Healthy Red Velvet Blondies (No Beans!)
As much as I love creating healthy desserts out of chickpeas and white beans, I wanted to give you another option, ya know, for the paleo folk. These dense and delicious blondies are made with extra ripe bananas and my favorite protein powder: PEScience Select Protein. I used their Cookies and Cream flavor (can sub any protein you like).
