Chocolate chip coconut blondie bites
After a busy week, it's nice to end it on a sweet note. I love baking. It's one of my favorite pastimes and since studying nutrition, I have become obsessed with creating recipes that use wholesome, nutrient-dense ingredients. Yes, it is possible to indulge in sweet treats that nourish your body and make you feel good!
To me, this means using ingredients that boast nutrients and that won't spike your blood sugar. Refined sugars and flours are devoid of fiber and any real nutrition. This may explain why it is so easy to eat more than one sugar cookie at a time! I talk a lot about baking with coconut flour here on the blog. Though it is a tricky flour to work with (a large liquid to flour ratio), I always love it because it adds natural sweetness to my recipes and boasts a lot of fiber- great for digestion and signaling satiation.
These blondie bites would be great to make over the weekend! They are made with a handful of ingredients that you may already have stocked in your fridge and pantry. Tag me in your recipe creations on insta!
Coconut Flour: This high fiber flour adds natural sweetness to any recipe. Its high fiber and protein content are what make this flour unique from its counterparts.
Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is a great sweetener alternative to refined sugar. It boasts nutrients like calcium, iron, zinc and manganese.
