Blondies are basically a vanilla version of brownies. These blondies are chewy and delicious with a bit of chocolate dotted throughout. You won’t believe your taste buds but these are completely free of dairy and gluten with the help of coconut oil and almond flour. What better way to get some healthy almonds into your kids? The best part is that they can be made in a few easy steps. Yum!
Prep Time: 15 minutes Bake Time: 20-25 minutes Makes 12-18 blondie squares
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
5 cups (16 oz) almond flour (super fine)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cups egg whites
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate chips or chunks
Melt the coconut oil in a bowl and put it aside to cool. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together the almond flour, salt and baking soda. Add the sugar, egg whites and vanilla to the coconut oil and whisk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Fold the chocolate chips into the batter. Place the batter into a 13×9 baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool and cut into squares. Store in an air tight container in the fridge. Serve warm with a scoop of non-dairy ice cream for a delicious dessert.
