Coconut Pecan Paleo Blondies
April 8, 2014 Desserts
This recipe began as an experiment in which I was trying to create a Blondie that was delicious as well as Paleo Friendly. My middle sister Lolita does not like chocolate and therefore does not like regular brownies. But, she has been living the Paleo Lifestyle for a few months now and is always looking for new recipes that adhere to the paleo guidelines. So, a few weekends ago our older sister Trini came to my house to help me experiment with some various new dessert recipes. When I say “to help me” what I really mean is, “to be one of my official taste testers”. Trini is one of the best taste testers around because she is not afraid to tell me what is good and what needs work. Constructive criticism is always welcomed in my house.
The original blondie recipe came out really great and both of my sisters loved them. But, I wanted to experiment further with the base recipe for the original blondies to see what else I could create. Well, the experiments paid off because today I came up with this beautifully delicious recipe, Coconut Pecan Paleo Friendly Blondies. I had initially set out to make a simple blondie, but while I was mixing the dry ingredients I had an epiphany, I thought back to my Paleo Pecan Squares that I had made and realized that coconut and pecan together would taste incredible !!!! So, I just gave it a shot and these beauties are the result of that experiment.
These Blondies are indeed as good as they look and coming up with Paleo friendly desserts can be a daunting task. Anyone who has any experience in baking knows that regular baking alone can be tricky but when you start trying to mix paleo friendly ingredients together, baking becomes even more tricky. I am sure it would even be difficult for David Blaine to pull off a successful Paleo friendly baked cookie, brownie or blondie without a few failed attempts. Don’t worry though because I do believe that this recipe is pretty much error proof and I promise, it will be Worth Every Chew !!Coconut Pecan Paleo BlondiesPrep timeCook timeTotal timeAuthor: Chef Lisi ParsonsServes: variesIngredients
