Mmmm, blondie batter!  Like a mixture between cookie dough and cake batter, but just a little different--not firm like cookie dough and not pourable like cake batter... it's juuuust right!


But here, I delved deeper into the healthy-doughs-and-batters world by using a different bean--the cannellini bean!

Don't worry!  You can't taste them at all!

Cannellini beans are similar in color to chickpeas but have the same fudgy texture as black beans.  Without the beans, this would just be a delicious oatmeal.  Dump some beans in a blender and add it to the mix, and then you get blondie batter, fudgy yummy and sweet blondie batter!  Despite the oats, this doesn't look or taste healthy at all.

It's too sweet, too buttery, too flavorful!  It tastes better than the stuff you can buy in the tubs.  Plus it's healthier and all natural.  Skip the processed storebought stuff and make this instead, you'll save time and gas from driving to the store!  Oh, and did I mention it takes only 10 minutes to make?!?

Win win win.

Buttery Toffee Oatmeal Blondie Batter:  [eggless, low fat/sugar, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(serves 4-6)
   192g (2 cups) Rolled Oats (old fashioned, gluten free if you like)
   84g (1/4 cup + 3 tbs) Granulated Erythritol (or other dry sweetener)
   40g (1/4 cup) Brown Rice Flour
   32g (1 scoop) Vanilla Protein Powder
   one 15oz can Cannellini Beans (drained and rinsed well;  1.5 cups beans)
   1/4 cup + 2 tbs Almond Milk (unsweetened)
   64g (1/4 cup) Raw Almond Butter (natural, any neutral nut butter would work here)
   21g (1 tbs) Molasses
   3/4 tsp English Toffee Stevia Extract*
   1/2 tsp Butter Extract

*Okay, I know it's annoying to buy a new bottle of something, but I am so glad I caved in and bought this--I use it all.the.time.  It's great in desserts like this, overnight oats, and especially coffee.  If you decide to order the toffee stevia, here is a $5 off discount code for iHerb.comBAF165

1.  In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients, mix, and set aside.
2.  In a blender, puree the wet ingredients.  Scoop over the dry ingredients and fold together.  Cover and refrigerate overnight, serve the next day!

Because I used a lot more oats than my other cookie doughs and batters, this needs more time in the fridge for the oats to soften up.  Plus, the flavors meld together overnight and it tastes 17x better after that totally unbearable super long wait a night in the fridge.  But it's 100% worth it.  You have dessert--I mean breakfast--all ready for you by morning!

Wanna know what really makes this blondie batter stand out?

The nutrition label, of course!

Exactly why I ate this blondie batter for breakfast, and you should too.

    1. I wouldn't bake the mixture because it doesn't contain typical cookie ingredients (like baking soda, butter, flour, etc) and most likely wouldn't come out as cookies. Microwaving the batter will cause the protein powder to cook into a strange "bread" sort of thing since it acts a little like flour in certain cases. I think this is best eaten cold ;) but you can try warming it up if you like. If you do, I'm crossing my fingers that it turns out well!

  4. This looks delicious!
    I'll try it out this weekend for breakfast :)

  5. This sounds to good too be healthy! I am so excited to try this. Lord knows I need to eat more things that don't ruin my diet!

    Love your blog - I am so glad I came across it! I will definitely be following to see what you share next.

    I recently started a food blog, and I'd love for you to follow. Maybe we can link up sometime! New blog friends makes me :)

  6. You got me! I just ordered the english toffee stevia based on your recommendation. It sounds divine!

  7. Do you know if there's typically any milk in the butter extract or toffee extract? Since I notice this is marked vegan.

    This looks really good and I'd love to try it, but I'm allergic to milk, so I just wanted to be sure. :)

    1. The butter extract linked does not contain dairy. Be careful though, some butter extracts (like Frontier brand) DO contain dairy. I'm allergic to dairy too and I haven't had any problems with it :)
