Gluten-free Blondies Tips & Tricks
Although these almond butter blondies are easy to make, here are a few tips and tricks to make sure you're blondies are swoon-worthy!
- Use high-quality creamy almond butter. The best almond butter for this recipe is one that contains minimal ingredients (ideally just almonds) and has a creamy texture. You can use a chunky style almond butter, just keep in mind there will chunks of nuts in your blondies and they may not be as gooey.
- Make sure to beat the wet ingredients well. We don't want to scramble the eggs, but it is crucial to mix the eggs, almond butter, and coconut sugar well. This creates that luscious butter top layer.
- Don't skip the coconut flour. The coconut flour provides the little but of structure needed for these blondies. If you omit the coconut flour, they may be suuuper gooey (aka too gooey to cut). If needed, you can substitute cassava flour or gf oat flour.
- Be careful not to over bake. If we are going for a gooey blondie, we want to make sure not to over bake them into a cake-like blondie. Use a toothpick to make sure they are done before pulling them out of the oven. They will continue to cook more in the pan when they are cooling.
