Almond Flour Blondies are soft and chewy with a rich butterscotch flavour and plenty of dark chocolate chips. They’re also gluten-free and dairy-free, made with almond flour and no butter!
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup cane sugar
- 1/2 cup natural almond butter, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons virgin, cold pressed coconut oil, softened (not melted)
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups almond flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 + 1/4 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8-inch square pan and line it with overhanging parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the brown sugar, cane sugar, almond butter and coconut oil and, using an electric mixer, beat on high until the ingredients are well combined.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla. Continue beating the mixture on high until it turns a lighter colour. This will take a few minutes.
- In a small bowl, whisk or sift together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and kosher salt.
- With the mixer on medium speed, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and beat until just incorporated.
- Stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
- Spread the batter out evenly in the prepared pan. Scatter the remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top and press them lightly into the batter. Sprinkle on the sea salt.
- Bake for 27-29 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and start to pull away from the pan. A tooth pick inserted into the centre should come out almost clean.
- Let cool completely on a wire rack and cut into 16 squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature and enjoy within 5-6 days.
- Make sure your cold ingredients are brought to room temperature so they mix together easily.
- You can use granulated sugar if you don’t have cane sugar.
- This recipe calls for both kosher salt and sea salt. While you can use table salt to replace the kosher salt, sea salt is more of a finishing salt, so I don’t recommend using table or kosher salt as a substitute.
