I pretty much am just the happiest right now¡ªseeing review copies of my cookbook arriving on peoples’ front doors is just a dream too good to be true! I can’t wait for you all to get yours in just a few short days! This cookbook was a labor of love, and each page truly gives you a snapshot at daily life or celebrations gathered around the table. I have been so overwhelmed these past few weeks at the amazing emails and messages I have received in response to me sharing my Type 1 diabetes story. Thank you all for each and every word you have said! So to celebrate, I have a little gift for you all and a scrumptious recipe!
There are a few things that I am super passionate about¡ªone is showing people how fun, simple and tasty a healthy lifestyle can be! So I created a handy, dandy resource for you “The Dinner Party Edition.” Filled with everything from drinks to appetizers, main entrees to desserts plus a complete list of preparations, these recipes will have you and your dinner guests reaching for seconds! There is a complete dinner for each season¡ªspring, summer, fall and winter.
Good news is that if you pre-ordered or pre-order my print cookbook by Oct. 5 at midnight, I will send you a coupon code for the Dinner Party Edition ebook as a thank you for your endless support as I seriously am so grateful for each and everyone of you!
So to celebrate, I give you these gluten-free and Paleo-friendly salted maple blondies to make all your cozy fall dreams come true! These seriously are so buttery and delicious and like all my desserts and sweets, they are not overly sweet so you can eat one and still feel fabulous! And they taste great warmed up with extra butter and a cup of coffee for breakfast, not like I am speaking from experience or anything!
I absolutely love sweet and salty desserts and these blondies are made grain free and gluten free with cashews which have a mellow flavor you won’t notice they are made with nuts, so this recipe is perfect for entertaining!
So be sure you pre-order my print cookbook, All American Paleo Table, and check out the Dinner Party Edition so that you an get all these scrumptious recipes! Oh and then go make these blondies now, because I promise you will love them!
These little blondies will have you reaching for seconds and I am sure they will become a staple in your house like mine! With just the perfect amount of sweetness for a treat without being too heavy and the sprinkle of sea salt is the perfect sweet and salty compliment!
