Ingredients for White Chocolate Chip Blondie
Here’s what you’ll need: baking powder, baking soda, pure vanilla extract, chickpeas or white beans, salt, sweetener of your choice, nut butter or coconut oil, white chocolate chips, applesauce or yogurt, and flour.
Bars can be made with garbanzo beans (chickpeas), cannellini beans (white kidney beans), northern beans, or navy beans.
Valid flours include white, spelled, oat, sorghum, or almond flour. Feel free to experiment at your own risk if using other flours, such as whole wheat or coconut flour.
Sweeteners can be regular or brown sugar, coconut sugar, date sugar, unsweetened granulated erythritol or xylitol. I have not tried this particular recipe with stevia, pure maple syrup, or another liquid sweetener.
Any of the following fat sources will work: macadamia, cashew, sunflower or almond butter, coconut butter, or vegetable or melted coconut oil.
Some tasters liked the fat-free version, made with mashed bananas or sweet potatoes instead of oil, while others didn’t. So omit fat sources at your own risk.

Can you make them vegan and keto?
If you use dairy-free white chocolate chips, the bar is already vegan. They are naturally egg-free and replace the traditional Blondie dairy butter with nut butters.
There are several brands of dairy-free vegan white chocolate chips on the market today, including Pascha, King David and Nestle Allergen Free. Always check the label in case the ingredients change in the future.
Beans make up the base of these dessert bars, so there’s no direct one-to-one low-carb and keto alternative.
However, you can make your own delicious keto white chocolate blondie by using our sugar-free vegan cranberry bliss bar recipe, baking and frosting, then pressing fresh raspberries onto the top of the bread.
How to Make White Chocolate Raspberry Blondie
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8-inch baking sheet or line the bottom of the baking sheet with parchment paper.
If using canned beans, drain and rinse well before starting.
Blend everything except the white chocolate chips and raspberries until the dough resembles a thick, smooth cookie dough.
A food processor is highly recommended for the best texture. Some readers say a blender works, but you need to use a tamper or stop the blender occasionally to stir the dough to blend it evenly.
The recipe was inspired by my chickpea cookie dough dip
The bar can be left on the counter the first night, loosely covered to allow excess moisture to escape.
After a day, we recommend refrigerating leftovers for optimal freshness. Store in a covered container, leaving a small opening.
If you’re attending a party or event, it’s okay to leave the White Chocolate Chip Raspberry Blondie on the counter for hours.
Also, if you have leftover blondies after 4 days, you can freeze the bars in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Add a layer of wax paper or parchment between each layer of blondie to keep them from sticking together.
Healthy Blondie Flavor
White chocolate chips: For a plain vegan white chocolate blondie, omit the berries.
Blueberry Blondie: Instead of raspberries, tuck an equal number of fresh (or frozen and thawed) blueberries into the unbaked blondie.
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter: Top the Blondie with about 2 tablespoons each of dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips.
White chocolate strawberry: Press the thinly sliced strawberries onto the blondie before baking. Alternatively, diced the berries and gently mix them into the dough. Strawberries are very juicy, so don’t add more than 4 cups of diced berries if using this option.
Alternatively, Blondie can be a Snickerdoodle Blondie.
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Each: salt, baking soda
- 1 can chickpeas or white beans, or 1 1/2 cups cooked beans (Keto options are listed above)
- 1/4 cup applesauce, mashed bananas, or yogurt
- 3/4 cup Sugar of your choice or granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoon almond or cashew butter, or coconut oil
- 1/3 cup white flour, spelled, oat, or almond flour
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 20 raspberry, or as needed
Preheat oven to 350 F. Drain the beans and rinse well. Blend everything except chips and berries in a food processor until completely smooth. (The texture is best in a food processor, but a blender technically works if you stop occasionally and stir the contents with a spoon to blend evenly.) Stir in the white chocolate chips now or add to the top before baking. Sprinkle. Smooth batter into a greased or parchment-lined 8-inch pan. Push the raspberries to the top. Bake for 30 minutes. Blondies look a little overdone when you take them out.nutrition information
