Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: Chocolate Covered Katie

Snickerdoodle Blondies and Chocolate Chip Blondies

I discovered healthy dessert blogger, Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie, on Pinterest in November when I made her irresistible Chocolate Pumpkin Pizookie! When it came time for the November Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger event, hosted this month by Kalinda at Wheat Free, Meat Free, I knew I was going to adopt Katie. While Chocolate Covered Katie is not a gluten-free blog, the blog is easy to search for gluten-free recipes.

I have a huge sweet tooth and am intrigued by all of the healthy dessert recipes Katie posts. My experiences trying her recipes have always been positive. I indulge my sweet tooth, knowing that I'm eating healthier desserts without tasting it!

I recently made two of Katie's healthy blondie recipes - Chocolate Chip Blondies and Snickerdoodle Blondies. The Chocolate Chip variety tastes heavenly and like a classic blondie should. The Snickerdoodle variety is more fudgy than the Chocolate Chip variety, but it tastes equally as delicious!

Once you take a bite of either of these blondies, you'll have no idea that they are gluten-free, low calorie, and high in omega-3. Or, that they are flourless and the secret ingredient is white beans! I've used both garbanzo beans and great Northern white beans, which both work fantastically.

I have a few more recipes from Katie pinned to try someday, including Gooey PB&J Blondies, Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies, and Cookie Dough Dip. I'm confident they will all be amazingly delicious!

If you haven't tried Katie's Pumpkin Pread in a Bowl recipe then you are really missing out! I have that for breakfast almost daily!

Aww wow, I am so honored! And your blondies look beautiful.

You put a huge smile on my face!
