Flourless Almond Butter Blondies (Gluten-Free, Paleo)

Print

Flourless, almond butter blondies because;

1 – YUM!

2 – I don’t know why people seem so adamant that it has to be brownies or blondies. It’s like asking a parent to choose a favorite child (well maybe not quite but almost) you just can’t do it!  Why do I have to choose?! Can’t I just have both?!

3 – I hate making decisions. Like, really truly do not like it! Please tell me I’m not the only one?!

Decision making really just makes me feel stressed out and you know that stressed spelled backwards is desserts so.. desserts it is!

Dessert doesn’t ask questions (or force you make stressful decisions) dessert understands. Am I right?! You know I am.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Almond butter is a delicious way to take advantage of the numerous health benefits of almonds. A protein powerhouse, almonds are one of the most nutritionally packed nuts. Almond butter is also a great source of vitamin E, and phosphorous. It is a great source of monounsaturated fat, protein, and fiber which are essential for heart health. Almond butter is also rich in magnesium that relaxes the veins and arteries improving blood flow and the circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
