Funfetti Gluten Free Blondie Bar Recipe

Lexi’s Clean Kitchen just turned SIX. Where has the time gone? Six years of recipes, cleaner living, healing journeys together, and so much more. Remember when I quit my teaching job? Or when I shared this epic birthday cake to celebrate 5 years? To say I’m grateful for our amazing community is an understatement. So let’s celebrate! These Funfetti Blondies are the perfect treat to celebrate any occasion, but especially LCK’s 6th birthday! They’re pretty easy to make and are SO, SO, SO GOOD!

Here’s what you need to make them:

  • Butter or coconut oil
  • Almond butter
  • Maple sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond flour
  • Coconut flour 
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Sprinkles (see below for the brands we recommend)

A note about sprinkles

We stay away from artificially dyed sprinkles at all cost. Lucky for us there are so many good brands out there for naturally dyed sprinkles derived from fruits, vegetables and herbs. And for a true funfetti look try to avoid sanding sugars or nonpereils, the best kind of sprinkles here are the classics.

Here is a list of some of the ones we’ve tried and liked:

  • India Tree
  • ColorKitchen Foods
  • Let’s Do Organic: This one will add some color to the blondies but are similar to nonpareils. We’ve added this to the list because this brand can be purchased at a few natural grocery stores and Whole Foods and might be easier to find, though these would be our last choice.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare an 8" baking dish by greasing it and lining it with a parchment paper sling.
  2. Add the butter and the almond butter to a small pan. Melt together over low heat and whisk to combine, and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. To a large bowl add maple sugar, egg, vanilla extract. Whisk until combined. Slowly pour in melted butter, a little bit at a time while whisking until it is all combined.
  4. Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt and combine until it comes all together.
  5. Fold in the sprinkles and place better into the prepared pan. The batter will be thick. Using an spatula press the batter down evenly into the pan and smooth over the top. Add more sprinkles to the top of the batter.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the blondies have puffed up throughout.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Remove the blondies from the pan and let cool on a rack.
  8. Cut into 9 portions and enjoy.
  9. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Recipe Notes

  1. You can substitute coconut sugar if you cannot get maple sugar but it will change the color of the blondies and make them darker.

    These look great! I’ve been searching for a good blonde recipe and can’t wait to try these. Could you sub Geehee for butter? Thanks for all you do!

    Would coconut sugar work in place of maple sugar?

  3. KAITLIN says:

    Hi! First thank you for what you do! It has been life changing for me since I started following you. Second I live in Germany and I am not sure I will be able to find maple sugar. Is it possible to substitute this? Other wise I think I will need to order it off amazon. Thank you!

    These are so delicious and easy!

    Lexi, these look amazing! And congratulations on 6 years! Do you think a flax egg would work well in this recipe to make these vegan?

    Hey Lexi ~ the link for the ColorKitchen Foods sprinkles isn’t working? The other two are! Thanks ~ these look incredible!

  8. Amy Fabriziani says:

    These were the perfect little treat! Enough sweet, but not too crazy!! We couldn’t find maple sugar so we used coconut sugar and I added a little bit of pure maple syrup. It seemed to work 🙂 Can’t wait to make some more!

    These are so good! I love recipes that I already have all of the ingredients in my pantry! To make them vegan, I used applesauce instead of the egg and they still turned out great!

    I’m new to gluten-free baking and am making these for a celiac friend. Can the 2 tbsp coconut flour be subbed for more almond flour?

  13. Kristin says:

    Turned out so cute and delicious! I used monk fruit instead of maple sugar since its what I had on had, so they were even lower carb and the only sugar coming from the sprinkles 😉

    My husband REQUESTS these, and he isn’t even a dessert person. Also, my dad can’t eat chocolate desserts, so these were a perfect treat to take over to him. These are so good. AND YAY SPRINKLES! Sprinkles just make everyone happy. 🙂

    These were phenomenal! I didn’t have sprinkles on hand so I used mini chocolate chips. So delicious!

  21. Christina F says:

    I have trusted Lexi with all of my gluten/dairy free needs and she’s done it again. This is my fourth baking recipe I’ve used from her and this one was DELISH. I actually couldn’t find regular almond butter at the store but there was a hazelnut almond butter spread. Used that and it gave a nice Nutella type taste! So tasty and the sprinkles were a nice texture touch!

    Can you substitute ghee for butter or would it be better to use coconut oil?
