Coconut Flour Blondies

By Sarah Axtell, ND June 4, 2014

I have been baking with coconut flour a lot these days. I like it because it is grain-free so it is well-tolerated even by those who have problems digesting and metabolizing grains. And in general, I am a big fan of coconut– coconut flakes, coconut milk, coconut oil, coconut water and now, coconut flour! If you are curious about the health benefits of coconut, here you go!

I use the “Let’s Do Organic” brand of coconut flour. You can easily find it at any health food store!

These blondies make a nice desert for you and your family. They are grain-free (thus gluten-free) and refined-sugar free.

Coconut Flour Blondies

  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all wet ingredients in a food processor- dates, coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla. Process until smooth.
2. Combine all dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt) in a bowl. Mix together.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix.
4. Add in chocolate chips.
5. Spread dough in greased 8×8 inch pan. Bake for approx. 22 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.

Enjoy!
