Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blondies

The other day I wanted to bake. I asked Paige if she wanted to bake with me, and of course, she did.  I struggle baking with her because I want to like the raw-egg filled bowl, but I don’t want her to (quite a dilemma).  But anyway, although I didn’t allow her to lick the bowl and spoons, she loved the finished product!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blondies


  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup smooth or crunchy natural peanut butter (or any nut-free alternative butter)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch-square baking pan with nonstick spray (going up about 1 inch on the sides). Beat butter and peanut butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs, brown sugar and vanilla.
  2. Whisk oat flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs on it, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 45 minutes.
  4. Cut into 20 squares. Let cool completely before storing.


This is a low FODMAP and Gluten Free recipe!

And chow down she did.  I think she ate three in one day. Oh well, they are healthy right?  Ok…healthier. Unlike the Trolls cupcakes I will be making for her birthday this weekend!  Yeah, my baby is turning three.  More on that in a blog post coming up…
