)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray
  • In a food processor, process the oats into a powder. Then, add the beans and blend until they are completely pureed into a smooth consistency. The mixture will be thick
  • Add the sugar, maple syrup, vanilla extract, maple extract, baking powder and salt to the pureed beans and oats and mix until all ingredients are combined and the mixture is a smooth puree.
  • Once the batter is well combined, add 2 tbsp white chocolate chips and 2 tbsp butterscotch chips to the mixture. Pulse just enough to allow the chips to be evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and spread until evenly distributed.
  • Bake in the oven for ~25-30 minutes. Make sure not to overcook.
  • Gently lift the parchment paper out of the pan and set on the counter or a cooling rack. Do not cut the bars until they are completely cool. 
  • Put the remaining 1 tbsp of white chocolate chips in a small bowl with ½ tsp of coconut oil, and the 1 tbsp butterscotch chips in a separate bowl with the other ½ tsp coconut oil.  Melt in microwave, then drizzle over the cooked bars. 
  • Cut into 9 even bars, then store in the refrigerator or the freezer until ready-to-eat.
