Cast Iron Chocolate Chip Keto/Paleo Blondie
Uhm, yum! Dessert time! Here is a recipe that can easily be modified whether you’re keto or paleo. I hope you, my lovely and amazing readers don’t mind that I list alternatives for the recipes. The eating styles can be so similar I just think it’s great to have options available for all, especially since I’m trying out Paleo because of my post op life. Since my current lifestyle is paleo, I am listing paleo ingredients first, and then keto alternatives. If you are keto, paleo, low carb, or just looking for healthy recipes, please let me know! Anyways, more important things, like how amazing these chocolate chip blondies are.
I’m going to mostly let the picture speak for itself, but seriously, these were a huge hit. I am sometimes not a huge fan of copycat recipes because they can often leave much to be desired. But, these (and well, all my recipes, haha) are the exception to the rule. They’re soft, chewy, and just melt in your mouth. The best way to enjoy them is fresh out of the oven. By the way, these store well and are very easy to make. Oh yes!
- 1 & 1/2 c almond meal or almond flour
- 1 whole egg +1 yolk
- 1/4 C maple syrup
- 1/4 C coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 c Paleo chocolate chips
- sugar-free chocolate chips for keto
- very dark chocolate can also work
Preheat your oven to 350F.
In a 10 inch cast iron skillet (or similar size baking dish), coat a thin layer of coconut oil and set aside. Obviously, the bigger the skillet, the thinner the blondie, and visa versa. It just really depends on your preference.
Combine almond meal, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl. Beat eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla and add to dry ingredients.
Then, once combined, mix in chocolate chips and spread in an even layer in cast iron pan.
Just bake for 25 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
