PEANUT BUTTER MARSHMALLOW BLONDIES (GRAIN FREE, SCD DIET) these peanut butter blondies are the perfect brownie replacement, perhaps even better: they've got an soft interior filled with marshmallows and roasted peanuts, with a second layer on top, baked until it's golden brown and gooey.

This may or may not be blasphemous to say, but I’ve actually never realllyyyyy been into brownies. Even when I could eat all the milk chocolate/chocolate in general that I wanted, brownies were never high on my priority list of goodies. I don’t think I ever really baked brownies of my own volunteer, either, it was a thing I would eat/make for the benefit of someone else. These days, brownies aren’t even in my line of vision really, as chocolate is pretty much off the table for me– following the SCD diet means you can’t eat cacao or chocolate, although I’ve dipped my toe into the raw cacao pool a time or two— but I waited two years into my SCD journey to try it. While I believe I tolerate cacao okay, I’m not trying to push my luck, at least not yet!

So that being said: since starting the SCD diet, I’ve discovered my love for brownies’ opposite friend, blondies (!!!). I mean who knew, or even heard of blondies growing up?!! I wish I had discovered them sooner. These blondie squares are basically a brownie, if a brownie wasn’t made of chocolate but instead, peanut butter, and thusly had a sweet, peanut butter-y flavour and was packed with peanuts, too. Oh, did I mention the MARSHMALLOW BITS???? Yes, said blondies also contain marshmallows, both on top as well as a ~secret~ middle layer. So, I’m pretty sure these are better than brownies?!?

If you don’t believe me, you may simply have to make them. And the other thing I love about blondies, is that the recipes tend to be super simple. No apparatus’ are necessary, simply a large mixing bowl, a spoon, and a baking dish. Although, marshmallows do require preparation if you’re making them from scratch, as I do, to keep them SCD friendly. I follow Danielle Walker @ Against All Grain’s marshmallow recipe, which you can find online and is super easy to make too! Making the marshmallows (or else ensuring you have them ready to go) may be the most difficult part of this recipe, to be honest.

Marshmallows aside, you need a few more simple ingredients and grain free baking staples — coconut flour, peanut butter, coconut milk or cream, honey, baking soda, vanilla extract and eggs! Finally, if you are feeling frisky you could always try to add-in something like chocolate chips (I’d say a 1/2 cup if you want to try it).

These blondies are going to be a hit with your family regardless, they are so pillowy soft, with the perfect brownie-like consistency, and the pockets of toasted marshmallows on top add another level of gooeyness. If you do try making them I’d love to see the results! You can always tag me on Instagram @grainfreee or comment below.

    These were a gigantic disappointment. I made the recipe and the batter was barely enough to cover a 4×6 pan, even halved like the recipe says. I ended up adding 1/2 a cup more of coconut flour.
    Then they came out overwhelmingly peanut butter. No nuances from anything coconut. I love peanut butter but this was too much. I salvaged these only by adding semi sweet chocolate chips. But the crunchy of the peanut pieces still throws it off. The photos make it look so much better than it actually is.

    1. Hi Patricia,
      I am so sorry to hear you had this much trouble with the recipe that is very disappointing indeed. I would love to troubleshoot this w you, I’m wondering what type of dish it was, I will also double check my dish measurements as I definitely did not have this issue – although I will say that you do need to actively spread the batter and that the batter will not look like very much to begin with, but it puffs up and fills out a small square or rectangular baking dish, which is what I had used, as you can see from my photos. Feel free to send me photos grainfreee@gmail.com if you have any – I hate to hear it did not come out right for you!
