Almond Butter Coconut Blondies

Gluten free, dairy free

These treats are made with no grains at all! Instead they contain protein rich eggs and almond butter but feel free to make these nut free with sunbutter. Just be sure to add a teaspoon of lemon juice as sunbutter can sometimes turn green in baking.  This happens due to a chemical reaction with the chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) contained in sunflower seeds, a little acidity will prevents this from occurring.
