Gluten Free Blondies Recipe
I love having gluten free recipes that are so good everyone enjoys them. This recipe is one that even the non-gluten-free will enjoy thoroughly. A nice rich flavor with vanilla and white chocolate underlying tones is perfect for a sweet treat served with your favorite tea or cocoa.
If you don't need to worry about gluten-free, you might like these triple chocolate fudgy brownies instead. They are super thick and dense, so perfect for a small portion to satisfy your chocolate cravings. You can even make them with a 1:1 gluten-free flour substitute if wanted. Another option that is gluten-free by chance are these keto brownies. They are a great chocolate version that is sugar free and uses an almond flour base.
What is the Difference Between a Brownie and Blondie?
The biggest difference between the two is the chocolate. Brownie recipes included milk, semi-sweet, and even dark chocolate. Blondie recipes use white chocolate or even in some cases, no chocolate at all. They are also, a blonde color which suits the name perfectly.
Is White Chocolate Gluten Free?
Generally speaking, cocoa butter, milk, and sugar used in white chocolate are gluten-free. However, you should always verify when purchasing white chocolate that it was prepared in a gluten-free facility. Many white chocolate chips are made in facilities that contain gluten products. In this case, it is important to be aware. If you don't have severe reactions, it may still be fine for you to use, but it is always best to find certified gluten-free chocolate instead.
What Kind of White Chocolate Should I Use?
After some research, I found that it is rare to find truly certified gluten-free white chocolate. Some brands that offer gluten-free products and may include options for white chocolate are Nestle, Alter Ego, Enjoy Life, Endangered Species, and Dove Chocolate. Just make sure when purchasing that you check to see if there are any wheat warnings or potential for cross-contamination.
Can I Add Other Mix-Ins?
Yes! You can definitely add other gluten-free mix-ins to the blondies if you wish. Adding them to the top or just folding them in along with the white chocolate chips are both good options. Below are a few you might like to try in your blondies. Just remember when you add mix-ins to keep the total to 1 cup of additions. So, if adding alongside the chocolate chips, subtract the amount of chocolate chips to equal only 1 cup.
- Walnuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios, or macadamia nuts
- Dried cranberries, raisins, golden raisins, apricots, or pineapple
- Chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, or holiday flavored chips
Why Are My Blondies Cakey?
Most often, the reason a blondie is cakey has to do with the moisture or fat in the mixture. It may also be due to the inclusion of both baking powder and baking soda. These can make the blondies lighter and more cake like rather than dense and chewy.
Why are My Blondies Dry?
Over baking is usually the reason blondies turn out dry. Almond flour can also be dryer than other options. For this recipe, checking at the 30 minute mark is a must. It is okay to remove them from the oven if they are still a little under done if you prefer a softer blondie.
