Vegan & Gluten-Free Blueberry Blondes - Iron Berry

Vegan & Gluten-Free Blueberry Blondes

You Will Need:

  •  1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup organic light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup organic dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oat milk
  • 1/2 a vanilla bean
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/4 cup millet flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegan white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons IronBerry Wild Blueberry Powder


  1. Lightly grease the base of an 8×8-inch brownie pan and line it with parchment paper, making sure there are a few extra inches around the sides of the pan to easily lift out the blondies.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  3.  In a large mixing bowl, mix together the banana, applesauce, oil, sugar, milk, and the vanilla seeds until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl sift together the flours, potato starch, baking powder, soda, and salt, and mix well.
  5. Add the dry mixture to the bowl of wet ingredients. Mix just until incorporated. The blondies should have a moist texture, so don’t over-mix.
  6. Finally, fold in the white chocolate chips and walnuts, pour the mixture into the prepared pan, and top with the blueberries
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, checking the blondies at 25 minutes by inserting a fine wooden stick (or cake tester) into the center of the cake. If the blondies are done the stick should come out mostly clean with just a few moist tiny crumbs. Be careful and do not over-bake.
  8. Let the blondies cool for approximately 30 minutes in the pan over a wire rack, remove from the pan, and let cool completely before slicing into 12 squares.

Serves 12 blondies
