What are Blondie Bars?

A blondie is a dessert bar also known as a “blonde brownie.” It has the same texture as a regular brownie but is made without cocoa. They are usually flavored with toffee, peanut butter, or chunky candies for added texture. Blondies also resemble cookie bars – but are made with all brown sugar instead of granulated white sugar.

Extra tips for making Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

  • For this recipe I used almond butter – you can also use peanut butter or cashew butter instead.
  • This recipe doesn’t have to be gluten free or used with just almond flour – replace the almond flour with regular all-purpose flour or a gluten free flour blend.
  • Store these bars in a sealed ziplock bag or container at room temperature or in refrigerator to stay extra fresh and chewy.

    These were great! The only thing was they were kind of crumbly and not liquid-y when combining before putting in the oven. Wondering if maybe they need some almond milk? Any other tips?
