Even if the name might sound a bit complicated: these Peanut Butter Protein Blondies only consist of seven ingredients! No flour, no gluten, no lactose and therefore not only allergy-friendly but also super delicious and vegan of course.
Originally, I wanted to bake something like brownies or really anything with chocolate but then I thought ‘Tanith, not everyone is a chocolate junky like yourself – maybe people want to see something different sometimes’. The result were these blondies (chapeau to the one who thought of this genius name in contrast to brownies).
Well, when you want to make Protein Blondies the rest of the ingredients should be health and fitness conform too, right?. At least this was my feeling. With that the blondies even fit in if you’re on a diet which I am not the type for but still I keep an eye on my protein intake to make sure it is enough.
In general I prefer natural protein sources like lentils, beans, chickpeas, peas, quinoa, chia seeds, nuts, sometimes tofu and furthermore vegan protein powder. The ones who follow my story in Instagram might already know that the Sunwarrior protein powder is one of my absolute favorites. Most of the time I use it in my nicecream or pancakes but sometimes also for baking. For these blondies I used the SunWarrior Classic Plus in the flavor Vanilla. If you want to try it you can use the code SHELOVESEATING to get 10% off on the german website www.sunwarriordeutschland.de J I’m also currently using the Warrior Blend Mocca and the Classic Plus Chocolate. As I am a big chocolate and coffee lover my favorite it Mocca followed by Chocolate.
A little story about vanilla and me: I acutally used to NOT like vanilla. Vanilla ice cream was one of the most boring foods for me and I didn’t think it was delicious as all. This has completely changed. I now love the taste of fresh vanilla. I know it can’t be compared directly to the protein powder but in my opinion the Sunwarrior Protein has quite a good and not too superficial vanilla taste.
These Protein Blondies are therefore perfect for everyone who:
- wants to have a snack rich in protein
- can’t do gluten
- thrives on a vegan diet
- wants to try something new
- loves peanuts and vanilla
It would be ideal to store the finished blondies in the fridge. You should be able to keep them there for 5-6 days unless you finish them before.
I’d be happy if some of you give them a try and leave me a feedback here! It would also be great if you use the hashtag #cookwithtanith if you recreate any of my recipes J
Thank you and until next time xx
