I've had a sweet tooth for as long as I can remember. I'm the girl who anticipates the dessert before dinner and the chocolate before bead, and I own it fully. Lately I've been on a baking kick and have been trying out at least 2-3 new recipes a week at ungodly hours...just to satisfy my cravings for sweetness while also keeping things super clean/gluten-free/refined sugar free/etc etc etc etc. This means I am experimenting with new flours (coconut and almond are still my fave), finding new uses for staples (70% dark chocolate on EVERYTHING), and also finding a whole lot of zen in the process.
One of my go-to internet healthy kitchen gurus is the My New Roots blog. I recently stumbled on her recipes for Almond Butter Blondies, and have pretty much found my soulmate in a pan of warm dessert. It's so good I decided to share it on my channel in my latest vlog. Fast forward to the end if you'd just like to watch melted chocolate food porn.
RECIPE (originally from My New Roots)
2 large eggs
2 splashes of vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted Almond Butter
¾ cup coconut sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt ( I love himalayan pink salt)
1 bar of chopped dark chocolate (70% is the goal!)
Preheat your oven to 325°F
Whisk eggs + vanilla extract together
Then combine coconut sugar, ¼ tsp.salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl.
Add almond butter to the eggs, then the coconut sugar+baking soda and mix together. Add half of the chocolate bar and mix again.
Pour the dough into a pan that works for brownies ( I used parchment paper at My New Roots recommendation mainly because I don't want to deal with the mess).
Add the remaining chocolate over the top and put it into the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes.
Let sit before cutting and enjoy with coconut milk ice cream or just on their own.
