A few months ago I created the ultimate vegan gluten free brownie recipe, it’s the best V+GF brownie ever! I’ve changed the recipe a little bit and now I wanna share with you this vegan gluten free blondie, it’s epic!
Blondies resemble the traditional chocolate brownie, but are based on brown sugar instead of cocoa powder. Some people add white chocolate, but I prefer this version.
I’ve added homemade applesauce because it makes the blondie so moist and fudgy. I’ve used date syrup (mixed with some water to make it less thick) instead of caramel sauce, it’s one of my favorite toppings and is super healthy.
You don’t need to use the same flours I’ve used, you can also use white or whole wheat flour, oat flour or any other gluten free flour blend. If you are a celiac or follow a gluten free diet, maybe this post can help you to substitute wheat flour in any recipe you wanna make.
If you use other flours, maybe you’ll need to add more or less. If the dough is too thick, add more applesauce or oil if is not thick enough add more flour.
Flax seeds are my favorite egg replacer, they always work and have a similar texture when you blend them with water. Feel free to use other replacers like Chia seeds, applesauce, mashed bananas, etc.
I (almost) always use extra virgin olive oil to cook, it has an intense flavor, but I love it! (I’m Spanish :)) If you don’t like how it tastes or if is expensive in your country, you can use other kind, but try to avoid refined oils, they are not good for your health.
There are so many nuts you can use instead of the walnuts if you don’t like them, or even you can remove them. The applesauce can be replaced by jam or some vegan butter (I’m in love with this homemade peanut butter recipe!!!).
I’m trying to avoid refined sugar, so I’m using dates, date syrup, maple or agave syrup or coconut sugar (non gmo and sustainably grown and harvested) instead. If you use any molasses or syrup, add less applesauce or oil and if the dough is too wet, add more flour.
This is the healthiest blondie I’ve ever tried, is lower in fat and cholesterol than others and tastes even better, seriously. I really love date syrup, is 100% natural and you only need dates and water to make it. If you make this recipe, please let me know!Print
