I’m so excited to share this Vegan Biscoff Blondie recipe with you guys, these are so easy to make, they taste delicious, and they’re healthy too- it’s a triple win!
I used a (not so) secret ingredient in these too- apples. I used apples to make a purêe to help to give an extra sweetness, and I also chopped some in for some extra texture. Biscoff also goes so well with apples so it’s a match made in heaven!
What are blondies?
Traditionally blondies are a white chocolate version of brownies, however more recently there’s been a rise of more non-chocolate blondies on the web/social media. There’s no white chocolate in this Vegan Biscoff Blondie recipe, as the vanilla, cinnamon and apple purée give a sweet enough flavour.
To make this Vegan Biscoff blondie recipea little healthier I used Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener (brown sugar version). It’s a combination of erythritol and monk fruit and can be used as a 1:1 substitution with sugar- making recipe calculations super easy! You can use an alternative low sugar sweetener of your choice however I’ve found that this Monk Fruit one has the best well rounded sweetness to match that of actual sugar. Alternatively you could just use regular sugar but just bare in mind that these Biscoff Blondies won’t be as healthy that way.
For me, Biscoff was the tastiest and easiest choice for these blondies. The sweet biscoff spread just goes perfectly with the slightly tart apples. I then crumbled over some crushed Lotus biscuits for a little extra texture. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you could try making your own vegan caramel drizzle by blending soaked dates with coconut milk to form a sauce.
