The PERFECT Paleo Chocolate Chunk Blondies

I don't think I'm being bold when I call these the PERFECT Paleo Blondies. The perfect marriage between a thick chocolate chunk cookie and a moist brownie. They are dense without being too fudgy and just sweet enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. These are super easy to make and a treat that you can feel real good about eating. Paleo, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, low sugar, soy free, naturally sweetened.
