Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond butter stirred well to incorporate any oil sitting on top
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup canned pureed pumpkin NOT pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • oil for greasing pan I use coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the almond butter, egg, pureed pumpkin, and honey until well combined.
  • Add vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, salt, and baking soda to the bowl and whisk again. The batter will be very thick and sticky.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and use a spatula to evenly spread the mixture in the pan.
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 25 to 30 minutes. If you prefer the blondies to be gooey, reduce the cook time slightly to 20 minutes.
  • Allow the blondies to cool before cutting into squares and serving. These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days or frozen for up to 3 months.

Notes

  • Any nut butter can be used in place of the almond butter but the flavor of the blondies will be altered. 
  • Fresh or canned pureed pumpkin can be used. 
  • Top the blondies with dairy free vanilla cashew ice cream and drizzle with Paleo caramel sauce for the ultimate autumn dessert!
