These blondies have been my late obsession! They are super simple and take no time to make and they just hit the spot when you crave something chocolately and sweet. They are completely gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free and vegan! Yes, they are literally for everyone! 🙂 For this recipe I have used Tropical Sun Organic Coconut flour which combined with ground almonds creates the perfect fudgy and gooey consistency, perfect for blondies or brownies.
Makes about 8-10 blondes depending on the size
1 cup of ground almond
1/2 cup of Tropical Sun Organic coconut flour https://tropicalsunfoods.com/products/coconut-flour-organic
1/2 cup of coconut oil soft but not melted
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
2 tablespoons of runny peanut butter (the runnier the better)
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips + extra for sprinkling on top
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds + 4 tablespoons of water
1 tablespoon of almond milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or powder
A pinch of sea salt
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. In a small bowl mix the flaxseeds with the water. Leave it into one side for 5 minutes until it thickens up and becomes gloopy.
In a large bowl mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl mix together the coconut oil and the coconut sugar. Using a hand blender blitz it up until you have a buttery, creamy kind of consistency. Add the the flaxseeds mixture, vanilla extract and the almond milk. Give it a good mix.
Mix tougher the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until everything is well incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread the mixture in a baking tin covered with parchment paper. Use your fingers to spread the dough across the tin. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips.
Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes until the edges are starting to turn golden brown. Remove the from the oven and leave it to cool down for 10 minutes in the tin before transfer it to a cooling rack. Make sure the blondies are 100% cold (very important otherwise they will fall apart) before cut them into squares. Enjoy! Store any leftover in an airtight container for few days.
