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
- Vanilla extract
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Baking powder
- 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.

- Preheat the oven to 350ºF and prepare an 8" baking dish by greasing it and lining it with a parchment paper sling.
- 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.
- 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.
- Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt and combine until it comes all together.
- 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.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the blondies have puffed up throughout.
- Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Remove the blondies from the pan and let cool on a rack.
- Cut into 9 portions and enjoy.
- Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
- You can substitute coconut sugar if you cannot get maple sugar but it will change the color of the blondies and make them darker.
