Sunday Sweet Treat: (No flour or added Butter or Sugar) Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Image

Can I just say again how much I love baking? I think part of it may be because I enjoy licking the spoon (or dish) before having to clean it :).

Blondies are one of my favorite baked goods. And making them with peanut butter just makes life better. I am always looking for SIMPLE recipes that don’t call for a ton of ingredients. Who doesn’t like being able to whip up a delicious treat with ingredients they already have on hand?

Lately I have been baking most Sundays. I had some time to spare and a sweet tooth (shocker) and had a flourless peanut butter chocolate chip recipe picked out, so voila!

Don’t let the fat content on these scary you away. It is mostly coming from the Natural Peanut Butter used (GOOD fats!). The 14 grams are just under the average natural peanut butter has (16 grams). These aren’t made with butter, brown sugar and flour like most blondies so the batter is thinner/drier than most recipes and not as dense.

Let me know if you try this recipe out and what you think! Enjoy!

I found the original recipe here from a great new blog I found. Check it out!
