Firstly, before we get into today’s post, thank you SO much for all your emails, messages, texts etc regarding Friday’s blogging related post– I promise a follow up is coming which will address many of your questions! 🙂

“Every boy or girl needs to partake in at least ONE sport.”

…Said my mother.

I was never a sporty kid. Long term readers know that as a kid, I would much rather watch paint dry than play sports. Heck, I probably would have even eaten a chocolate cake with kale blended through it. There was, however, one sport I begrudgingly did.

Swimming.

From the ages of 7 until 12, every Thursday would see Niki and I at our local swimming pool. Our one-hour class would have us doing freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke and eventually, the butterfly stroke. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I was a pretty fast swimmer. I would easily be able to do laps of the pool without rest, and could spend hours without leaving the waters.

However, swimming left me with a certain fear…one which I have to this day.

Diving.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh diving. 

I still remember the day we had to learn how to dive into the pool using proper technique. I watched my teacher show us how it’s done, and then my class mates diving in one at a time after. When my turn came, I tried to emulate my teacher…

…Only to flop.

BELLY FLOP.

Each year, my high school would have their annual swimming sports carnival. That would mean I experienced six swimming carnivals. It also meant I did NOT partake in six swimming carnivals. The reason for that was because I was deathly afraid of diving, or even worse, belly flopping in front of the entire school.

To this very day, I have NOT dived into a pool directly, nor have any intentions of doing so. I’ll slide in like a mer-man and get on with my day! 

Luckily, my negative diving experience hasn’t tainted all things water-related. Swimming continues to be something I do enjoy doing, and something I’m excited to discuss today! I’ve teamed up with Blue Diamond, who are sponsoring the US Swimming Team and helping fuel these athletes! I not only love snacking on Blue Diamond almonds, but they are used every single day in another form…Almond Butter! It seriously doesn’t get any easier than this- I literally blend a container of whichever flavor of almonds I have on hand (for today’s recipe, I used their slightly salted almonds) and voila- Instant (and cheaper!) almond butter.

As part of their #LaneToGreatness campaign (PS- Check out the GIVEAWAY below!), I’d love to share a recipe to promote a healthy lifestyle. Long term readers know that I advocate that healthy food does NOT need to be boring, bland or a chore to do. I also advocate dessert for breakfast. A while back, I shared these healthy no bake breakfast brownies. It was time for their better non-chocolate counterparts to make an appearance- In blondie form!

These healthy no bake vanilla breakfast blondies are a taste and texture lover’s dream meal- Slightly chewy, soft and deceivingly filling! They are the perfectly balanced breakfast (or snack or even dessert) to fuel you up and keep you satisfied for hours! Unlike traditional blondies, they aren’t baked (really?!), and also don’t contain any butter, grains, flour or sugar, yet taste delicious! Based on what combination of ingredients you use, they are naturally gluten free, vegan, dairy free, grain free and paleo friendly!

HACK! For those wanting an added boost of protein, you can either add the protein powder IN the recipe (I use my standby casein protein powder, vegan protein powder or paleo friendly protein powder) or as a frosting- You can use the same frosting used in this recipe here. The frosting pictured here is using a simple two ingredient coconut cream and honey recipe for vanilla creme, found here.

For the blondies
  1. 1 1/2 cups oat flour (gluten free, if needed)*
  2. 1/4 cup coconut flour
  3. pinch cinnamon
  4. 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (See above recipe card for my recommendations)- Optional
  5. Granulated sweetener of choice**
  6. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  7. 1/2 cup almond butter (I used Blue Diamond slightly salted almonds, blended)
  8. 1/2 cup brown rice syrup (sub for honey or maple syrup for paleo option)
  9. 1 T + milk of choice***
For the frosting
  1. Protein frosting (link above recipe card)
  2. Vanilla Creme (link above recipe card)
Instructions
  1. Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper or aluminium foil and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine your flours, protein powder, cinnamon and granulated sweetener and set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your almond butter with the brown rice syrup (or maple/honey). Whisk in the vanilla extract and pour into the dry mixture. Mix very well until fully incorporated.
  4. For a more soft and fudgy blondie, add milk of choice until a relatively thick batter is formed. For a firm and chewy blondie, add milk of choice only if needed to desired thickness. Transfer to lined baking tray and press firmly in place.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, or until firm. Once firm, add frosting of choice and refrigerate for another 30 minutes to firm up before slicing.
Notes
  1. * Sub for almond flour for paleo option. Alternatively, you can use one cup TOTAL of coconut flour (omit the 1/4 cup coconut flour).
  2. ** If protein powder is sweetened, you can omit OR if you don't use protein powder, adjust accordingly.
  3. *** Depending on the blend of flours you use, you may need less or more. Adjust accordingly.
  4. Blondies are best kept in the refrigerator, but are freezer friendly too.

