These chickpea-based cinnamon roll blondies are so perfectly chewy and thick, delivering all the powerful flavor of a rich cinnamon roll. Date paste and unsweetened applesauce provide richness and moisture. These ingredients keep the blondies from turning out dry! Another key ingredient in the blondies is the thick ribbon of cinnamon swirl on top. All natural sweetness, here! It’s a simple mix of date paste with a heavy dose of cinnamon added. You’d NEVER know they’re actually healthy.
