Almond Butter Blondies

It’s the new year, my friends, and I for one am excited to refocus and reenergize myself. I  decided to create a recipe that feels like a decadent dessert, but is actually grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free, and packed with superfoods+ protein for the perfect grab and go treat. I developed the recipe for these almond butter blondies (with dark chocolate chips & chopped walnuts!) using Orgain Organic Superfood Protein. I used the vanilla bean flavor and found that it lended itself perfectly to this blondie recipe. These literally take 10 minutes to make and you don’t even have to bake them. You will not regret whipping up a batch….

  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp raw almond butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of sea salt

Directions:

Add all ingredients (except for the chocolate chips and walnuts) to a medium sized bowl. Mix together using either a spoon or your hands (I find it’s easier to combine into a dough-like mixture using my hands).  Next, add in the chocolate chips and walnuts and mix everything together until combined.

Next, on a parchment lined pan of your choice (I used a traditional loaf pan) press the dough down so that it is evenly distributed. Freeze for at least an hour, then remove, cut into slices, and enjoy! Should be stored in the freezer or refrigerator in an air tight container.

 

Enjoy!
