These are without a doubt one of my favourite ever sweet treats! These deliciously sweet and indulgent Almond Butter Caramel Blondies have the most incredibly soft, light, melt in- your-mouth texture and the dreamiest sweet, sticky, caramel taste. These blondies may be rich and sweet but they’re also gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free! They’re made using all natural Grape Tree products, including the Grape Tree Almond Butter which is purely 100% almonds.
200g ground almonds
100g buckwheat flour
100g almond butter
4 tbsp coconut sugar
100ml maple syrup + 3 tbsp for topping

1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
Pinch of salt

2. Add the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and pinch of salt to a mixing bowl.
3. Add the almond butter, coconut sugar, 100ml maple syrup and coconut oil to food processor and cream together.
4. Add this wet mixture to the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and mix really really.
