The nights are crisp and cool, and though it's too late to help my garden, the drought has broken and rain has come. Maybe it's just me, but I think the sky is somehow bluer when the weather turns cold.
I love this kid.
But for now I'd like to share this recipe that we've been enjoying since I first made it a few weeks ago. It's for blondies and is made with garbanzo beans. The result is a healthier treat that's high in fiber. It does have a bit of sugar, though, so eat in moderation. Each bar has around 200 calories if my calculations are correct. Use dried beans, dark chocolate chips, and the least processed sugar you can find. I haven't tried substituting honey but I bet it would work.
