  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Powder
  • 1/2 cups

    Almond Flour

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350°F. Using 1 tablespoon ghee butter an 8x8 inch pan then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sweeteners, almond butter, eggs and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add the almond flour and salt, and then fold in with a spatula until a thick batter is formed.
  • Transfer the blondie batter to the prepared tin and smooth out the top. Bake the blondies for 25-35 minutes, checking to see if the edges are browning at 20 minutes. If the edges are browning faster than the center of the blondies, cover with foil and return to the oven until cooked.

Notes

  • Gluten free flours are not all made the same. If you can’t have one of the flours in this recipe, please be aware that you probably won’t be able to make a 1:1 swap without reworking the entire recipe.
  • You’ll need to hold off on eating these until they are cool. Trying to dig in too soon may mean that they fall apart.
  • You can use any nut or see butter but make sure that it doesn’t have any added sugar.
