Cherry Blondies

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.


Cherry Blondies | Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free |


Recently I posted grain free ~ nut free brownies & you guys sure seemed to like them a whole lot.

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.

Whereas the flour less brownies did not.

  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. Marla, these are stunning! I always love your photos, they are so gorgeous and so inspiring!

    Love this recipe and love that is all about summer!

  3. 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!

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. 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.

    1. Hi!! Thanks for stopping by. Go ahead & try the frozen cherries ~ I think they will turn out great. Be sure to let us know 🙂

  6. 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.

    1. Glad this tasted nice…the cherry juice might have spread too much into the batter when you mixed it? That’s my only thought….

      1. Can confirm. It took just over 40 minutes to bake. I used fresh, organic cherries and added all the juice to the dough, when I mixed the cherries in. No issues with them turning grey, though.

  7. 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:)
