Make These Yummy Flourless Peanut Butter Blondies In A Snap!

Flourless peanut butter blondies are not only delicious, they are the ideal gluten-free dessert. They are so chewy and easy to make, the whole family will love them and I bet they won’t even know they are healthy(ish).

These peanut butter blondies have chocolate chips, and who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter together? In fact, I would (and have) eaten a little for breakfast. They go great with a cup of coffee.

What is a Blondie?

What is a blondie and how is it different than a brownie? The main difference comes down to the chocolate. There is no chocolate in a blondie (unless you add chocolate chips). Blondies are sometimes referred to as “blonde brownies” because they are made without cocoa powder and have a delightful vanilla flavor rather than a rich chocolate one. According to my research it seems the blondie came before the brownie by about a decade. I would say they are cousins.

This blondies recipe has only 7 ingredients, most of which I am sure you already have in your pantry. And while they are a decadent treat, they are naturally-sweetened (with peanut butter) and flourless – which makes them naturally gluten-free!
