Paleo Gingerbread Blondies are the perfect treat for the holidays. I look forward to December coming around every year so I have a good excuse to bake allllll the things! Aren’t holiday treats the best?!
If you love gingerbread you’ll love these Paleo Gingerbread Cupcakes!
These gluten free blondies are made without butter and refined sugar. They’re super easy to throw together and a wonderful addition to your Christmas baking list.
They also have an irresistible chewy texture you’re gonna love!
Paleo Gingerbread Blondies – Ingredients
Molasses (not blackstrap molasses)
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!
