Chocolate Chip Tahini Blondies

The thing about being in quarantine is that you try to not go to the store as much as possible. Which restricts what can be whipped up at home, especially when you run a food blog. Which also means I have been turning to baking far too much. Which also also means my hubs is annoyed since I’m stuffing his face with warm treats on a daily basis. Tough life he lives. I’ll stop saying which now. But really, my baking is out of control lately. Chocolate chip oat bars one day, oatmeal cookies the next, and now these. It’s an addiction that I’m not fully ready to give up yet, ok? So hopefully you’re on board with eating warm treats all day errrrrrday. We’re in this together, people!

How’s the ole’ quarantine life going for you these days? I haven’t felt very bummed about it until it snowed on our 4 year anniversary and there was no where to go and no real way to celebrate. So we snacked all day and watched Peaky Blinders. That show is my new obsession. I found a giant painting of Thomas Shelby and I’m tempted to get it for our house…is that weird? My husband already knows I have a major lady boner for a fictional character, so he may have an issue with it. But he’ll get used to it. I mean, he’ll have to since we have NO WHERE TO GO. Speaking of, I wonder what Cillian Murphy and his drool-worthy cheekbones are up to these days. I wonder if he’s just staring into his own white walker blue eyes in the mirror at home, method acting it up while prepping for his next roll. I’d love to know. If you’re friend with him, feel free to give me the scoop. And let him know that I envy his cheekbones.

Other than having feelings for a fictional character, I’ve been spending most of my days either creating new fitness programs for you guys OR hanging out on Zoom. How is Zoom even handling the amount of people that use it at this point. What is their server like and how does it not crash? Riddle me that. I’ve already been on two Zoom calls today, one with friends and one for business, and I may have more tonight. But honestly, I feel like the Zoom calls are making me miss those people even more. I had a Zoom call with a bunch of people from my CrossFit gym this morning and now all I want is to be back in that gym with those people that make me smile the most. Going to the gym is definitely what I miss the most during this quarantine…now tell me, what do you miss most??

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hello there! I’m doing the power program (yay!) If I’m not quite to the point of plank Jack’s are plank toe taps an acceptable substitution? Thanks!

  2. Definitely missing the gym. And . . . my house cleaners (still paying them, but they obviously can’t come to our apartment). I know I’m spoiled, I KNOW, but MAN do I miss them.

  3. I miss my parents coming to my house to play with my daughter. I don’t miss pumping, cleaning the pump, cleaning bottles, saving milk in plastic bags, and labeling it. All of that is gone and I can just nurse my daughter but I miss my family so much. I also miss concerts! My husband and I plan to go to a concert on August 28 to see Greenday, Weezer and Fallout Boy at Fenway Park. We don’t even know if it will happen now. I also miss feeling safe and feeling like my family is safe. I hope we all can feel that way again in the future.

  4. I miss my family!!! Oh, and dancing to really great live music with, ya know, OTHER PEOPLE! I do a lot of dancing around my house but it’s not the same. Also, I know maybe this sounds weird, but I feel really badly for my dog because she usually gets to hang out at doggie day care with her buddies twice per week and I swear I can tell she misses being with her species! I haven’t been letting her play with other dogs at the park because I worry about people petting her or germs coming off their dog.. I don’t know… am I paranoid? STUPID COVID-19 got me like :-((((((
    I am very thankful to be working and that everyone I love is healthy, so that makes me :-)))))

      1. If you google “nut free paleo flour blend” there are a few options that come up! I google paleo flour blends all the time so I don’t have to buy the real thing (and I usually have the components on hand).

  5. Hi Juli! I’m having a super hard time ordering your power30 meal guide. I log in and go to my cart but it tells me my email is already registered. I’m not sure what to do. I’ve been trying for three days. I love all of your recipes so much!

  6. You’re too funny…this post is cracking me up! Thanks for making me laugh…because we have “NO WHERE TO GO.” LOL
    Blondies look delish. I would probably use regular ol’ AP flour because #pantrycookinglife.
    I made the chocolate chip oat bars and they are so good!
    Stay sane!

  7. Hey Juli! Thanks for the great recipe 🙂 I made it and it was delicious!! Also, I recently purchased your Power 30 program and meal guide! I saw in one of the recipes you suggested 2 cups of a paleo pancake mix. Near me there is only Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Pancake mix. One packet runs me $11 where I live :,) so I was wondering if you would consider doing a recipe on a Paleo Pancake mix? I know you have tons of recipes on the blog for pancakes but I wasn’t sure if the dry ingredients in those recipes could be ‘mixed now’ and then stored ‘for later’! I appreciate your time and thanks for all the great content 🙂

  8. Hi Juli – love your rants and workout and nutrition inspiration! Do you ever try to determine the nutritional info for your recipes?

    1. i do not. i don’t look at that information ever. i know that dessert isn’t something i should eat much and i don’t need nutritional info to tell me that. so i just try not to eat them too much! i like to keep eating as simple as possible so it doesn’t become an obsession like it has in the past

  9. I made these this weekend and they are INSANELY DELISH!! So filling too – you can tell they’re nutrient dense 😉 I didn’t have coconut sugar so I used half white sugar, half brown sugar and I didn’t have paleo baking flour so I used Bob red Mill’s GF Flour. They’re perfect! Thaks Juli!

  10. I baked these and they were delicious but they were so dry. The batter was very thick, I had to spread it into the dish.

    Any thoughts on what may have gone wrong?

    Thanks for the recipes.

    1. that probably has to do with your tahini. my tahini was quite runny, which means it has a little extra oil in it and that will lead to a more moist blondie. it’s nothing you did wrong! try that out and let me know how it goes!

  11. Juli, please keep baking! I have a wishlist!
    a gf/paleo recipe for pineapple cake – our March trip to Hawaii was cut short so we keep buying fresh pineapple in mourning
    gf/paleo banana bread cinnamon rolls – I saw a vegan recipe for this and am now obsessed (been making banana bread weekly and need a new twist!)

  12. We are new to tahini…I bought it to make something that did NOT turn out well, but then had the rest of the jar of it, and no idea what to do with it…plus a funky taste in my mouth from the recipe turned yuck. When I saw this recipe, I was skeptical but excited to use up the rest of our Tahiti. THIS DID NOT DISAPPOINT! So yummy! I added a little extra oil (maybe a TBS) because I saw the comment about hem being dry and noticed our tahini wasn’t very runny either. These are moist and DELICIOUS! My kids keep begging for more, and I might even be tempted to buy more tahini! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!
