{flourless vegan} peanut butter chocolate chip blondies

Happy Friday luvs,

Yesterday was a tad chilly around here. We had to pull back out our scarves and heavy jackets for our daily walk. Oh Spring please come soon. We did have a little fun yesterday in the midst of having a few video issues by taking a little shopping break over at hobby lobby.  Such a dangerous store.

I (Lori) was in the market for some new decorations for the mantle over the fireplace. This has been on my to do list for a long time. I will have to share a picture here soon. I was so excited because I saw some really cute things. It was hard for me to decide.  Usually I am pretty good about making decisions, but decorations for the house take some thought.

One thing that doesn’t take a lot of thought…blondies. Especially peanut butter ones. Since you weren’t too big chocolate thin mint french toast fans (it’s okay just more for us which we have it in our freezer to enjoy here soon) hopefully peanut butter is better.

These past few weeks we’ve been on a peanut butter kick. Peanut butter was definitely our go-to nut growing up. Probably most of us would agree. And one thing we remember from childhood is having peanut butter with chocolate. Definitely a favorite of Michelle’s.

You might be thinking of our ingredients for our blondies a little strange… but… probably not.

Oh wait… these peanut butter blondies are only made from 5 ingredients?  Delicious bites of peanut butter with chocolate chips. Pure bliss.

No regrets either. They’re just SO worth it! So dense, full of flavor.

And another great thing is that these are so easy to whip up in no time (which could be dangerous) and can be in your belly in half hour! Dangerous for sure.

Plus, these blondies are rich, packed with chocolate chips, and so wonderfully soft. Yep dangerous.

Bonus is there aren’t any weird ingredients either. Nope. Just simple ingredients like plantains, peanut butter, maple syrup, chocolate chips and coconut oil.  Really just 5 main ingredients.

And the real kicker with these is that they are vegan friendly!

 Peanut butter chip blondies that are gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free, soy-free and paleo friendly.

If you are vegan, paleo, or just like good wholesome treat from time to time we think you’ll really enjoy them! We sure did.

Since we use plantains we were able to keep the amount of sugar content low as plantains provide natural sweetness. Promise you won’t miss that extra sugar as these blondies are full of flavor!  Mom we know you would be all over these ;)  And the peanut butter we used was the freshly ground whole peanuts. Nothing added to it.

Nothing beats chocolate with peanut butter, especially with good company making memories.

    I just made these and was wondering the end consistency of the bars? Are the to be crunchy? Or like a soft cookie? I’m trying to determined if I under cooked them or not!

    Just made these! They are sooooo fluffly! I loved them, thanks! (I used a nut butter mix though, ran out of peanut butter).

    Here in New Zealand we cannot get very easily at all and certainly not out in the country where I live, is there anything else I could use instead? I so want to make this recipe for. My kids! Would bananas be a swap for plantain?
