Charlotte's Legal Blondies

My daughter Charlotte invented this recipe.  Very healthy and sooooo yummy!  Tastes like butterscotch.  She cooked it in our solar oven so the temperature is low and the time long.  I think it kept all the ingredients intact and flavorful. 

1 banana
2 cups dates
½ cup coconut oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

1 ¼ cups almond flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup chopped pecans

Put banana, dates and coconut oil in blender and process until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla and process again.  In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients.  Add blender contents and mix well.  Mix in pecans.

Spoon into greased brownie pan.  Bake at 250F for 1 hour.  

Variation: if you want to make Brownies add 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.  I love brownies, but amazingly, the blondies were even better!


  1. Do you think this would work in a slow cooker?

  2. I've never tried baking in a slow cooker, but it seems like it could work. The lid might condense the steam and drip on the cake, though. Maybe with a couple of kitchen towels instead of the crockpot lid. By the way, I think it's easier to put the eggs and vanilla in the blender with the banana, dates and coconut oil.

  3. 3 Researches PROVE Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally get rid of fat by consuming coconut fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
