Pecan Pie Blondies

Gooey, sweet, crunchy pecan pie blondies - sounds perfect right about now, doesn't it? As I got all of my ingredients out on the counter in preparation for making this delicious recipe, I had to practice self control since I wanted to eat the entire bag of dates....and pecans. Those two foods together are so yummy! I wanted to create a lower calorie blondie mimicking the calorie-laden southern pecan pie. Success. So now I can eat as many pecans and dates as I want! 


½ cup medjool dates
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2 scoops ARO vanilla whey protein powder
3 eggs
½ cup pecans


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line an 8x8” baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Soak medjool dates in a bowl of water for 30 minutes. Drain water, remove pits, and add dates to a food processor along with the milk and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.

3. To the food processor, add the coconut sugar, honey, coconut oil, and protein powder. Blend until smooth then pour into a mixing bowl.

4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk eggs. Pour eggs into blondie batter and stir until combined.

5. Pour batter into prepared dish and top with pecans.

6. Bake in the oven for 32-36 minutes. Let cool, slice into 16 squares, and enjoy!
