Almond butter and m&m’s blondies (gf)

For a long time I’ve been looking for smooth almond butter and finally, I found it! I,recently,discover Barney butter  and is definitely my latest obsession! So smooth and light and not overwhelming whatsoever.

My daughter is totally in love with this. She is one of those kids who gets disgusted by peanut butter. Yes, I know..is weird but it really happens! She told me to make some cake and add a little bit of almond butter. So,I thought “Hmm.. BLONDIES!”

These beauties are so irresistible,the almond butter blends beautiful with the orange and the chocolate is just superb! Soft,moist,chewy and chocolatey it will definitely make you eat more than one piece!
