I had a jar of almond butter to use up. What better to do with it than to make blondies! These Gooey, soft, chocolately nut butter bars are a perfect snack or dessert. I use a mix of almond, oat flours (no xanthan) for the recipe to make these gluten-free. Use a cup of any regular flour for regular blondies.

These blondies are One bowl if you mix in the baking soda by sifting the dry ingredients into the wet bowl. They are also palm oil free if you use nut butters that do not contain palm oil.

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp non dairy milk

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 1.5 to 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter or other smooth nut butter

  • 2 tbsp starch arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp or more cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup or more vegan chocolate chunks and chips I add both
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180Âșc.
  2. In a bowl, warm the non dairy milk until hot. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix well until smooth. It will take a minute or so for the nut butter to mix in. (Warm the nut butter before adding so it mixes in quicker).
  3. In another bowl whisk all the dry ingredients. Add to wet and mix in. Fold in the chocolate chunks and chips
  4. Drop the batter on parchment lined pan (8 by 8 inch brownie pan). Spread using oiled hands or spatula. Sprinkle some chocolate chips on top and press in (optional).
  5. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes. (or until a toothpick an inch from the edges comes out almost clean). Cool for 15 mins then remove from the pan. Cool for another few minutes before slicing. Store on the counter for a few days.
Recipe Notes
  • To make regular blondies, use 1 cup of spelt, wheat or all purpose flour (to replace the oat, almond, coconut flours and starch)
  • Note: Nut Butters vary in moisture. Flours also vary in terms of absorption. If you change something in the recipe, add 3/4 cup total flour(dry) to the wet mix and mix in and fold in more flour 1-2 tbsp at a time until the consistency is a stiff batter.
