What is a Blondie?
Have you ever tried a gluten free blondie brownie?
I saw a recipe recently for an Applebee's copycat recipe, and I have not been able to get it out of my mind.
My sweet tooth was screaming for these blondies, and I knew I HAD to make a gluten free version. As I dug into creating this copycat recipe, I noticed a common theme. Flour and a ton of sugar. Substituting a gluten free flour for a regular flour was easy, and I added almond flour for some added protein...but this recipe is sweet like the original.
Can you believe I was able to reduce the amount of sugar by over a half a cup and switched the sugar out for a lower glycemic coconut sugar??"
This copycat recipe has it all. I hope you love these gluten free blond brownies as much as my family did.
By the time I was finished changing this recipe, my gluten free version was very different from the original. My family will be the first to say that the final result was pretty incredible.
This gluten free blond brownie is moist, chewy, and has just the right amount of sweetness. Are you ready to make a batch of these blondies?
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
I have tested two gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
Add the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, add the chips. In this case, I used peanut butter chips and white chocolate chips! Scoop dough into an 8x8 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until done.
Are peanut butter chips gluten free?
There are gluten free peanut butter chips, in fact, many are gluten free...they just are not certified gluten free. Hershey's said there are no gluten ingredients in their Reeses peanut butter chips. Just to be on the safe side, always read the labels to make sure there is no gluten in your chips.
How do you know when your blondies are fully baked?
The best way to know if your blondies are done baking is by sticking a toothpick into the middle of them. If your toothpick comes back clean, your blondies are ready. If there are crumbs or batter on the toothpick, you will need to bake them a bit longer.
There are so many ways to vary this gluten free blondies recipe. Here are some of my kids' favorites:
- Chocolate or white chocolate chips
- Walnuts or pecans
- Caramel chips
- Heath Bar Crunch pieces
- Butterfinger pieces
