If you’ve been around here of late, you may have noticed that apples have taken a starring role in my most recent recipes. Whether it’s apple hand pies or applesauce cake, I’ve got you covered, and I have plans for more.
But, for today, it’s time for a little pumpkin.
Pumpkin in the form of chocolate chip studded blondies. In my opinion, pumpkin and chocolate are a hard combo to resist, and these pumpkin blondies are no different.
Made with almond flour, a bit of coconut flour, and almond butter, they are surprisingly full of protein and fiber. And with an added boost of Vitamin A from the pumpkin, we can pretty much agree that these soft, chewy, and slightly gooey bars are healthy-ish!
These chocolate chip pumpkin blondies are part of my friend’s (Sara, from Cake Over Steak) annual #virtualpumpkinparty. Follow the link here, and you can check out all the sweet and savory pumpkin recipes you’ll need this season.
