My quest to healthify every non-healthy dessert that I love has been so fun, guys. Actually, let me rephrase that. My quest of eating healthified desserts has been so fun, guys. I've had amazing luck with every recipe I've tried and today's case is no different.
Today's recipe comes from Rachel's blog, and if you guys don't already know who Rachel is, get to know her! She is "Bakerita", and she cranks out some pretty mouthwatering desserts, some of which are paleo! The second I saw these chocolate chip blondies on her site, I knew I had to try them.
This was my first time using coconut sugar, and I have to say, I love it! I can't wait to start using it in other desserts. Though the next dessert I'll probably be using it in is these blondies because the pan dissappeared way quicker than anticipated! These chewy, chocolatey squares of goodness were too good to be true y'all. Everyone in my family could not stop raving about them, even my parents who don't like chocolate!

Ingredients:1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips*
Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth and well-combined. Add almond flour, baking soda, and salt, and stir together until fully incorporated. Batter will be fairly thick. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared pan and spread it out into an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes.
Let cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
Note*: In order for these to be 100% Paleo, you would have to use Paleo chocolate.
