Bursting with lemon flavor, these blondies are a cross between a brownie and a cake. They are also naturally gluten free, grain free, and dairy free.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 150 grams sugar (¾ cup)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (1 small lemon)
  • 168 grams almond flour (1¾ cups)
  • 20 grams potato starch (2 Tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt (or table salt)
  • 60 grams almond butter (¼ cup)
  • 39 grams olive oil (3 Tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 85 grams blueberries, frozen or fresh (¾ cup)

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. Alternatively, grease the pan.
  • In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, press the lemon zest into the sugar with your fingertips. Add eggs and the egg white and whisk 5-10 minutes at high speed. The mixture will be pale yellow and somewhat thick. (Alternatively, you can whisk by hand, which is a workout but doable.)
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the almond flour, potato starch and salt. (If either the almond flour or the potato starch are clumpy, sift them into the bowl before whisking together.)
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the almond butter, olive oil, vanilla, and lemon juice until smooth. With the electric mixer, whisk this mixture into the egg/sugar mixture until fully incorporated. You may have to stop the mixer to wipe down the sides with a rubber spatula.
  • Add the dry ingredients, mixing just until fully incorporated.
  • Fold in blueberries and spread into prepared pan.
  • Bake 40-45 minutes. The edges should be golden brown, the top should be lightly browned, and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
