Peanut Butter Blondies

This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in  Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by: Moskowitz and Romero.

This dessert recipe is not only delicious, but really high in protein.  Peanuts are already a good provider and I added to the content by using garbanzo bean flour.  This flour adds only a slight nuttiness to the flavor and is great for desserts.  As a bonus, this flour is gluten free for anyone out there suffering that allergy. Top one of these off with a drizzle of my delicious chocolate sauce and enjoy.
