Cherry Blondies | Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free |

I find it tricky sometimes to name recipes like this. Simply put they are Cherry Blondies.

Beyond that they are soooooo much more. They are Paleo…which means they are grain free &  gluten free. There are no refined sugars and they are crazy tasty.

These are whole food blondies & you’ll feel great no matter what time of day you indulge.

Cherries are all the rage ’cause its summer and all. Let’s celebrate them today…

These blondies are sorta a similar concept to the brownies ~ because they are healthy.

But they have almond flour in them.

  1. Holy cats, I’ve been DYING for you to post this recipe. 😉 Now that you have, I’ll have to hit the co-op for some almond flour.

  2. Would never guess how healthy these are! :) But I love it. Cherries, almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil..the ingredients are right up my alley. I’ve never delved into Paleo baking, but it sounds like a fun challenge!

    Definitely need these in my life!

  3. Made these this weekend! I couldn’t find cherries in any of my grocery stores, though, so I used Trader Joe’s frozen Very Cherry Berry blend–they were awesome! Thanks for an awesome recipe. :)

  4. Just stumbled on to this recipe and it’s now early spring. These look so good I can’t wait for cherry season to try them. Has this been tried frozen cherries? I’m wondering if any adjustments need to be made.

  5. Baked one tonight, it took a lot longer than 25 minutes to bake, more like 40! Not sure what I did wrong but the sponge turned out grey in color; I’ve never seen a grey cake before! Maybe you have some tips…

    Still tastes nice though.

  6. I have some very delicious ripe peaches that I need to do something with…do u think that substituting those in for the cherries would be a good Peach Bolndie tasty recipe? Or another yummy idea besides crisps & cobblers? Thanks:)
