Vegan Blondies

Super sweet and sure to please anytime you have a sugar craving, classic Blondies are easy to veganize and to enjoy!

Growing up, my mom did alot of home baking and there would always be a home baked treat for an after-school snack. One of my favorites after-school treats were Blondies. These super sweet blonde brownies were so good they were almost addictive.

The main sweetener of both the cake base and icing is brown sugar which gives them rich caramel flavour. The squares are slightly chewy and full of walnuts, a nice contrast to the sweetness of the icing. Blondies are also very easy to make. They take a little while but are well worth it.

How to make vegan Blondies

Blondies are made up of a cake base and thick caramel icing. They are very sweet but you can use less icing if you find them too sweet. The recipe is very easy. Combine the cake ingredients in a bowl and bake in a 8×8 pan. While it’s baking, make the icing by boiling ingredients together. Once cake is cooled, add icing. Let cool completely in the the pan and then cut into squares.

This is a really fun and easy recipe that will definitely satisfy your inner sweet tooth. Blondies are perfect for anytime, after school, a work or study break or to bring on a picnic. Give them a try and enjoy!
