Butter Pecan Keto Blondies Recipe

Chocolate chip blondies are one of my all-time favorite desserts. Gooey blondies loaded with chocolate chips and perfect with a cup of coffee… I thought I tried them all. I experimented with cranberry blondies and pumpkin blondies.

That is until I made these pecan blondies with chocolate chips.

Now, these pecan chocolate chip blondies are not like your usual blondies. Firstly, they are grain-free and sugar-free, making them perfect for a keto, low carb, and sugar-free diet…but that’s not all. These blondies are also eggless and grain-free, making them perfect for a paleo, vegan AND gluten-free diet…but you’d never be able to tell!

How to make keto pecan chocolate chip blondies

These gooey pecan blondies are so quick and easy to make. Be sure that your batter is smooth when placing it in the oven, otherwise you’ll be left with dried out blondies!

The Ingredients

  • Almond Flour. A grain-free and low carb flour that has a similar texture to wheat flour, minus the carbs and grains! Either blanched or traditional almond flour will work. 
  • Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener. A keto sugar substitute, golden monk fruit sweetener has the taste and texture of brown sugar. 
  • Baking Soda. Baking necessities, baking soda helps the blondies rise VS spread. 
  • Baking Powder. Aids the baking soda to ensure the blondies are leavened and rise well. 
  • Almond Butter. Smooth and creamy almond butter is a must- If you use crunchy or raw almond butter, you’ll find it difficult to combine the batter. 
  • Coconut Oil. A butter substitute for these blondies, without an overpowering flavor. You won’t taste any coconut flavor at all. 
  • Keto Maple Syrup. Keto and sugar free syrup substitute. This provides sweetness, along with the gooey texture. 
  • Vanilla Extract. Brings out a subtle vanilla flavor, and natural sweetness. 
  • Coconut Milk. Any milk works, but I prefer coconut milk. This helps keep the blondies moist and gooey. 
  • Chocolate Chips. No words needed. 
  • Pecans. Raw, unsalted pecans to really bring out the flavor. 

The Instructions 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 9 x 4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and mix well and set aside.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl or in a small saucepan, combine your coconut oil and almond butter and mix well, until combined. 
  4. Combine your dry mixture with your melted coconut oil and almond butter. Add your coconut milk and vanilla extract and mix well. If the batter is too crumbly, add more milk of choice, one tablespoon at a time. Fold through your chocolate chips and pecans.
  5. Transfer your batter into the lined pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until slightly golden brown on top.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pan, before slicing int0 bars. 

Pecan Blondies

Why are my pecan blondies dry? 

Different brands of almond flour yield different textures. As such, you will need to adjust the amount of coconut milk (or milk of choice) used. Start with 2 tablespoons. If the batter is too crumbly, gradually add more, one tablespoon at a time. 

While you don’t want your blondie batter to be runny, you DO want it to be thick and smooth. 

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener. You can substitute golden monk fruit with another granulated sweetener, like Swerve. If you don’t have any dietary issues, you can use coconut palm sugar or brown sugar. 
  • Almond Butter. Any runny/smooth nut or seed butter will work. Peanut butter, cashew butterand tahini are great. 
  • Keto Maple Syrup. This is the only keto-friendly sweetener I have used. Traditional maple syrup and agave nectar will work. 

How long do pecan blondies last?

Pecan chocolate chip blondies will keep for at least a week when refrigerated in a sealed container. While the blondies can also be stored at room temperature, that is only best if you intend to enjoy them within 2-3 days. 

Can you freeze pecan blondies? 

Pecan blondies are freezer friendly and can be stored in the freezer. Wrap blondies individually in parchment paper and place them in a ziplock bag. Frozen pecan blondies will keep fresh for at least 6 months.

Thaw frozen blondies at room temperature or in the fridge overnight.
