As we all know, I’m a chocoholic, and it’s fair to say I’ve tried just about every gluten-free (and dairy-free) brownie that I’ve ever come into contact with. As much I like chocolate, I also like blondes… blonde pastries that is. I’ve recently begun seeing more and more recipes out there for blondie treats, so I figured it was time for me to change it up a bit. Well here, ladies & gentlemen, is my first stab at a gluten-free and dairy-free Blondie Brownie!
What You Will Need:
1 cup gluten-free flour
1 cup light brown sugar
½ cup dairy-free butter, softened
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
What You Will Do:
In a small bowl, mix your brown sugar and melted butter together. Stir for a few minutes until the two are totally incorporated and smooth.
Add egg and vanilla, and mix.
In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients.
Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients, and mix until combined.
The verdict? Definitely good, but there is still a little something missing. The chocolate really made it for me, but I want to perfect this recipe as a standalone, sans chocolate. I’ve read some recipes that use maple syrup for added flavor, and others that incorporate dairy-free milk. Stay tuned as I try to perfect this recipe, but I definitely feel like I’m off to a good start!
