Almond Butter Blondies

Paleo Almond Butter Blondies contain only 6 ingredients and are super easy to make! All you need for this amazing paleo dessert recipe is almond butter, eggs, honey, salt, baking soda, and chocolate chips. Really, it's that simple!

Although Paleo Almond Butter Blondies are flourless, and made with an almond butter base they taste quite cakey. My husband says he can't tell the difference between these healthy blondies and the “regular” kind!

In other rave reviews, I've cooked up this recipe more than a dozen times for my little league team. Even the batches I considered “failures” were devoured by those testers. Let's not forget, I coach a bunch of 10 year boys who drink blue gatorade and are used to eating high-sugar, all-American desserts, not the healthy paleo desserts that I make. Although these flourless paleo bars are not that sweet, my team absolutely loved 'em.

My Paleo Almond Butter Blondie recipe is based on one from Kelly at Celiac Chicks. She traces the original recipe back to one from 2003 in Family Circle magazine.

  1. I have made these for a variety of events, from a passover seder, to Christmas and day sailing trips….and now in three different states, CO, CA and NY. They are always a hit. I love seeing people enjoy these and sharing the recipe. Thank you Elana!

    • Laura, remove these from the oven when the edges are done and the center will firm up when the blondies are cooled down.

  2. Loved it! Easy to make and all the family liked it. I was going to ashow to storage and for how long but it did not last 48 hours lol.

  3. Wow! I have just made these and they are amazing! They didn’t look anything like the picture when I pulled them out of the oven, so I felt a little disappointed as I cut them into squares. That feeling quickly disappeared upon tasting these. So, so good. Will definitely make these again and they were super speedy to prepare.

  4. Hello Elana,
    I love browsing your site. Everything I’ve made of yours turns out really, really good. Today I had to adapt these slightly by using cashew butter. I also added more sea salt to make up for the roasted flavor of almonds. It worked! I love your original, but this was delicious too. Thanks for all your gifts of recipes to us readers.

  5. My friends and I have made these several times and they are delicious. We substitute the agave and honey for maple syrup. We have also used carob chips. Be prepared to want to devour the entire pan.

    • Keandra, thanks for letting me know that these are so good people need to be prepared to want to devour the entire pan!

  6. We have a chocolate allergy in our house, so I wondered if anyone has made these and substituted nuts (or, maybe carob?) for the chocolate chips. Elana? Anyone?

  7. These were the delicious! I was so happy when these came out so perfect. I just started eating paleo around a month ago so everything is still kind of new. But these were so simple and easy to make. And its only me and my mom in the house so I didn’t want to make that much so I cut the ingredients in half (2 eggs, though) but were still perfect. so YAY, this is definitely one for the books.

  8. Subbed 1c honey for the agave and I learned the hard way-
    Do not use a Vitamix to make these! It overheated the machine. I was able to transfer to a food processor. Came out super yummy but it was a sticky mess!
    I might use them as a base for a Paleo-pizookie for a kids birthday party one day
