These vegan blondies are such an easy, delicious dessert! Nobody will believe that they’re actually healthy.
Blondies are one of my favorite quick desserts to make. When I don’t have time to go in and out of the oven with a batch of cookies, I like to make a big batch of pan cookies.
These vegan blondies are deliciously sweet. The maple syrup gives them a rich, brown sugar type of flavor. The texture is dense and moist. It’s hard to believe there are no eggs or butter in them.
I like to eat these blondies within two days of baking. Any extras can be frozen for another time. You’ll be lucky if you still have leftovers after two days!
Vegan Blondies Tips
I use a flax egg in addition to applesauce to get the right texture in these vegan blondies. To make a flax egg, stir together the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl. Set it aside for a few minutes while you prepare the other ingredients, and it will thicken to a texture similar to an egg.
Full fat coconut milk is a nice rich addition to this recipe, but you can also use my thinner homemade coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk.
Bake these vegan blondies until they’re set in the center, about 35 minutes. They’re nice and moist at this point. If you bake them too long, they’ll end up a bit drier.
For a non-vegan batch of blondies, try my gluten-free blondie recipe. They use eggs for texture, and they’re just as delicious!
- 1 tbs flaxseed meal
- 2 1/2 tbs water
- 2 1/4 cups gluten free flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 inch pan.
- In a small bowl, stir together the flaxseed meal and water. Set aside to thicken.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the applesauce, coconut milk, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and flax egg mixture. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until all the flour is incorporated into the batter. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
- Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake for about 35 minutes, until the top is set and light golden in color. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.
- Cool on a wire rack before cutting into 12 blondies. Store at room temperature for up to 2 days, or freeze for later.
This recipe costs a total of $8.67 to make, or $.72 per serving. Try these delicious gluten free, vegan blondies for an easy dessert that everyone will love. They’re so much easier to make than a traditional batch of cookies.
