If you are looking for a great holiday/Christmas dessert, you have found it! Blondies have become a favorite of mine after making Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies last month. They are just as good as cookies, but way easier! These actually reminded me a lot of brownies even though the only chocolate in them was the chunks. They are rich, sweet, and have so much depth of flavor.

I decided to go with chopped chocolate this time instead of chocolate chips. I love the imperfect chunks of melty goodness. Of course, chocolate chips can be used instead. The chocolate and gingerbread combination is amazing and highly recommended.

These bars are dense, fudgy, and so moist. Almond butter is used as the base which creates the best chewy texture. I don’t like to use baking soda in my blondies or brownies because I like them so fudgy and don’t want them to rise at all. It ensures that they are not cakey at all.

Just like classic gingerbread cookies, these use Golden Barrel Blackstrap Molasses and warm spices. Ginger, cinnamon, and allspice pair perfectly with the molasses making them taste so amazing!

    Allergic to almonds… any suggestions for replacing the almond butter and almond flour?

      Hi Alison- you can use any nut butter in place of the almond butter. Cashew, sunflower, etc. You can use cassava flour in place of the almond flour. Hope you try them!
