Paleo and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Blondies

Since being diagnosed with Celiac disease the adjustment has been pretty easy to make. Most of the food I eat is naturally gluten free anyway and when I crave things like cereal or bread there are plenty of gluten free replacements available. Every once in a while though I do get a twinge of jealously when I see a really awesome recipe using regular flour or other gluten contaminated ingredients. I recently saw this awesome recipe on Shay’s blog and thought they sounded amazing. I got inspired to make my own Paleo and gluten free version that would hopefully be just as good. Now I can’t promise these are any comparison to the original but they did get my gluten-eating sister stamp of approval!

      Hmm that’s a tough one! I’d tried to stick with a nut butter maybe almond butter, sunflower seed, or peanut if you’re allergic to cashews! Otherwise maybe coconut oil! The nut butter gives them a lot of flavor though!

    Oh wow! This is super! Looks like the true delight! Well I’m not a very good cook, so something simple always worth trying. I love the recipes here and on Lucie’s blog (I think you know who am I talking about) 😀

    I seriously don’t know how you continue to come up with such delicious recipes! I’m constantly inspired by your creativity. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’ve never actually MADE blondies. I’ve had them (of course) but never homemade. I’m definitely bookmarking this recipe!
