While we were up in Montreal I made friends with a girl – more specifically a doctor – who literally answered all my medical questions admist my wine drinking! ย Anywho…she mentioned a recipe that sounded too good to be true, a flourless chickpea blondie! Yum in the tum, I think I found a go to recipe! Thanks Doctor K.!
