Blondies

blondeAs 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.

Pour your batter into a small pan (mine was 8×8″ and I used parchment paper)… and of course, top with chocolate chips!

Bake for 30 minutes at 350 F, and then let it cool for 20 minutes before cutting.
Cut into squares (about 9-12), and enjoy!

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!
