Vanilla Protein Blondies

Dessert is something that I'm rarely willing to give up, so I'm always working on and looking for new dessert options.  Since it's getting a little too cold to enjoy my Arctic Zero ice cream creations, I've resorted to baked goods.

I've been wanting to try a Chickpea Blondie recipe for quite a while and finally got around to making a batch.  If you're skeptical, trust me, these do not taste like chickpeas.  They actually resemble more of a banana bread, because I think I added a little too much banana, but they're delicious all the same.
