I mean... couldn't you just dive right into those melty pools of chocolate? I seriously can't get enough of these Paleo Blondies - they taste so decadent, you'd never know they were grain-free and refined-sugar free. I originally shared this recipe almost exactly 5 years ago... my friend Loren from Sweet Loren’s was in town for Expo West, and she stopped by to catch up and bake this insanely delicious recipe so I could share it right here with all my fellow dessert lovers! Since this is one of my favorite dessert recipes, I felt like it was time to give the photos a makeover to really do the recipe justice. So here we are with a fresh new look, but the same delicious recipe! (And if you want a peek at what the old photos looked like... scroll down to the bottom - we've come a long way my friends! I can't bear to get rid of my old videos either, so that's here to stay, too!)
For those of you who are yet to try out Sweet Loren’s baked goods – let me give you the low-down on this awesome girl boss company. Sweet Loren’s ready-to-bake desserts are completely and totally all-natural – they only use whole, unrefined ingredients and never have any preservatives. If you look at the ingredients on her label, you won’t find any words that you can’t pronounce – you guys know that's always the first thing I look at with packaged products. Loren is all about living a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle and she doesn’t sacrifice any of her health values when it comes to her company. Gotta love that! She’s a huge inspiration, I just adore her, and I'm so excited for you to fall in love with this recipe like I have!
3 cups blanced, finely ground almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt, plus some flakey sea salt for sprinkling on top
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
½ cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup, honey, or Just Date Syrup
2 organic eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, plus extra to sprinkle on top
Optional: one cup halved walnuts or pecans
Makes 20 blondies (suggested serving 1-2, easier said than done!)
TIP: you can store the blondies frozen in an airtight Tupperware or ziplock for easy portion-control treats... Just heat 1-2 at a time when the sweet tooth comes calling! They will last 2 months frozen.
Alright if you're ready for some serious throwbacks... here ya go!
Looking back at these oldie-but-goodie posts is always a fun reminder how far we've come since the beginning! Thanks for sticking around through it all!
