Maple Blondies

I know I say this about every dessert I make, but Maple Blondies are my ABSOLUTE favorite, ever. They have the most perfect texture — so soft and chewy — are just so happen to be gluten and dairy free.

You may or may not know that brownies are my absolute favorite dessert ever. I’ve made a few FAILSAFE versions with carob (chayote brownies, black bean brownies) and they have been a pretty delightful substitute. I mean, they’re brownies. They can’t be BAD.

I also used to make a semi-healthy blondie recipe that used chickpeas and peanut butter. I was having trouble figuring out how to make it FAILSAFE, so I decided to just look up regular old blondie recipes. Turns out THEY weren’t hard to make FAILSAFE and came together with some basic pantry staples like flour, maple syrup, brown sugar, oil, and eggs.

I was also really curious to try the maple extract that I purchased from OliveNation on Amazon (affiliate link).

I figured this would be a win-win kind of thing.

Holy heck was I right.

These maple blondies are seriously the best thing ever. The flavor is bursting at the seems. The texture of the bar is absolute perfection (they are chewy and moist). The only problem I can find with them is that they are gone WAY too quickly. At least according to my kids who barely get to enjoy a bar before they disappear.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180C. Line an 8×8 inch glass baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combing flour, baking powder, and brown sugar. Whisk to combine, making sure to break up any large lumps of brown sugar.

  3. Add in maple syrup, egg, oil, and maple extract. Stir to combine. It will look like you don’t have enough liquid in your batter and that it will NOT come together under any circumstance, but hold on tight. Because it does and it will.

  4. Transfer batter into your prepared baking dish and gently smooth it out so that it covers the bottom of the pan.

  5. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container or freeze.
