Snickerdoodle Blondies Recipe

Disclosure: I received a free sample in exchange for my honest review.

We have had a thing for Snickerdoodle blondies around the house here lately. But of course, I am trying to watch my sugar intake.. so this makes for a bit of a problem.

A lot of times if I can get enough protein in a carby food I don’t have as much of a blood sugar spike. Many times I add nuts to help.. but the man of the house doesn’t like nuts mixed in food.

Along comes a review for Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour. Hooray for this! They sent us a 2 pound bag AND a 5 pound bag. I can tell you- we are putting those bags through the works!

What is almond flour all about?

Made from 100% all-natural Gluten-Free blanched almonds
Substitute for wheat flour in cakes, breads, cookies, muffins and more
Great source of dietary fiber, Vitamin E, protein, iron, magnesium & calcium
Very finely-ground it Gives baked goods and sweets a rich flavor and moist texture
Certified Kosher And Gluten Free with No additives or preservative
Considered pasteurized by the USDA and The Almond Board of California

So what was our experience with Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour

We love it. I have added it to ice cream, and I love the texture and flavor that it adds to such a simple snack. In the morning I have been eating the almond flour with yogurt and granola.

I was grinding up pecans for a few days, but I have some teeth issues and it was really starting to get a bit much for me. Almond flour adds the protein without the crunch of whole or ground nuts.
I of course modified the snickerdoodle blondie recipe below- so check that out-

I didn’t even get a peep out of the family with the substitution I made. I think next time I will try to sub just a bit more and see how it goes!

The recipe I used came from Doing Splendid.

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Ingredients:
1 cup softened, unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla (I doubled this from 1 tsp)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon (I increased from 1.5 tsp)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup almond flour (I think this can easily be increased)
Topping (I eliminated this topping to save carbs)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9 x 13 pan.
Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
Add the eggs and vanilla.
Add the salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and flour and mix until well combined.
Add to 9×13 pan.
Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar topping.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.

There was going to be an awesome picture, but the family devoured these puppies! Even the toddler got in on the excitement.
Overall, I find the Morning Pep Blanched Almond Flour a great way to add protein and cut carbs from our diet.

Thanks so much for letting us review this awesome product!
