Salted Vanilla Maple Blondies

Salted Vanilla Maple Blondies Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


1½ cups oat flour (certified gluten-free if necessary)

¼ cup sweet white rice flour

¼ cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

2 tablespoons tapioca powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup cashew butter

½ cup maple syrup

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Scrapings from inside 1 vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon vanilla powder)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Flaked sea salt


1Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8 × 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

2Let some hang over the edges, to make it easy to removed the blondies from the pan.

3Whisk together the oat flour, rice flour, coconut sugar, tapioca powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

4Use a hand mixer to mix together the cashew butter, maple syrup, applesauce, and coconut oil in a large bowl.

5Stir in the vinegar, vanilla bean scrapings, and vanilla extract. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well incorporated.

6Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and lightly sprinkle sea salt flakes over the top.

7Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and firm and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8Remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan.

9Once cool, use the parchment paper to lift the blondie out of the baking dish. Slice into 12 pieces.

10You can store the blondies in an airtight container at room temperature, but they’ll hold their moisture longer when refrigerated. They’ll keep for 3 to 4 days.

11I’m sure I don’t need to tell all you crazy chocoholics out there that these blondies are just begging for chocolate chips.

12Fold ½ cup vegan chocolate chips into the batter before transferring to the baking dish.
