These Paleo Chocolate Chip Blondies are absolutely delicious and made with real-food ingredients…gluten, dairy & refined sugar-free!
I never thought I would say this, but these Chocolate Chip Blondies have become my new favorite...OVER chocolate brownies! I really don't know what took me so long to give blondies a try. As a matter of fact, my whole family prefers these over chocolate brownies now.
My absolute favorite dessert has always been chocolate chip cookies and brownies. What better to combine the two together...this is like a dream!
To make these blondie bars you will need:
The almond butter gives these bars the perfect soft and chewy texture. I like to use coconut sugar and maple syrup together to give the best sweetness. And almond and coconut flour keeps them gluten free, low carb and full of fiber.
I must mention here, my husband is not much of a dessert person. Well, the first time I made these, he asked if I could make another batch. So obviously there is never any leftovers!
No matter what dessert I choose to make, I always use my favorite paleo gluten free flours, natural sugars and oils that I always have on hand. So, I'm usually prepared with ingredients whenever we have a dessert craving like this one.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. Make sure to leave a 2-3 inch overhang on all sides to make it easier to remove the bars from the dish.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. I like to start with the wet ingredients first followed by the dry ingredients. Make sure all ingredients are completely mixed together. It will be a wet & sticky batter.
Press the dough into the baking dish with a rubber spatula and bake for 25 minutes. You might have to use your fingers as well.
Cool completely for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Here are a few chocolate chip choices I've listed below. These three brands are all dairy & sugar free. Of course, the Luv brand is 80% cocoa which will have a slightly different taste than the other two.
These bars need to be stored in an airtight container. I never have to worry about this part because there is never any left! My family devours them!
Absolutely! Make sure to put them in an airtight container before freezing. When ready to enjoy, pull the bars out of the freezer and let thaw for a few minutes at room temperature or heat for a few seconds.
