6 Ingredient Gluten Free Blondies

A few weeks ago, I became obsessed with the Paleo blondies at Hu Kitchen. They seriously taste as buttery and delicious as the real thing but they’re gluten free and made with coconut palm sugar. I wanted to make something similar so decided to check out Elana’s Pantry in search of a recipe.

She makes incredible gluten free wonders. On her site, I found this crazy amazing recipe for “blondies” that are made from only 6 ingredients. I was highly skeptical but decided to try making them to see what would happen. I had all of the ingredients on hand so it was a breeze.

First of all, this recipe was so easy to make. It involved mixing up a few ingredients and popping the final product into the oven. It took a total of less than 10 minutes, I kid you not. Secondly, holy cow these gluten free blondies are tasty. I could (and did) eat them all day long. They are the perfect amount of cakey and gooey without having any sort of flour in them. It makes no sense logically but I promise you, you will not be disappointed. My husband, who is mostly Paleo, especially appreciated this dessert that he could actually eat and enjoy.

You can find Elana’s recipe below. I didn’t change a thing.

-1 (16 oz) jar creamy almond butter
-1 cup agave nectar or honey
-2 organic free range eggs
-1/2 tspn sea salt
-1 tspn baking soda
-1 cup chocolate chips

-In a large bowl mix almond butter until creamy with a hand blender
-Mix in agave/honey and eggs
-Add salt and baking soda
-Mix well with hand blender until all ingredients are thoroughly combined
-Mix half of the chocolate chips into the batter
-Pour batter into a well greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish
-Scatter the other half of the chocolate on top of the batter
-Bake at 325 for 35 minutes
-Let cool for 20 minutes

    might want to sub the honey for an alternative sweetener, honey goes toxic when you heat it (or so ayurveda says)!

      I actually used agave when I made it but that’s good to know!

    I was interested when you said they were made with coconut palm sugar and that you didn’t change a thing but the recipe calls for agave or honey both of which I eschew so will it work with one cup of coconut palm sugar?
