Flourless Blondies

I was recently asked by a reader to create a flourless blondie recipe.  So that is how these flourless blondies came about.  If you had my super moist flourless brownies, you know that beans can work very well in dessert recipes.  These flourless blondies are so yummy.  I was eating the batter right out of the food processor.  That is one good thing about making healthy vegan desserts.  You can eat the batter without any fear of getting sick. :)

These healthy blondies are so good!  I am telling you no one will ever know there is beans in these.  Kind of like my peanut butter cookies.  My kids were totally fooled!  These blondies are vegan, gluten free.  If you want to make them grain free, you could probably use quinoa flakes in place of the oats.  Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain.

Grain Free Blondies

I don’t know if you have noticed, but I am trying to branch out and create recipes that are grain and gluten free.  I have already done so with my Grain Free Blueberry Tart and my Healthy Key Lime Tart.  I know many of you are following those diets, so I try to make recipes for everyone.  These grain free blondies are another example.

I undercooked mine slightly because I wanted to maintain a gooey and soft center.  These are also date sweetened and there is no other sugar added.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • In a food processor, grind up the dates.
  • Add the almond butter and coconut oil and pulse together.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and add in the eggs, vanilla and milk.
  • Lastly, add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Cut a sheet of parchment paper and place it into an 8X8 baking dish.
  • Make sure you have enough paper to stick out the sides so you can easily grab the whole thing out of the pan.
  • Spread dough evenly inside the dish. The dough will be sticky and using wet hands or a wet spatula can make it easier.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Let it cool completely before removing, and then cut the blondies into squares with a pizza cutter.

I stored mine in the fridge. Enjoy!
