Not-so-basic Pumpkin Pie Bean Blondies – Gluten/Sugar/Dairy Free

Somehow, it is October. With the fall comes everything pumpkin, so I thought I would follow suit by making something pumpkin and delicious. This recipe developed from an interesting originĀ – it started off with my desire for something akin to cookie dough and remembered a video I saw on youtube of a chickpea-based s’mores dip. After pulling out the ingredients and making the dip, I realized I didn’t like the flavour. Making hummus was out of the question since I had added sweetener to it, but I remembered that making brownies and blondies out of beans is really common. I threw in some ingredients, popped the mix in the oven and prayed for a miracle. A lot of the recipe was eye-balled so these quantities are basically an approximation. This recipe can also be used to make mug cakes!
