Remaking these blondies was the best thing I ever did! It’s been so long that I had actually forgotten what they tasted like and how yummy they were. These were light, healthy, chewy and only 77 calories per piece. You could actually eat the whole thing if you’re not careful.
If you want to make this recipe vegan, swap the egg with 2 tbsps. of unsweetened applesauce. You can also substitute the almond flour for 1 cup of brown rice flour if you would prefer a more moist texture. Enjoy!
