Grain Free Blondies (Vegan Too)

Grain Free Blondies you guys!!  I don’t know if you have noticed, but I am trying to branch out and create more recipes that are grain and gluten free.

I have already done so with my Grain Free Blueberry Tart and my Healthy Key Lime Tart.

Since the gluten free and grain free diets seem to be a trend nowadays, I thought you may enjoy this recipe.  These grain free blondies may be the start of many more grain free desserts in the future.


Grain Free Blondies


I under cooked mine slightly because I wanted to maintain a gooey and soft center.  Another awesome thing about these blondies is that they are only sweetened with dates.  I love dates!

Soft and gooey blondies that are grain free!



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

    1. For each egg do 1 T flax meal + 3 T warm water. Whisk and throw in the fridge for a minute. It will get gummy like an egg. Chia seeds work as well, but you need about 15 minutes for them to get gummy.
    1. It's like peanut butter, but it's made with almonds. You can buy it anywhere. It is sold with the peanut butters. You can also make it yourself if you have a food processor and 20 minutes.
  1. Ohhhh my goodness I love dates SO MUCH and these look so gooey and fantastic!! I also adore almond flour and butter. I am pinning these to try sometime very soon!!
  2. Delicious! I added fresh ground nutmeg and cinnamon, for spice blondies. Yum! Thank you for providing the recipe. I make a 12 cup batch of cashew/ macadamia nut butter and store in the fridge for these kinds of recipes.
  3. Just made this recipe. Can't wait til its out of the oven. It already smells awesome. My 4yr old licked the spoon and bowl (thought it was peanut tho; I didn't say anything because she's a picky eater... Like her brother) hopefully she's the same with the finished ones :)
      1. Yummy as hell, even tho I was the only one eating them.... Only downside is that the calorie count is quite high so I should be treat wise and only have 1 a day..... Or workout harder :-) well done. Great recipe. Keep em coming.
    1. You can use any kind of date, but the medjool dates are larger. If you use an other kind, you may need to add a few more.
      1. So I planned on picking up the dates to try this and then I saw the sugar content :( My son is insullin resistant and def a no no with that amt :( Can you think of anything I can sub for the dates that are not so high in sugar?
  4. Those look delish but WOW they would be expensive to make! Since nuts are fumigated, we eat only organic versions to avoid the toxins. I noticed that more and more Paleo people are moving away from quite so many nuts for numerous reasons. I wonder about other gluten free options like millet or quinoa?
    1. I have not tried baking with millet or quinoa at all. Can you? I don't think either one of those is paleo though.
  5. The only medjool dates I can find in my area are made in a facility that also processes peanuts and other nuts and my son has a nut allergy so I can't use any of the recipes made with medjool dates. Any other substitution I could use in these besides the medjool dates?
    1. Wheat flour should work with a 1:1 ratio. I'm not sure about coconut flour, because it can be fickle. If you try with coconut flour, please let me know how it works out.
