Cherry Chocolate Chunk Blondies. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy/Egg/Sugar Free)

Take a break from your traditional Blondie recipe and mix it up with Fresh Cherries and Chocolate! Your tastebuds will thank you! Really, they will, especially when you experience the perfect texture of these bars. This is a recipe that is easy and adaptable to differing dietary needs.

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Blondies.


  • 2 Packed Cups of Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Potato Starch
  • 1/2 Cup Truvia (Or other granulated sugar of choice)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbs Oil or melted butter (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 3 Tbs Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 Cup Cherries pitted and halved


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 7.5 by 7.5 baking pan (or 8x8) with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine the Blanched Almond Flour, Potato Starch, Truvia, Baking Powder,Salt , Milk and oil.
  3. Mix in chocolate chips and cherries into the dry ingredients with hands to get the dough to come together.
  4. Press dough into baking pan. Place in oven and cook for 40 minutes. The bars will be golden bread and firm to touch.


To make this recipe sugar free pick up a bar or two of unsweetened dark chocolate or Simply Lite Chocolate - cut the bar into chunks and use instead of chocolate chips! Tapiocs or Arrowroot should work in place of the potato starch to make this recipe Paleo. I LOVE the texture the potato starch gives best- but the other starches should work out ok too. Store in a sealed bag or container in the fridge or freezer.

    I signed up to receive your recipes about a week ago. I keep seeing recipes posted on Facebook, but none have been sent to my email address…

    I don’t have potato starch.. think arrowroot will work?

    1. Erica

      would help if I read the last line.. just ignore me, LOL

  3. Melissa York

    would you use the same amount of arrowroot as potato starch?! Thanks!

  4. Erica

    am I missing when to add the oil and milk?

  5. Sharone

    this looks so wonderful! Can’t wait to try it!

  6. Nikki

    Can I use a gluten free flour blend instead of almond flour?

  7. Linda

    Brittany, you might want to edit your instructions, you accidentally left out the milk and oil? I’ll figure it out, but thought you’d want to know! 🙂 Recipe looks awesome, I can’t wait to make it later today, thank you!!!

  9. Kerry

    HI, I can’t have almonds along with gluten, wheat, yeast, eggs, etc…so happy to find your site. Is their another flour that would work for this?

  10. Donna

    Could I do this with WHITE chocolate chips without ruining your gorgeous results?..I love red fruit with white chocolate (cocoa butter/organic?)

    We are blondie FREAKS in this household…and this looks stellar…The golden hue you achieved is perfection.

    Wow… you’ve done it again! I love cherries and chocolate. Yum! We just got some organic cherries, so this recipe is getting made ASAP. Thank you!!

    Could you use frozen fruit/berries instead of fresh?

    1. Nargess

      I used frozen blueberries and it worked great. 🙂

  13. Ashley

    We are newly gluten, dairy, soy, egg, seed peanut, AND tree nut free due to anaphylactic allergies. Would something like oat flour or GF flour blend work in place of the almond flour?

    These look amazing and I am finding lots of inspiration on your site!

  14. Nargess

    I made these yesterday and used frozen blueberries in place of cherries and they turned out beautiful. I also added one egg. The dough was just not coming together and so added one egg.
    Thank you for great recipe 🙂

    Thanks for all your yummy recipes. You are awesome. I’m paleo due to food issues, not just for fun. It’s great to have this yummy stuff to try. My coworkers are all getting introduced to your good stuff, too.

    Question for you. I have some rolls I absolutely love, but it’s getting harder to get them. If I give you the ingredients label (and maybe a sample roll) would you be able to reproduce the product? I’d like to do this privately, at least until you get it and then choose to publish. PLease email me.
