These 7-ingredient gluten free peppermint chocolate chip blondies are a decadent holiday dessert without the dairy, butter, or refined sugar! Made in under 30 minutes.
If using a 9×9 pan, the bars will be much thinner than pictured and may require less baking time. Do not add peppermint or pretzels over the top before baking – save until the end when the bars are cooled.
You can sub the almond butter for all-natural peanut butter, cashew butter, or pecan butter, but it must be on the ‘thinner’ side. Thick nut butters will not yield as great of a result. Make sure you mix the nut butter of choice well, to incorporate all the natural oil found at the top. I let mine sit upside down for 10-15 minutes before opening and stirring.
