Sorry for my lack of posts on the blog lately, I’ve been posting daily pictures on Instagram and Facebook but I’ve been so busy I couldn’t find much time for a new blog post.
Today I will share with you one of my favorite recipes for healthy, delicious, oil & gluten free blondies that you and everyone at home will love!
These were a special recipe for Valentine’s Day, I wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out but I was amazed at how yummy and similar in texture to non-vegan blondies they were. Besides being absolutely delicious, they are pretty easy to make and will be ready faster than you think!
Gastrawnomica’s Gluten/Oil Free & Addictive Vegan Chocolate Chip Blondies
Yields 8-10 medium squares
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
2 ripe bananas, mashed (around 1 cup)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup almond milk
Vegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven at 180ºC.
Mix all your dry ingredients in a large bowl, making sure you sift the flours to avoid lumps. In another bowl mix bananas, tahini, vanilla and milk. Add into dry ingredients and mix well until smooth and you have a dough consistency. Fold in chocolate chips.
Transfer mixture to a non-stick square pan or a lightly greased pan with coconut oil. Top with extra chocolate chips if desired.
Bake for 30-35 min. Until edges are golden but still lightly soft on the inside. Remove from oven and let it sit for 15-20 min before cutting into squares.
Serve and enjoy!
Warning: HIGHLY addictive!
Hope you try them and let me know what you think, I hope you love them just as much as we did!
Talk to you soon!
** I made heart-shaped blondies for Valentine’s Day. The cookie dough was soft and I managed to use a cookie cutter and bake on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Consistency was just like a traditional chocolate chip cookie!
