Chewy Almond Chocolate Chip Blondies

It is with great sadness that I bring to you the last recipe before June. Do keep reading, because this is a GREAT one! Or so I had hoped. I had begun drafting this recipe before I left for my last term of second year of university, but never got around to finishing it (major oops on my part!). Well anyways, that means good luck for you!

Also, exams are done, and the sun is shining, so it's officially SUMMER! Let's get back to the food now, shall we?

These gooey, fudgy, chocolate-y blondies taste nothing but decadent, AND they're good for you and that summer bikini bod, so there's no need to worry! These blondies are actually a spin off Momofuku's Perfect 10 Kookies, but healthier, chewier and in bar form!

I think the picture above did all the talking, but trust me when I say these were fab-u-lous! I mean look at those almond shards and did you see that melty chocolate? I know you did - just trying to rub it in here.

You'll definitely want to have a napkin or two on hand when eating these, as they are quite crumbly and you may need one to dab off the smears of chocolate surrounding your lips one you've scarfed these down!

But the messiness is worth it. What are you waiting for?

1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1 1/2 cup oats
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 170 C and line a brownie tray with baking paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (not the chocolate chips yet).

Add in the wet ingredients and mix with a large spoon until just combined.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Press the mixture into the prepared tray and place in the oven for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown on top.

While still warm from the oven, make cuts so that it is easier to break into bars once the blondies have fully set.

Try to let them cool for a bit (yes I know, it's hard to resist!) and enjoy!
