Serves: 16 blondies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup creamy, drippy natural almond butter (just roasted almonds)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top
  • Fancy sea salt, for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond butter, eggs, coconut sugar, maple syrup, melted coconut oil and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in the coconut flour, baking soda, salt and ½ cup chocolate chips. Add dough to prepared pan and spread evenly towards the edges. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons chocolate chips on top.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tester comes out somewhat clean. Allow bars to cool for 15-20 minutes before cutting into 16 squares. Enjoy!
Notes
It's important to use a drippy natural almond butter in this recipe (just roasted almonds as the ingredient) to make sure you get the right consistency with the blondies. 365, Kirkland and Trader Joe's all have good drippy natural almond butters.

To make these vegan: I haven't tried making these vegan, but I suggest testing them out with 2 flax eggs if you are willing!
