Sugar Free, Low Carb Brown Butter Blondies

As the leaves start to change and we cozy up with our favorite sweaters, it’s undoubtedly baking season – a time for warm, comforting treats that don’t have to derail your healthy eating plans. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be guiding you through a series of sugar-free, low-carb baked delights, kicking off with a personal favorite – blondies.

These aren’t your ordinary blondies. They’re a health-conscious twist on the classic, where hints of caramel waft through the air as they cool on the counter. Made with a brown sugar substitute, in this case, Swerve Brown for its rich caramel-like flavor, these blondies stay true to their roots with a moist and chewy texture.

What makes this recipe stand out is the browned butter, a simple step that imparts a toasty warmth deep into each bite. Paired with the richness of full-fat cream cheese and the nuttiness of finely milled almond and coconut flours, these blondies are a testament to how low-carb alternatives can echo the indulgence of their traditional counterparts. And, if you’re like me and believe that more is more, toss in some sugar-free vanilla chips and a handful of pecans or walnuts – these add-ins bring a delightful texture and depth to the mix.

Now, let’s walk through the creation of these little squares of joy.

  • 4 tbsp stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 – 1 cup brown or golden sweetener I like Lakanto Golden Monkfruit with Allulose
  • 4 oz full-fat cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup finely milled almond flour
  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum optional
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free white chocolate chips optional
  • 1/8 cup chopped walnuts or pecans optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the baking pan with butter or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the butter, swirling frequently. Continue to cook the butter. Once melted the butter will foam up a bit, then calm back down. Watch carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat.
  • Using an electric mixer on medium high, beat together the butter with sweetener, cream cheese, and vanilla until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition, stopping and scraping the bowl once or twice, as needed.
  • Fold in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum (if using), and salt.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips and nuts (if using). Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow the blondies to cool completely before slicing into 24 bars and serving.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days or freeze for up to 3 weeks
