Special thanks to Bob’s Red Mill for sponsoring this post and allowing me to share their line of Organic, Gluten-Free and Paleo Flours. During my first trimester, I suffered a strange allergic reaction. One of the many physicians that I saw put me on gluten free diet. It wasn’t easy at first; once I realized that brands such as Bob’s Red Mill made a great tasting gluten free flour, I didn’t struggle like I had previously. Today I’m sharing one of the first recipes that I made using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. These Peanut Butter Blondies taste identical to version made with regular all purpose flour. If you aren’t on a gluten free diet, they’re wonderful made with Bob’s Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour.
I also discovered shortly into my second trimester that chocolate causes me severe heartburn. Desserts had to be gluten and chocolate free, which isn’t easy. Thankfully, I love peanut butter. When these Peanut Butter Blondies are made with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, they easily satisfy my occasional sweet tooth.
Diced chocolate peanut butter cups are a great mix-n to the batter, if your family prefers chocolate.
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup peanut butter
- ⅓ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour or gluten-free 1 to 1 baking flour
- Optional 1 cup diced chocolate peanut butter cups
- Grease a 9 inch square baking pan
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Combine melted butter, salt and sugar.
- Mix in egg and peanut butter until thoroughly combined
- Add in the flour a ¼ cup at a time until incorporated
- Try not to over mix
- Fold in the diced chocolate peanut butter cups if desired
- Baked for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
I’ve found that Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour is great for converting most recipes to gluten free. You don’t have to deal with converting recipes or finding specialty flours. They also have Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour and Bob’s Red Mills Organic Unbleached White Flour. The organic flour is milled from organic hard red wheat. It provides light and airy baked goods.
Did you or your significant other have any pregnancy related food aversions or intolerances? What did you crave while you were pregnant? My aversions and cravings during this pregnancy are very different from my previous pregnancy.
I hope you’ll check out the line of line of flours available from Bob’s Red Mill and let me know what you’ve been baking.
