Grain-Free Almond Butter Blondies

 

Grain-Free Almond Butter Blondies

Oh, Friends, you know how much I love a good sweet treat. The best part of these as that they're grain-free and that they contain a low-glycemic sweetener but they still taste amazing! I recently made this treat for a "Bachelor Viewing Party" with some girlfriends and shared this recipe as long with some other goodies on the Bachelor TV website!

I can't wait to hear how much you love these, they're very allergy friendly so a great treat to bring with you to "get togethers".

 

ingredients:

-1/4 cup melted Coconut Oil

-1/3 cup Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (Coconut Sugar is an excellent low glycemic sweetener option. You can use Honey as your sweetener if you’re unfamiliar with coconut sugar)

-1/4 cup Raw Organic Almond Butter

-1 egg

1-/2 tsp. Gluten Free Vanilla

-1 1/4 cup Almond Meal/Flour

-1/8 tsp. baking soda

-1/2 tsp. baking powder

-1/4 tsp. salt

-Your choice of chocolate chip baking chips. I prefer using Dark Chocolate Chunks or Dairy Free Chocolate Chips. *Usually I love extra chocolate, but in this recipe I think less is more!

directions:

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Grease a square baking dish w/ coconut oil or parchment paper

-Mix melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, almond butter, egg, and vanilla in a small bowl with kitchen-aid or hand mixer. Mix well.

-Combine almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and mix together well with a fork.

-Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix well with the mixer.

-Mix in your choice of chocolate chips/chunks and spread batter in greased pan (grease with coconut oil).

-Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out of center clean. Edges will start to turn golden brown.

 

Enjoy this absolutely moist and delicious treat!

    sounds great, if I'm using maple syrup or honey instead of the coconut sugar, is the amount of maple syrup still 1/3 cup or more or less?

    Also, can I use 1 1/4 cup protein powder instead of the almond meal flour?

    I haven't tried that, but go for it! Please let me know how it goes. I love Almond Flour because it has a good source of protein and healthy fats in it and makes for a "grain free" treat.

    I haven't specifically used another sweetener on this recipe, but it should work perfectly. I recommend a organic/raw honey instead of maple syrup. The honey is lower on the glycemic index. Also, Coconut is one of the lowest, so I highly recommend that.

    This is amazing!! Thank you so much for this recipe. My mom and I have recently started eating paleo/gluten free and this is finally a recipe that tastes like the real thing. A great recipe to keep us from cheating! A million thanks from my mom and I!! The only substitution was that I made my own chocolate chips with unsweetened bakers chocolate and coconut sugar.
