How to make Keto Pumpkin Blondies: step-by-step guide
Before starting the cooking process, it's essential to take the following preparation steps:
- Measure and gather all the ingredients to have them ready for use.
- Grease an 8-inch cast iron skillet with oil or butter to ensure the blondies won't stick when baked.
- Preheat your oven to 350° F (180° C) to ensure it's at the right temperature for baking.
- If using a baking pan instead of a cast iron skillet, line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides to remove the blondies after baking quickly.
- If you're using chocolate chips in large or bar form, chop them into smaller pieces for even distribution in the batter.
- Prepare a cooling rack or a large plate to cool down the blondies after baking.
- Combine dry ingredients: Whisk together the almond flour, granulated erythritol, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice in a large mixing bowl. This will ensure that all the dry ingredients are well combined and evenly distributed.
- Mix wet ingredients: Mix the melted unsalted butter, pumpkin puree, large egg, and vanilla extract in a separate medium bowl. Stir until everything is well combined and smooth.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients: Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredient mixture, and stir until everything is thoroughly combined. The batter should be smooth and without any lumps.
- Add chocolate chips: Fold the chocolate chips into the batter, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout.
- Transfer to a skillet: Transfer the pumpkin blondie batter into the greased 8-inch cast iron skillet or lined baking pan. Use a spatula to spread the batter evenly across the skillet or pan.
- Bake: Place the skillet or pan in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs. Be cautious not to overbake, which can result in a dry texture.
- Cool and slice: Allow the Blondies to cool completely in the skillet or pan before removing them. Once cooled, lift the blondies from the pan using the parchment paper overhang (if using a baking pan), and place them on a cutting board. Slice into even squares and your fluffy pumpkin blondies are ready!
Chef's pro tip
Be mindful of the baking time and temperature for perfectly moist and chewy Pumpkin Blondies. Since every oven behaves differently, it's crucial to start checking the blondies around the 16-minute mark.
If the edges are browning too quickly while the center is still undercooked, you can loosely cover the skillet or pan with aluminum foil. This will help to prevent the edges from overbaking while allowing the center to cook evenly, resulting in a perfectly balanced blondie texture.
