What Are Blondies?
You probably know what brownies are, but what are blondies? Blondies are similar to brownies, but they don’t contain cocoa powder or melted chocolate.

Keto Strawberry Blondies Ingredients
For this recipe, you will need some easy-to-find ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Here is everything you will need:
- Eggs – They are used to bind all the ingredients. This recipe works well with large eggs. If your eggs are smaller, you will certainly need one extra. Make sure to bring the eggs to room temperature to avoid the eggy taste.
- Butter – gives the keto blondies a buttery flavor and keeps them moist.
- Vanilla Extract – make sure that you are using the best quality vanilla extract that you can find.
- Brown Sugar Alternative
- Almond and Coconut Flour – I like to use this combination of keto flours since they work well together and help the blondies become incredibly fluffy.
- Baking Powder – makes this cake super fluffy.
- Strawberries – I enjoy baking with seasonal fruit, and when strawberries are in season, I make sure to use them in as many desserts as possible. If you are not a fan of strawberries, you can also add blueberries or any low carb fruits.
- Salt – is used to enhance all the flavors.
Sugar-Free Strawberry Glaze
- Sweetener – make sure that you are using powdered sweetener to mix well.
- Strawberry Puree – simply add the strawberries to a bowl and mash them using a fork or a puree them in a blender.
- Lemon Juice – this ingredient is perfect for balancing flavors in this strawberry glaze.
How To Make Keto Strawberry Blondies
To make these delicious keto strawberry blondies, you will have to follow a few simple steps. Trust me when I tell you that you will not find an easier recipe than this.
Making the batter. Start by combining the eggs, butter, vanilla extract, and granulated sweetener in a large mixing bowl. Beat using an electric mixer for about 1-2 minutes, or until frothy.
Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until a smooth batter forms.
Clean and dice the strawberries into small pieces, then incorporate them into the batter.
Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes in the preheated oven.
Remove the blondies from the oven and set them aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
Make the strawberry glaze. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix until the powdered sweetener dissolves entirely.
Top the blondies with the strawberry glaze and store them in the fridge for about one hour.
PRO TIP: Ensure that you don’t overbake your blondies since they will become tough and dry. Cook until slightly under-baked for a gooey texture or until fully done for cakey keto blondies.
