Almond Butter Quinoa Blondie Brownies

Really yummy, healthy brownies.  Be sure not to overbake - pull out of oven when they are slightly doughy (just like brownies), otherwise they will be too dry.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups smooth or crunchy almond butter
4 large eggs
1 to 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups quinoa flour (you can ground quinoa in a coffee grinder if you don't want to buy the flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam spray.  Beat butter and almond butter in a mixing bowl until creamy.  Beat in eggs, brown sugar and vanilla.  Add in baking powder, vanilla and salt.  Add in quinoa flour, and chocolate chips.  Do not overmix. 

Spread the dough evenly in pan and bake at 350 for 25 to 35 minutes.
