Treat yourself Tuesday is here – let there be chocolate! I posted these Coconut Flour Blondies a few weeks ago on Instagram and many of you asked for the recipe, but I hadn’t quite perfected it yet. Until now.
I’m still learning how to bake with coconut flour, which takes a bit more recipe testing because this flour absorbs way more liquid compared to gluten free flours. And I really wanted to make sure these were Midwest “bar” material, meaning portable and potluck worthy.
A few more pans were made – tweaks to how many bananas, number of eggs, and coconut oil were happily tested. And finally these Coconut Flour Blondies came out just perfect.
They’re quick and easy to make, using only one bowl and just a few ingredients. I found that adding just a little bit of oat flour was best for the texture. Super soft and chewy, it’s hard to resist just one of these coconutty, chocolate chip studded bars. No one would ever know they’re healthy-ish!
I could have tried using an unrefined sweetener like maple syrup or honey, but let’s be real – all blondies MUST have brown sugar.
Naturally gluten-free and dairy-free (if you use dairy-free chocolate chips) they’re a sweet treat that all can swoon over. Mixing the coconut oil and brown sugar creates such a fabulous aroma that will make you want to eat the batter by the spoonful.
I love the flavor combination, there’s just something so right about bananas and chocolate together.
The result is truly delicious. And who doesn’t need another way to use overripe bananas?