  1. k, I did the survey. Gimme the $$$! 😉

    So, swimming….not really my thing. Which is hard because I LOVE the water, I’m just a very bad swimmer. Diving is definitely not my thing either because I hate getting water in my eyes or nose. Which is I why I rarely get my head under water unless I’m snorkeling. How ’bout you and I just go for a nice boat ride instead?

  2. I remember practicing diving and I was kind of chunky so my belly always hit first hahahaha
    I still think of swimming as Marco Polo and floating in tubes. I’ve never done a swim workout so I associate swimming with fun. I love Blue Diamond almonds, thanks for the giveaway

  3. I tool swimming lessons as a kid but could never pass on to the next level because I refused to put my head underwater lol. And don’t get me started about diving, I am deathly afraid as well even though I can flip on a 4 inch balance beam.

    Like all of your recipes, I need these and I need them NOW!

  4. The fudginess of these blondies, OMG!!! I’m loving all these no bake recipes. They’re perfect for the summer when I couldn’t be bothered to cook because it’ so darn hot! I’m always so impressed by the people I know who swim. They’re really high level swimmers, but the dedication they have to go to a 4 A.M. practices and an evening practice in the same day, I mean WOW.

    xxMeah

  5. Grew up tiny coal mine town with spectacular park & pool.learn to swim and dive age 5 .lifeguard by 7 th grade. Can side stroke for hrs.diving from above 7 ft has me paralyzed…no #$$$$$ can help!!..step off vert maybe.still swim. Love the silky water. Sports?? Some hurdles, most ?non ?? athletic cheerleader with fab dance moves. Big baby at field hockey:-)……no bake from now on…. I-95 corrider will suck til aug end…thanks giveaway.MSM

  6. Your recipes always make me curious! Love to try new recipes that are healthy and yummy to make my kiddos. I completed the survey!

  7. Filled out the survey!
    I love diving, but I’m not a great swimmer.
    As a child I played tennis and did gymnastics!

  8. Awesome! I love blondies. And I love swimming. They kinda go hand-in-hand, right? And I’m with you. I never did like the proper diving thing. I much prefer a huge cannonball…made while screaming at the top of my lungs. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway, too, mate!

  9. Oh my gosh—I’m the same way about swimming. As a kid I was okay in the pool, but the older I get, the more I hate it. Maybe it’s having contact lenses that love to get lost and all stinging from chlorine? And don’t even get me started on the ocean. F-ing terrifying! I love being on or near the beach, but I’m happy to stay on the shore, thanks.

  10. I completed the survey. These blondies look delicious! Might have to make them for dessert though. 🙂

  11. I filled out the survey. No! I cannot dive very well into the water. My kids can, but not me! I loved playing softball as a kid and being on the track team. =)

  12. HEY, who can’t bake right now because it is over 100 degrees, who has all of these ingredients, who LOVES everything about these, WHO IS ABOUT TO MAKE THESE!? hi me!!!

  13. Survey done!! I used to love swimming too but have fallen out of the habit…must get back into it…after making these, of course!!

  14. Wait, no-bake?! These look SO delicious, and totally baked! Ha. Can we review my first diving experience during a swim lesson? *Walks slowly to edge of diving board like a character in Peter Pan walking the plank* *Looks down, wants to turn around but can’t* *Tries to leave diving board by making it bounce as little as possible*

  15. Done the survey!!
    Also I love all your vegan-friendly recipes, they keep me inspired 🙂 please keep the good work and the beautiful photos!!

  16. I completed the survey!

    I wish my schools growing up offered swimming, but they were very small schools and didn’t have pools (and no pools in town, either). I did take many years of swimming lessons and got to the stage right before lifeguard training. Now all I want to do is find a pool and swim all day! 🙂

  17. Is there any way to get some carb counts on any of these? Especially the breakfast blondie! I’m diabetic and all carbs must be accounted for.
    Thanks!
    Rebecca

  18. Hi Arman,

    I absolutely love this our Vanilla Breakfast Blondies recipe here.
    I would also love to feature it in our website Greenthickies. Would it be all right if I used one image for it? I will not be posting the actual recipe but only one image, title, a small quote and then link directly back here.
    Would that be okay?

    Thanks a Lot:)
