After many trips to my favorite coffee shop called Picnik (near Downtown Austin) just to get my paleo chocolate chip blondie, I finally decided to bake my own. And oh, was that a great decision! I'm not sure if it was the wisest though since I now have a whole plate of them rather than just one. . . but now I get to share! (well maybe. . .)
These are so easy to make and you would never know they're guilt free! My boyfriend refuses to believe they are healthy because "they taste way too good". . . and that's coming from a non-paleo person.
Taste these gooey delicious treats and try to tell me they're not amazing. I dare you!
Chocolate Chip Blondies (paleo)
1/2 cup almond butter (raw, salt free)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (Enjoy Life)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a medium size bowl, combine the almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla and stir until smooth. Then add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well. Lastly, fold in your choice of chocolate chips.
3. Next, spread the dough evenly in the baking pan and place in the oven for 20-23min, or until lightly brown. Once it is baked, take it out of the oven and let it cool completely. Then cut into squares and serve!
Note: these yummy squares are the perfect treat with a cup of coffee! (hot or cold)
