Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies

It’s time for some serious funfetti! This Low-Carb Funfetti Blondie recipe is made with 7 ingredients total and can be thrown together in a jiffy. Mr. Pantry and my friends love these homemade low-carb blondies and couldn’t get enough of them.

Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies Recipe

Most funfetti blondies recipes contain over a cup of sugar. My Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies contain one-quarter cup of maple syrup, and are made with a low-carb almond butter base, rather than white flour. I came upon the idea of adding sprinkles to a blondie recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen. I then updated my own Almond Butter Blondie recipe (created in 2008) reducing the sweetener to make it low-carb, and turned them into Funfetti Blondies by adding sprinkles. So there you have it! Low-carb Funfetti Blondies.

Funfetti Blondies Recipe with Natural Sprinkles

This low-carb almond butter blondies recipe is made with natural sprinkles that do not contain artificial dyes and coloring. Still, since the sprinkles are made of a corn base they’re not something I eat. I created this recipe for my husband and as a labor of love for my readers. Corn is a highly allergenic food and incredibly hard on my system. If you’re like me and can’t do sprinkles, then substitute with these amazing dark chocolate chips.

How to Make Blondies with Almond Butter

All you need to make this almond butter blondie recipe is almond butter, salt, baking soda, eggs, maple syrup, and stevia, plus sprinkles or chocolate. That’s it! I promise. It’s one of those super easy one-bowl recipes that you can whip up in a jiffy. The biggest problem I have with this is that the blondies are ready to throw in the oven before it’s reached 350F°.

Why Are Blondies Called Blondies?

The other day I was chatting with my Mom and Dad. They asked what I was up to and I told them I’d been figuring out how to make Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies. My Dad then asked what is a blondie? I told him that basically a blondie is a brownie without the cocoa powder. So it’s a blonde brownie instead of a brunette brownie. Blondies typically contain white or dark chocolate chips, unless they’re my Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies, which are made with natural sprinkles.

What is a Blondie?

Essentially, a blondie is a cakey, bar version of a chocolate chip cookie. Although I baked a lot growing up, I did not meet my first blondie until I went to college. The cafeteria at Columbia had the best blondies that we used to eat after tennis practice. That’s when I fell in love with them.

  1. Yummy…..the entire family loved these. I didn’t have “funfetti sprinkles” so I chopped white chocolate and mixed in the batter. The combination of maple syrup with almond butter is delicious.

  2. Made these tonight with coconut sugar instead of the maple and it was fantastic. Thank you for the recipe!

  3. Made these today. I really enjoyed them. My husband came home and ate two straight away. Love your recipes.

  4. Thanks so much Elana!
    These are amazing! My husband who is a tough critic, says he loves them! So easy to make!!

  5. Elana! Thank you so much! This is a family favorite and I’ve played with reducing the honey in your original recipe every time and adding a little Stevia. And, while they’ve always turned out, I just felt the consistency was off a little because of the reduction in honey. I never thought to add an extra egg! I cannot wait to make these. As it happens we are having people over for the football opener this Sunday and I will definitely be making these!! Thank you! I could not live this WOE without all the hardwork you share with your readers!

    • Kim, thanks for your amazing comment, so glad to hear you are enjoying my recipes. Happy funfetti this Sunday :-)

  6. I love your recipes, Elana! Especially your low sugar baked goods. These turned out great with Sunbutter. I omitted the baking soda (to prevent from turning green with the sunbutter) and separately whipped the egg whites for leavening instead!
