Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars

Yesterday was a sad day.

Aretha Franklin passed away.  So I spent the day listening to her music.

I found this great performance of hers from 1964 when she went on the Steve Allen Show. 

This recording is years before she would be known as the "Queen of Soul".  She was actually known more as a gospel singer and as a jazz pianist at that time.  Here she is singing her very first hit single, "Won't Be Long".  (below)  

Lady could sing.

It was a sad day so I decided to do some therapeutic baking.  I made a batch of low carb chocolate chip blondie bars.  The recipe is based on a great one for Browned Butter, Tahini and Pecan Blondie Bars that I found on Have Butter Will Travel.  The browned butter and tahini give the bars a wonderful rich flavor.  And I threw in some chocolate chips because chocolate equals happiness.

So here is my best advice:

Bake up some blondie bars, make yourself a cup of coffee, and put Aretha Franklin on the hi-fi.

And long live the Queen.
