I hope you enjoy it 🙂 …And if any of you are familiar with making recipe videos and have pointers for me please let me know in the comment section below, I need all the help I can get!!!

Some Helpful Hints:

-I tried using cashew butter and they came out a bit crumbly because the cashew butter is much thicker than Sunbutter. Sunbutter is fairly thin so if you replace it with another nut butter that’s thicker I can’t guarantee the results.  If you do use another nut butter and the batter seems thick you could try adding a Tbsp. or so of water but I have not tried it. The batter should have the consistency of a thick cookie dough.

-Please do not adjust the amount of honey or coconut sugar, it will drastically change the texture.

Enjoy!!!

*Sometimes baking soda can have a reaction with Sunbutter and turn green. If this happens there's no need to panic and your blondies are perfectly safe to eat 🙂 **If you are impatient for your blondies to cool off you can place them in the fridge for around 15 minutes, or until cooled and texture is set.

    • Hi amy, I’m sorry but I don’t think it will work without the chia seeds:( Since I didn’t use an egg they are what hold the blondies together. Sorry about that!!!

    • I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure, but if you omit the chia seeds and use an egg I would recommend replacing the maple syrup or honey with additional coconut palm sugar so there’s not too much liquid in the recipe. Let me know how you like it!
