Sugar Free Pumpkin Blondies | Gluten-Free

I adapted this recipe from Not Enough Cinnamon’s Paleo Pumpkin Spice Blondies.

My blood sugar levels don’t do to well when I have sugary things, it starts swinging all over the place. So I needed a sugar free version, with a few modifications I came up with the Sugar Free Paleo Pumpkin Blondies.

Instead of using coconut sugar and maple syrup-like the original recipe, I substituted monk fruit and maple extract. To make up for less liquid since there was no maple syrup I used an entire can of pumpkin instead of 1 cup. I also upped the pumpkin spice a tad and lowered the cinnamon a bit.

I also kept mine in the refrigerator, where these really held up their form when cooled (plus I just like chilled desserts 🙂 )

For the baking dish, I just used my Pyrex 11 Cup Rectangular Baking Dish

Sugar Free Pumpkin Blondies Ingredient Substitution Options:

Monkfruit Sweetener: If you prefer another sweetener such as stevia you can use that. You want to use something that has a 1:1 substitute ratio for sugar.

Coconut Flour: I have not tried another alternative to coconut flour in this recipe.

Tapioca Flour: Arrowroot flour can be substituted for Tapioca Flour.

Yield: 9

  2. In the same mixing bowl add in the remaining wet ingredients and mix until all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
  3. Grease your baking dish with Coconut Oil or line it with parchment paper, then pour/spatula in the batter and smooth out the top to make it even.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until it is browned.
  5. The blondies will set as they cool, let them cook for about 30 minutes before severing.

Notes

A glass baking dish works best for this recipe.

If you don't like to use oil to grease the baking dish you can use parchment paper to line the dish instead.
