To make Cranberry White Chocolate Blondies you will need:

  • electric hand mixer
  • medium-size mixing bowl
  • parchment paper
  • 8×8 baking tin

How to make cranberry white chocolate blondies:

This is an easy one-bowl recipe!

  1.  First, cream together your butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer. Then add your eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Continue to mix those ingredients till combined. 
  3. Add in flour and baking powder, mix till just combined.
  4. Fold in your cranberries and white chocolate chips. 
  5. Transfer batter to your baking tin, the batter is sticky so spray hands with nonstick spray, you will thank me later, and even out the batter. 
  6. Bake 😊 

How do I bake a blondie:

I highly recommend using parchment paper in your baking tin! It makes for easy removal and clean up!

Also, if your using a glass baking dish your blondies will take an additional 18-25 minutes of baking time. It is easier to overcook blondies and brownies in a glass pan because it takes longer for the center to cook. My recommendation is to use a metal baking tin.

Blackberry Banana Bread Bars

With a pint of blackberries ready to eat and a few sad bananas in the fruit basket, I went ahead and took matters into my own hands. Whipped up this unique ONE BOWL, refined sugar free, Vegan and gluten free banana bread with a blackberry twist. This is not your average banana bread its a light, healthy and utterly delicious take on it!

Using a minimal 8 ingredients and one bowl because lets be honest…dishes are the pits! These bars where a huge hit after school today with my kiddos! Kid and mama approved is always a bonus!! This berrylicious banana bread is my new favorite. It is extremely simple to make, slightly dense, packs a big flavor and perfectly moist! The kids enjoyed it with a ice cold glass of almond milk and I love mine with some tea or coffee. It can be made in a bread pan but I find it comes out best in a brownie pan.

To make start with a medium size bowl and combine your ripe bananas, coconut sugar, chia seeds, almond milk and coconut oil. Mash bananas while mixing all ingredients together.

Now that wet ingredients are mixed, add in your almond flour and baking soda. Mix in the dry ingredients.


Gently fold in your blackberries, and transfer to your prepared baking dish.

Place more halved blackberries on top and bake!
