The base is largely made up of natural peanut butter.  These could really also be called “PB&J Blondies”, but since the dark chocolate is so prominent as well I wanted to add that into the title. You could also sub the peanut butter for cashew butter or another runny nut butttah. I haven’t tried it yet, but I suspect tahini would be amazinggggg.

Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8×8″ square pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the coconut sugar and egg very well in a large bowl. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and stir to combine.   Fold in the Coconut Flour + baking soda + salt/cinnamon  just until all the coconut flour is all absorbed. Lastly, fold in the raspberries and chocolate chunks, reserving some to sprinkle on top.
  3. Bake for 16 – 18 minutes.  Cool, then cut into squares!  Store in the fridge for a few days or freezer for a few months.
