Almond Butter Blondies

What even is a blondie? Blondies are similar to brownies but typically not chocolate flavoured and use brown sugar to give them a more caramel taste compared to a chocolate brownie! This recipe swapped a few ingredients for more nutrient-dense alternatives such as white flour for almond flour and tahini or nut butter for butter, all without sacrificing flavour! Almonds are high in fibre, magnesium and vitamin E and have also been shown to reduce blood pressure levels and reduce the ‘lousy’ LDL cholesterol. This recipe was easy to make and follow and is a great option for a sweet snack or dessert! The recipe boasts 6g of protein and healthy fats from the use of almond flour! My biggest tip is to use a very runny nut butter or tahini, a thicker option will not turn out as well, but feel free to add additional mix-ins such as chopped nuts, or even extra chocolate chips! This recipe is also gluten-free and paleo if using dairy-free chocolate chips!
