Yes, I am aware of that, but I truly appreciate you pointing it out. There was a specific reason why I did not call them blondies. What makes these extra creamy is using real chickpeas. I am GF and will not touch chickpea flour. It makes everything taste really bean-y. Real chickpeas in baked goods do not taste that way.

In my experience, yellow brownies are called "Blondies!" Brownies are brown with cocoa or chocolate. But they look like a good idea. I make chocolate brownies with chick pea flour these days for my gluten-free friends.
