We’re officially living in our new house and mostly unpacked! After a long day yesterday, I was questioning my decision to spend my money on custom cabinets rather than professional movers! 😉 I’m sure my family was too…haha. But we got everything – including the piano!- moved in without any scratches. Most of my kitchen stuff will remain in boxes until after my new cabinets arrive, but we’ve got pretty much everything else unpacked. It feels good =). As I was downloading some pictures off my memory card a couple days ago, I found some pictures of these blondies and remembered that I never posted the recipe. I spotted this recipe in an Eating Well magazine. It caught my eye immediately for two reasons: a) I LOVE brownies (or blondies) and b) it had quinoa flour. Remember, I’m obsessed with quinoa flour ;)…haha. I hope you’ll give these blondies a try. They’re delicious! Enjoy!

Almond Butter-Quinoa Blondies
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth or crunchy natural almond butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup quinoa flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray.
2. Beat butter and almond butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Whisk quinoa flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs on it, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool in the pan before cutting.
