I’m sorry, guys. I had no intention of posting another Paleo recipe this week but the cheesy, white floury bread I made yesterday totally failed. I think I must’ve burned the yeast or something because it just refused to rise. At all.
So you get these Paleo Chocolate Chip Blondies! And I really don’t even feel that bad because they’re awesome. My husband had 7 of them last night. Yeah, that’s pretty much the entire pan.
And btw, how unfair is it that men can eat 7 blondies on top of meals and other snacks and not gain weight?
Anyyyway, we’re all sorts of iced/snowed in right now which is fun because I can stay in sweatpants all day and only go outside when the (idiot) husky opens the gate, lets herself out of the yard, and then makes me chase her around the neighborhood before finally making the circle and ending up back at our porch. But it’s not so fun because the kids and the husband are all driving me crazy.
If I have to hear, “HE WON’T GIVE ME A TURN!” one more time…
I don’t even know what I’ll do. But it won’t be pretty.
I’m going to have the blondie I hid from my husband for breakfast and then lock myself in my room and binge watch all the Madam Secretary episodes on the DVR.
You should make these even if you aren’t Paleo. They are really delicious and so full of coconut and chocolate chips – you will hardly even notice that the actual blondie part is made from almond flour instead of regular flour! I promise.

- 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper or spray with baking spray.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together almond meal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Beat in coconut oil, honey, egg, and vanilla extract. Use a rubber spatula to fold in coconut and chocolate chips.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.
