I loved these Paleo Blondies from The Nourished Kitchen Guide to Grain-free & Dairy-free Baking, Sweets and Treats. They were extremely easy to make. I wasn’t sure about adding unsweetened coconut to the paleo blondies but it really adds a nice touch to the recipe. I threw the ingredients together in 5 minutes and let it bake. I did disregard one set of directions; I didn’t wait for the paleo blondies to completely cool before eating one. I don’t know about you but I can never wait to taste test stuff. The paleo blondies reminded me of chocolate chip cookie bars.
I also took this as an opportunity to try a moody type of photography. I hope you like the look.
