Whole Wheat Almond Butter Blondies
These Whole Wheat Almond Butter Blondies are made with better-for-you ingredients, but taste totally sinful and delicious! No one will know these are packed with protein and fiber!
- 3/4 cup almond butter if using natural, stir it first
- 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour such as Bob's Red Mill
- 1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8" square baking pan with foil or parchment, extending the foil or parchment over the sides of the pan. Spray the foil or parchment lightly with cooking spray; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, oil, and brown sugar until smooth. I like using a whisk for this. Whisk in the milk and vanilla slowly, followed by the dry ingredients until a smooth, thick batter comes together. Fold in the dark chocolate chunks.
Spread the batter (it'll be thick) into the baking dish in an even layer. Sprinkle the top with more dark chocolate chunks, if desired. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and appears set. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares, as the blondies may crumble if cut too early or while too warm.
