Also known as blondie brownies, these dessert bars are known for their heartwarming vanilla flavor, but we’re adding some shaved dark chocolate to make them extra special. Learn how to make keto blondies and enjoy these fantastic bars guilt-free. Fast, healthy and easy, you’ll surely fall for these!
What Goes into Keto Blondies?
Since these are low-carb blondies, we’re not using all-purpose flour but almond flour. Make sure you use finely ground almonds and not coarser almond meal.
You’ll also need an egg and an egg yolk; that’s the perfect amount of egg. Coconut oil gives the blondies moisture, and baking soda will help these beauties rise in the oven.
Vanilla extract and shaved dark chocolate give the blondies their personality. But what’s truly exceptional is these treat’s moist and crumbly texture.
From an 9-inch square baking pan, you’ll get at least nine blondies, but you’ll wish you made more; these are gone in minutes! Especially if you have some friends over to try them.
When to Make Keto Blondies?
Did you know blondies, AKA blond brownies, predate regular brownies? People already made fudgy, butterscotch-flavored bars in the 19-century, years before chocolate brownies became mainstream.
And this matters because there’s history in these treats, making them fantastic conversation starters. Make a batch whenever you have guests coming over for dinner; these are lovely with a cup of tea and are fun desserts as well! Blondies are pretty versatile, and they always cause a great impression, so if you want to look your best and show off your baking skills, these are for you.
What to Serve with Keto Blondies?
Blondies are delicious on their own. Just grab one and dig in, especially when they’re still warm!
Having said that, these bars shine when served with a creamy drink, whether it’s a cup of cream tea or a latte. Even a tall glass of milk does wonders. These treats are ready in under half an hour, so you’ll have plenty of time to make a round of cappuccinos for you and your guests.
Most importantly, make these whenever you’re craving something sweet and fear you’ll break your diet. Or when you’re having someone who’s taking care of themselves for dinner.

Sweet bakes as tasty and healthy as these are uncommon. I know. So, I’m particularly proud of these beauties. I invite you to try them out and let me know what you think. You’ll find them to be a reliable, fast and easy bake for all occasions.
I’ll tell you what, try making these and share a picture of your blondies with the keto community. I’m sure we can make these treats as popular as brownies again! Blondies are always more fun, right?
