Pegan Plantain Blondies (Paleo, Vegan, No Added Sugar)

These “pegan” (vegan + paleo) blondies are moist, chewy in the middle with a light golden crust on top and naturally sweet from yellow plantains with NO added sugar at all. Eat these for dessert or breakfast – they’re that good and nutritious!

Recipe Stars:

Plantains contain a ton of potassium and magnesium. They act as both the binder and sweetener in this recipe making them as versatile as they are delicious!

Flaxseed meal add in great nutrients like: Omega-3’s, fiber, plant protein, and more! Magnesium, manganese, B vitamins are among them. They are a great egg substitute if you’re sensitive or just plain ran out of eggs 🙂

The flours used in this recipe combine to be easy on the stomach and are grain-free.

Using 100% dark chocolate in this recipe was an easy fit since the blondies are so sweet already from the plantains. When you’re consuming chocolate without the dairy and sugar, you get all the benefits such as: increased blood flow and blood pressure (improving heart health), disease prevention (thanks to the high antioxidant content), cholesterol control and more.

    I just love the ingredients you use and the clever ways you turn them into treats. And 100% cacao chocolate is totally my jam!

    these look great. I haven’t used tigernut flour before and I would like to give it a try. Nor have I used plantations. How can you tell if they are ripe? the ones I occasionally see in the store are green. Does that mean that they are not ripe? or is it a different kind?
