-No glutens were harmed in the making of these blondies-

Growing up, my mom was known around town as a great baker. There was hardly a lunch packed without a brownie or a piece of coffee cake. When friends came over, there were always cookies on the counter or in the fridge (Mum loves cold CCC’s). And you can bet that when there was a birthday, my mom made the cake.

Sarah’s birthday = chocolate cake
Rebe’s birthday = carrot cake
Mum’s birthday = coconut cake

I knew from an early age that my mom was a talented baker. I can vividly picture sitting at a middle-school lunch table, unwrapping my brownie, and hearing the familiar quiet question:

Can I have a bite of your brownie?

Then another:

Me… too?

And on and on until everyone at the table had a scrap of brownie in their hand… myself included, seeing as I had given almost all of it away.

One of our favorite recipes by Mum was Blondies. The texture of a brownie with the flavor of a cookie. What’s not to love? They were a staple and in the regular rotation of desserts in our household.

Their texture is soft and chewy, yet with a crispy top. They’re loaded with thick dark chocolate disks that melt in your mouth. And these gluten-free blondies have- you guessed it- zee-ro glutens in them.

Now, want to make this not-gluten-free? Totally doable! Just substitute the gluten-free flour for an equal amount of all-purpose flour.

Either way, you’ll end up with a dessert that will have your boyfriend/girlfriend/roommate/spouse/child/friend/dog/belly begging you for more.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Gluten Free Flour (I used King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate baking disks/chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8″x8″ baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla during last minute of mixing. Turn mixer speed to low and mix in flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined. Remove from standing mixer and fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Place dough into baking dish and smooth using the back of a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted in the center of the dough comes out mostly clean. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before removing from pan and cutting into 9 squares!

  1. We’ve loved this blonde recipe for many years! The only adjustment we make is to reduce chocolate chips to 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup each white chocolate and butterscotch chips.

  2. Very, very sweet, even with the bittersweet chocolate chips I used. I think it would help to dust the chocolate chips with some of the flour, because mine settled to the bottom. I liked them because I ate two! I used King Arthur regular gluten free flour because that’s what I thought you had used. But I realized a little late that particular flour didn’t have xanthan gum. So I guess you used Measure for Measure KA flour. So mine went in a little late in the process and probably didn’t get all the way through the batter. But they held together well, mostly. Thank you for the recipe! I will try them again sometime, correctly, because I do like blondies.

  3. Do I need to add xan gum to my all purpose Gluten free flour for this recipe? My flour is Bob’s Red Mill all purpose with no xan gum in it.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Christine! The gluten free mix we used has xanthum gum in it, so I would recommend adding some!

  4. Made the Gluten Free Blondies for my son friend. It was my first time baking with gluten free flour. We were very impress how moist the brownies was. I made a second batch because the first was all eaten. I shared the recipe with my son’s friend. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you!
