SCD Recipe: Cocoa Butter Blondies

If you miss brownies, these SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) blondies may be the ticket. I don’t cook with cocoa butter a lot because it a little expensive, but every once in a while it’s fun to treat yourself.

Cocoa butter doesn’t taste exactly like regular chocolate, but for SCD it’s about as close as we can get. The cocoa butter makes these nice and moist with a subtle white-chocolate type flavor.
