No-Bake Peanut Butter Blondies

1/12th of recipe (1 bar): 140 calories, 7g total fat (1.5g sat. fat), 188mg sodium, 15g carbs, 3g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 5.5g protein
Freeze: 2 hours
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered peanut butter
1/4 cup lite pancake syrup
1 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener that's about twice as sweet as sugar)
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line an 8" X 8” baking pan with parchment paper.
Pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour in a food processor. Add 1/3 cup water and all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Puree until completely uniform.
Gently fold in 1/2 tbsp. chocolate chips. Spread mixture into the baking pan, and smooth out the top.
Evenly top with remaining 1 1/2 tbsp. chocolate chips, and lightly press into the batter. Cover and freeze until just firm, about 2 hours.
Once firm, store in the refrigerator. (They’re also good slightly frozen!)
