Paleo Gingerbread Blondies – Ingredients

Almond flour
Coconut sugar
Baking soda
Sea salt
Almond butter
Molasses (not blackstrap molasses)
Vanilla extract

Paleo Gingerbread Blondies – How To Make

First, combine your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk until combined. This includes the almond flour, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, baking soda, spices, and sea salt.

Next, add the 1/2 cup almond butter, molasses, egg, vanilla, and oil. I used avocado oil but you can substitute melted coconut oil if you’d like.

Gently stir the mixture until a thick dough is formed. Avoid over mixing.

Add the mixture to a parchment paper lined 8×8 baking dish. I used a glass dish like this one. Use your hands to spread and flatten the gingerbread dough into the pan.

Bake in a 350℉ oven for 25-27 minutes. The cook time will vary oven to oven, so be sure to keep an eye on them.

Let the blondies cool in the pan.

For the powdered sugar topping, blend a small amount of maple sugar in a blender, and sprinkle on top. You can substitute regular powdered sugar if you don’t need to be strict paleo.

Paleo Gingerbread Blondies – Tips

  • Don’t over mix the batter. Gently fold in the wet ingredients until a thick batter is formed.
  • If you want to turn these into paleo gingerbread chocolate chunk blondies, by all means, mix in 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter.
  • Let cool in the pan. This gingerbread blondie recipe will continue to set up as it cools, giving it that yummy chewy texture.
  • For the optional topping, blend a few tablespoons of granulated maple sugar in a blender and sprinkle on top! Or substitute regular powdered sugar if you don’t need the blondies to be strict paleo.

These blondies were so fun to make! I hope you enjoy them!
