{flourless vegan} peanut butter chocolate chip blondies

by purelytwins

Happy Friday luvs,

Yesterday was a tad chilly around here. We had to pull 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.

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!

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.

Peanut butter basically makes up 50% of my diet. I’m only slightly exaggerating, but I seriously eat it every day.

can you sub bananas for the plantains?

purelytwins March 14, 2014 - 2:10 pm

you can give it a try, we are not sure Cindy, as bananas are not as starchy as plantains, maybe try more green like bananas

Do you have the calorie/nutritional information on these?

purelytwins March 19, 2014 - 9:20 am

no we don’t sorry, we don’t really track that, they are very nutrient dense so little goes a long way.

Christinad1122 August 29, 2014 - 4:10 pm

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!

purelytwins August 29, 2014 - 5:23 pm

Christina they are soft cake like, kind of like a soft cookie.

Bárbara December 21, 2014 - 8:17 am

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

purelytwins December 21, 2014 - 8:34 pm

yay! so happy to hear it ! enjoy

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?

purelytwins January 14, 2015 - 1:55 pm

you can try using very green bananas (unripe) to replace the plantain

June April 19, 2016 - 5:07 pm

These are delicious, moist and light! The nut butter/plantain combination gives these a nice texture similar to a “made with grain” item. I was surprised that 2 T.maple syrup was enough sweetener. BTW, I used a mixture of peanut butter and almond butter and it was great.

Thank you for a great flour less, egg free recipe!


purelytwins April 20, 2016 - 9:42 am

Glad you enjoyed the recipe 🙂

Leah April 27, 2016 - 1:44 am

Yum! I’m going to try this with sunbutter. Looks delicious!

Greta January 2, 2017 - 7:18 pm

Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes. Have been trying many. Am not sure how to measure plantains. You provide ounces/grams. Are you weighing the plantain? I do not have a scale. Can you convert to cups? Thank you for the help.
