Blondies made with Almond flour
I’ve got a cozy Fall/Winter treat for you today! 🙂
These Grain-Free Chai Latte Blondies are packed with cozy chai spice flavours and easy to whip up in about 30 minutes.
These blondie bars are made with Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour making then entirely grain-free and gluten-free. Almond flour is a great alternative if you’re looking to bake some treats that don’t have any grains in them.
These bars are also made with coconut sugar rather than regular, but can also be made with brown sugar if that’s your preference.
What is the difference between a brownie and a blondie?
The basic difference between a brownie and a blondie is that brownies are made with chocolate, blondies are not.
But don’t be fooled-that doesn’t mean blondies lack flavour, not at all! This actually gives your bars a chance to take on other delicious flavours, in this case the flavours you love in a chai latte.
How to make this recipe
Start by mixing all the dry ingredients together in one bowl, and the wet ingredients together in another bowl. Then mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
Next press the batter into an 8×8 inch baking pan until evenly spread out, then bake the bar at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes until golden brown on top.
Let the bars cool and then cut into squares. You can optionally top them off with a glaze if you like.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Make sure to use a runny kind of almond butter in this recipe, (the kind where you scoop a spoon and it easily pours off) not the thicker spreadable kind. You can also use tahini if you prefer.
- The batter will be quite thick, I find it easiest to start mixing with a spoon and then to get in there with your (cleaned) hands to mix it all together and press it into the pan.
- Store in an air-tight container for up to a week.

- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup almond butter (the runny kind)
- 2 large eggs, at room temp

- 1 tbsp maple syrup

- To make the glaze, mix the glaze ingredients together in a small pot on medium-low heat then drizzle with a spoon on top of the blondies.

These are fantastic!! My batter was pretty dry so I added a splash of almond milk to help it all come together a little better and they turned out great, the almond butter I used may not have been runny enough
Hello thanks for the recipe, I am gonna try to make it , a question can I use Bobs Red Mills 1to 1 flour, will that be the same
Hi Ana, I haven’t tested these out with regular (or gf) flour, but you may need to make some adjustments to the liquid and the final result may turn out differently.
These are absolutely delish <3<3 such a cozy, fall/winter flavour.
Despite the batter being thick, they were absolutely fluffy.
I would love to add nuts/cranberries to it, to bring in some texture. Do you have any recommendation for a nut that would match these flavours?:)
Hi Shivany, so happy you enjoyed the recipe! Yes the batter is VERY thick, but they puff up a lot and become light and fluffy but still rich and chewy 🙂 I think some add-ins that would be delicious would be chopped pecans or walnuts! Some dried cherries or chocolate chips would be great too!
I really want to give this one a go. Could u use stevia in replacement og the coconut sugar or does it need to be that kind of sugary-onsistency?
Hi Dee, I wouldn’t recommend using stevia in place of coconut sugar or brown sugar as the recipe won’t turn out the same.
