Grain-Free Chocolate Chip “Blondies”

Grain-Free Chocolate Chip “Blondies”
This is a delicious and healthy alternative for those people who are on gluten-free and/or grain-free diets. You can whip it up quickly and it bakes in less than a half-hour. While they are not as dense as regular blondies, they are a nice substitute. And, if you don't tell anyone they are "grain-free" or "gluten-free" - they won't notice! An added bonus: since the main ingredient is almond butter, these would make a great post-workout snack! There are many versions of this recipe on all the "grain-free" websites online, but this one seems the simplest.



  1. Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray a 10.5" X 7" pan with Pam.
  3. In a large bowl, beat all the ingredients together (EXCEPT FOR THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS) until smooth and creamy.
  4. Mix in ¾ cup chocolate chips with a spoon.
  5. Spread into the greased baking pan.
  6. Bake in a 325°-oven for approx. 25 minutes. They will still be a little moist in the middle when done.
  7. Remove pan from oven and turn off oven. Spread remaining ½ cup chocolate chips on top of warm blondies.
  8. Put back in warm oven (with heat OFF) - until chocolate is just melted. Remove from oven. Spread melted chocolate carefully over top.
  9. Let cool.
  10. Cut into squares.
