Keto means low carb, but not zero carb! It also doesn’t mean days on end of butter and bacon. Nope! If done right, you should be eating lots of keto-friendly vegetables, moderate protein from high-quality animals…and the occasional treat, if you desire. That’s why at the 131 Method we make hundreds of yummy recipes to help you through different phases of your diet. These keto chocolate chip blondies work well in our Ignite phase (click here to learn more). Though, we give an option so that you can enjoy them during the Nourish phase, or really, any time you like!
Keto Chocolate Chip Blondie Highlights
This dessert is gluten-free and sugar-free and only contains a handful of ingredients. What makes them keto is their fat/carb/protein ratio. The fat comes from butter and almond flour. (Feel free to swap in a vegan butter like Miyokos, if desired). Almonds (and almond flour) contain a good amount of fiber, potassium and magnesium.
Made in just one bowl, this dessert comes together in under 30 minutes (including bake time). And chances are, you have the ingredients at home already if you follow our 131 Method meal plans or grocery lists.
One ingredient you might not have, or know much about is psyllium husk. Read all about this high fiber food here. But in the meantime, just know that a little addition to your keto baked goods keeps them soft and more elastic.

Comment below when you make this recipe!
What can I use instead of Lakanto sweetener? I don’t use Stevia nor Agave! I prefer either organic pure maple syrup or organic raw honey. How much of either one can I use?
You can always make swaps that work best for you! We are not fans of agave either!
I think honey would taste best. Honey will, of course, make this recipe not a keto treat. You might want to find a paleo blondie recipe that calls for honey. But if you want to try ours (and we are delighted you want to try), start with 1/4 cup of honey and see if that works and has the level of sweetness you desire.
Is the pan size 9 x 6 correct, when a bigger size pan 9 x 9 would bake longer?
this has been fixed. Thank you
