Grain Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

Very tasty grab and go bar that stores well in the freezer. Great for lunchboxes, trail rides, or mid afternoon snack attacks.

Grain Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Blondie  Bars
1 cup almond flour
¼  cup coconut flour
¼ cup chickpea flour
¼ cup hemp protein powder or hemp flour
3 Tbsp ground Chia flax mix
1/3  cup honey
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 eggs
1/3 cup sunflower seed butter (or nut butter of choice)
1 cup plain kefir or yogurt
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
ADD INS: (optional but YUMMY!)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
***See alternate add ins below

Preheat oven to 375F

Place all ingredients except the add ins in a large mixing bowl and mix well with a immersion blender, scraping sides of the bowl as necessary.
Let batter stand for 5 minutes to thicken up, and then stir in the coconut and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
Scrape into well greased 9x13 pan and smooth out with a wooden spoon or spatula.
Bake in preheated oven for 33-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
Let cool in pan and cut into desired shape. We cut ours in to 16 long “bars”, dividing the pan in half  first lengthwise down the middle, and then cutting into 8 even sections width wise. Wrap individually as desired and store in fridge for a couple of days or in the freezer for longer storage.

***These are also great with 1 cup chopped dates, 1 cup shredded coconut and the zest of an organic orange in place of the other add ins :)
