In the spirit of Memorial Day Weekend I created this berry packed blondie! It’s a light and moist blondie (that’s paleo friendly) and bursting with fresh berry flavor! It’s easy to make and SO good you’ll have the pickiest of eaters fooled that this is gluten/grain/dairy free AND has no refined sugars. I will definitely be making this all summer long because it’s just that good. Although I have yet to try it, I suspect that this would be amazing with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can easily replace the fresh berries with frozen, just follow the notes in the recipe.

Paleo Berry Blondie
(aka Red, White, and Bluebs Blondies)
paleo (gluten/grain free), dairy free, no refined sugar
I made this recipe in the spirit of Memorial Day but it's SO easy and delicious I will definitely be making this a dessert staple over the summer when fresh berries abound. It's a light but moist blondie bursting with berry flavor. This can easily be made with frozen berries, as well, if you're feeling like some berry action out of season.
- 1/2 cup blueberries well rinsed & dried
- 1/2 cup raspberries well rinsed & dried
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and cooled
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup collagen
- 2 tbsp + 1 tsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 360 (no, that is not a typo) and prepare 8x8 inch baking dish by lining with parchment paper
- Place the berries in a small bowl with the coconut sugar and set aside
In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a medium bowl if mixing by hand, beat together all the wet ingredients until it's well combined
- Add in the dry ingredients and mix again until everything is just well incorporated
With your hands, or a tablespoon, place small chunks of the batter in the baking dish and add the berries in between the batter chunks pieces
Once all the batter and berries are in the baking dish, take a rubber spatula and press everything into the dish so that everything is evenly distributed in the dish
Bake for 30-33 minutes or until top is golden brown almost all over
Let cool in baking dish for about 10 minutes then lift the blondie out using the parchment paper sides. Let cool a bit more on wire rack to allow for good slicing.
You can make this with frozen berries as well, just make sure to bake for at least another 5 minutes. No other alterations need to be made.
Although I have not tried this, I suspect this would be amazing with a healthy scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream.
Any uneaten pieces can be kept in the fridge for a few days.
