Ingredients in vegan chocolate chip blondies

  • Flour: All-purpose flour, also known as plain flour, produces the best results. If you are gluten-free, you can swap it with gluten-free baking flour. I recommend using the Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 brand.
  • Sugar: These blondies are sweetened with both brown sugar and regular sugar. This combination creates a perfectly sweet flavor and moist texture.
  • Vegan butter: You can use any dairy-free butter, but I recommend the Earth Balance buttery sticks.
  • Chocolate chips: I love using a mixture of regular chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips. This creates a delicious variation in flavor and texture throughout the bars.
  • Non-dairy milk: Use your choice of non-dairy milk, such as almond milk or oat milk.
  • Cornstarch: Cornstarch enhances the overall texture. It makes the vegan blondies thicker and creates a tender, fudgy, chewy texture.
  • Baking powder: This leavening agent helps the chocolate chip blondie dough rise while baking in the oven.
  • Vanilla extract: A generous spoonful of vanilla extract produces a rich vanilla flavor.
  • Salt: Add a dash of salt to enhance all of the other ingredients.

Tips for making the best vegan chocolate chip blondies

Weigh the flour. To ensure you are not using too much flour, I recommend using a food scale to weigh it. This will produce the most accurate results. The recipe calls for 272g grams of flour.

Use regular and mini chocolate chips. To really bring your blondies to the next level, I recommend using a combination of regular chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips. This creates a delicious variation in taste and texture, making every bite different from the previous one.

How to make clean slices: Run a large knife under hot water for 15 seconds, then wipe dry with a paper towel. Gently slice into the bars. When the knife begins to cool down, repeat as needed.

Add flaky sea salt. If you love a sweet and salty dessert, sprinkle some flaky sea salt on top of the bars. This enhances the flavor and gives them a more professional, bakery-style appearance.
