Paleo Tahini Blondies are like a lighter low-carb version of the classic dessert. These bars are made completely grain-free and use almond flour for a blondie that is high in protein and healthy fats.

What is the difference between a blondie and a brownie?

A brownie is a chocolate flavoured bar that is made with either cocoa powder, chocolate or a combination of the two. Blondies are not chocolate flavoured and are typically made with brown sugar to give them butterscotch or caramel-like taste.

For this recipe, we are using coconut sugar rather than brown sugar to keep these bars paleo friendly. I use coconut sugar to health-ify a lot of my dessert recipes, like Salted Caramel Coconut Bliss Balls and these No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Brownies!
