When someone first introduced me to the concept of Blondies I was unimpressed.
Brownies without chocolate? What’s the point!!!?
But now I am older and wiser (joke) and more experienced in my cake eating ability (no joke) then I have come to LOVE blondies. They are like the blonder more vanilla-y sister of the brunette brownies and are still yummy.
These are gluten, dairy, grain and sugar-free, of course, and just a bunch of whole foods all shoved together into some yummy goodness.
And if you know your a bit addicted to the sugar, and want to switch to using natural sweeteners but have no idea how OR just want more awesome recipes like this one then make sure you click below to get my priceless Natural Sweetener Recipe eGuide. where I share with your

- Then add the other ingredients, except the choc chips/nib, and blend until smooth.

This would also work with almonds or pecan too!
