Whats the difference between blondies and brownies?
Blondies are one of the easiet baking recipes to make and are dense, rich and fudgy. They are basically a vanilla version of a brownie but with more of a caramel flavor which comes from the brown erythritol that is used in this recipe. These almond flour blondies are also gluten free.

Ingredients use for the almond flour blondies
Made with almond flour to keep the carbs to a minimum while still maintaining that fudgy blondie that we all love.
- Almond Flour: ground blanched almonds were used for this recipe which gives it a slightly nutty flavour plus it's low carb and gluten free.
- Brown Sugar Swerve: we use swerve brown sugar to give these blondies a rich caramelized flavor.
- Butter: creamed with the brown sugar swerve giving this low carb blondie a rich buttery flavor. We used salted butter so we don't have to add any additional salt.
- Low Carb Chocolate Chips: adding sugar-free chocolate chips makes these almond flour blondies over-the-top delicies. I used Coco Polo baking tabs.
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla Extract

How to make the almond flour blondies?
STEP 1: First preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (except the chocolate) and set aside.

STEP 3: Now add the eggs and dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until combined. Mix for at least one minute.
- STEP 4: Now stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

These almond flour gluten free blondies can be made in a variety of ways, here are just a few that I have tried.
- Nutty - replace the chocolate chips with walnuts for a nuttier low carb blondie.
- Peanut Butter - for a peanut butter low carb blondie add a ¼ cup of smooth natural peanut butter to the batter. Can also use almond butter.
- Coconut - for a toasted coconut low carb blondie sprinkle unsweetened shredded coconut on top before placing it in the oven.
- Vegan - to make these diary free vegan blondies, swap the butter with vegan butter, and instead of eggs use 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon Ground Flax mixed together with 3 tablespoon water, let sit for 5 minutes to thicken).
