These vegan blondies are crispy around the edges and chewy in the center. It’s a simple and delicious recipe to share with non-vegans because they will not even know it’s dairy free.
I love baking vegan treats like this vegan blondie recipe because I can taste the batter and not be nervous about eating raw eggs.
I’ve been eating vegan desserts since I was a little girl- not on purpose, my family preferred eating healthy, avoiding eggs and butter if possible. Only as an adult, I allow myself the luxuries of butter and eggs in my house. (Although my husband would rather not have me cook or bake with eggs. haha oh well.)
Something to note, I used carob chips to make the vegan blondies, however, if you don’t use high-quality carob chips, it’s not going to taste good as using vegan semisweet chocolate chips. (Trader Joe’s has delicious vegan semisweet chocolate chips and it’s affordable).
