And they are so much easier than cookies to make because you whip up the batter and spread it into a 8×8 inch pan.

As the original recipe was sponsored by Barney Butter (May 2017) and we were Barney Butter ambassadors, I want to tell you a bit more about Barney Butter, in case you’re not familiar with them.

They are our favorite Almond Butter brand and have been for years (which is why we were a brand ambassador).

In fact, they are the only almond butter brand use for our go to Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites, which are a staple in our house.

They later introduced to their almond flour.

We love Barney Butter not only because their products are Certified Gluten-Free, peanut-free, non-gmo and vegan, but we think they have the best flavor & texture!

Hope you love these Blondies as much as we do!

  1. Oh my word.These are the best.I did sub peanut butter for the almond butter.They were a hit with my sister and friend Joni.

  2. Oh my! These bars are SO good!!!!!! I subbed a 1/4 cup of the sugar with honey and decreased the amount of the brown sugar by about 1/4 cup (just to give my toddler less sugar) and it was still plenty sweet! It will definitely be on regular rotation at our house. Thanks for this recipe!

  3. OMG! Another amazing recipe! I will say I did sub in peanut butter, as that is what I had, and then cut down to 1/4 cup brown sugar and wow so amazing! Every recipe you write, I just love! Thank you so much for another amazing treat.

    1. Hi. Great question! I’ve never made them without egg. I like to substitute flax egg in some recipes and you could try that but I haven’t done it with this recipe. For this recipe, I would try mixing 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal with 2.5 tablespoon water in a small bowl and stir to combine. Let rest for 5 minutes to thicken. Let me know if you try it.

  4. Hi these look so awesome! Can I substitute almond flour for 1:1 gluten free baking flour? Would I need to add more binding ingredients as baking powder or soda?

  5. So good. I made these my first week in quarantine and they provided a much needed source of comfort. Nothing better than an easy homemade treat. So delicious!

  6. These were so good! Not too sweet and perfectly soft. I substituted the almond flour with King Arthur’s Gluten Free All Purpose flour and I only had a little light brown sugar left in the pantry so I used half light brown and half dark brown. Overall they turned out great and my entire family is enjoying them!

  7. Just made these and they are super awesome. I used a combination of chopped dark and bitter sweet ghirardelli chocolate because that’s what I had.

    Thank you, will make again!
