Anytime I’m not in the mood for chocolatey fudgy baked goods (rare, but it happens) I always turn to blondies instead! I have had a ton of people asking for more blondie recipes because my people on Instagram love these things! Be sure to read to the end for more vegan recipes!

What is the Difference between Blondies and Brownies? 

Typically when you make brownies from scratch you are using cocoa powder for the full chocolate flavor. Blondies have a similar texture but the flavor is more cake-like. In this vegan batch of blondies, we will still have some chocolate flavor from the chocolate chips!

Ingredients for Vegan Blondies

Flour – to keep the blondies gluten-free I used oat flour, but you could swap this for almond flour as well. To make your own oat flour, simply add oats to a blender (this is the blender I use!) and blend until a fine powder forms!

Peanut Butter – you know my favorite is from Trader Joe’s, but if you are shopping at other places (like Costco or Kroger) just be sure it is natural. So drippy and the only other ingredient should be salt if any. Also, feel free to swap out peanut butter for your favorite nut or seed butter!

Salt – You can omit or reduce the amount if your nut butter is already salted. 

Maple Syrup – this is going to add some all-natural sweetness! The darker the syrup the more nutritious it is. Just be sure they didn’t sneak any additional ingredients in. Artificial maple syrup is on my list of 15 foods I DON’T buy at the grocery store. 

Almond milk – you can swap this for unsweetened coconut milk if needed

Chocolate chips – obviously dark chocolate is much healthier. Also, be sure to check out Lily’s chocolate. Their chocolate chips are sugar-free and non-GMO!

Other ingredients – baking powder, vanilla, and baking soda

How To Make Gluten Free Vegan Blondies 

  1. Preheat your oven and get your loaf pan ready. 
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl except for your chocolate chips.
  3. Once the batter is combined, fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
  4. Pour in your loaf pan, add the remaining chocolate chips on top, then bake! 
  5. Be sure to not overbake! You want the inside nice and gooey!

How To Store and Freeze Blondies 

After they have completely cooled, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 

To freeze, cut into slices and store in single layers separated by parchment paper. They will stay fresh up to 3 months!

To serve after freezing, let them thaw at room temperature or reheat them in the microwave for a few seconds.

    Amazing!!! It’s so difficult to find a tasty GF and vegan treat, but this one is the best I’ve found so far! I used almond butter, oat flour, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Used the additional tablespoons of milk. My hand mixer isn’t very good and the batter is fairly sticky so mixing by hand worked best for me. Already made two batches to share with friends!!

  2. I love this recipe! The perfect sweet treat made with feel-good ingredients! Sometimes I even have them as a quick pre workout snack. So yummy!

    My husband (not a vegetarian, let alone vegan) just said, “Give it 6 stars!” These PB Blondies are amazing! I used almond flour and adore the subtle, almost marzipan flavor. I only had a cheap creamy peanut butter on hand and Rice Dream milk, but oh wow. The only other thing I changed was using white chocolate covered Reeses cups* & peanut butter chips because I’m allergic to real chocolate, but I think they’re fantastic. I was confused by “grease and line the loaf pan,” though. I finally lined my 8×8 Pyrex dish with parchment paper, and then lightly greased the paper with refined coconut oil. They come out perfectly, but if it’s oil free, what are you supposed to do? (I’m a novice baker, sorry for a stupid question!) With an 8×8 dish. I baked for 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing this!
    *I’m not a pure vegan yet, so I don’t know if Reeses cups are vegan.

  4. Can I substitute the maple syrup with coconut sugar + more almond milk or honey (I know it is not vegan, I’m just dairy free 🙂 )? Thanks

    1. Hi Jessica! I have only made the recipe as listed but you should be able to swap maple syrup out for honey at a 1:1 ratio. If you need more liquid you can always add more almond milk. Keep in mind, the batter will be thick so you don’t want to add too much. Hope this helps and let me know how it goes! Thanks!
