Almond Butter Squash Blondies

By Sarah Axtell, ND January 3, 2013

These make a delicious treat or snack. They are a great way to get extra veggies in because they contain squash…yes, squash! The combination of squash and almond butter makes them moist, delicious and super healthy! The almond butter and almond flour provides protein, making it an ideal snack or treat that will not spike your blood sugar. And the butternut squash or pumpkin provides cancer-fighting antioxidants.

Almond flour (aka almond meal) is one of my favorite gluten free baking flours because it is not only gluten-free, but it is grain-free. Grains can be difficult to digest and are loaded with carbohydrates, causing blood sugar spikes and crashes.  Here is a healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe from my food blog using almond flour.

Almond Butter Squash Blondies

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (If you do not have almond flour, you can use 1 total cup almond butter)
  • 1 cup cooked and mashed pumpkin or butternut squash (fresh or canned works fine)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!
