Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Blondies – Lightened-up, thick, chewy bars loaded with chocolate chips and peanut butter. They are also 120 calories per serving! It doesn’t get any better than that!
Hey-Hi, pal! Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful Easter!!
Can I ramble on just a little more about how I will celebrate Easter this coming weekend? And how I’m so lucky to be celebrating a week later because this week all the egg dyes will be 75% off? AND all those cute and colorful Easter Baskets will also be at least 50% off at Walgreens?! Yeah. If you couldn’t tell, this kind of stuff excites me. I feel like I’m getting it all for free. Kind of?
So what’s our next Holiday that will be packed with all.the.food? Is it Memorial Day? That’s long ways away, but before we know it, we will be pushing someone in the pool and sipping on our favorite poolside Cucumber Mojitos. CAN’T WAIT!
For now, while we have this simple and not so warm Springy April, let’s just sit back and enjoy some Blondies. After all, they are amazing and, like, 60 calories less than their counterpart. High-Five!
If you’re a fan of the classic flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter, you’ll love these bars!
It’s been years since we last talked Blondies, but these babes have been in the making for quite some time. While playing around with these Zucchini Brownies AND my Peanut Butter Samoas, I was able to put it all together and make us these amazing bites.
These Peanut Butter Blondies are serious. I used my all time favorite, my beloved Almond Meal/Flour, and paired it up with a nice helping of Peanut Butter and chocolate chips. My other half thought the Almond Butter ones were better, but that’s because he’s not into PB. Weirdo.
Having said that, obvi, you can use any nut butter that you want, but go with Peanut Butter. It’s amazing.
Consistency-wise, these bars will satisfy any cookie/brownie/blondie craving you ever had. They’re soft and perfectly moist, and I really, really like them. AND I hope you will really, really like them, too!
