This is a gluten-free and grain-free Strawberry Blondie Recipe. The strawberry adds a nice brightness to the rich and decadent gluten-free blondie base.
Strawberry blondies differ from brownies in several key ways. For one, a blondie is not dark brown like a brownie. For two, a blondie does not have strong chocolate flavors like a brownie.
However, both a brownie and a blondie have similar ooey gooey textures.
More specifically, a blondie is a chewy and fudgey vanilla version of a brownie. Which for those who prefer vanilla over chocolate, is a huge win!
And even if you do prefer chocolate over vanilla, you have to try this decadent Strawberry Blondie recipe. Not only is it SUPER easy to make but it’s absolutely delicious.
This Strawberry Blondie recipe is very quick and easy to make. With only 6 ingredients, and the ability to just dump all of them in to a blender and go, this recipe is perfect for those who need something sweet in a pinch.
First, the base of this recipe is nut butter and drained chickpeas. This combination together forms a fudgey texture that we all know and love in our blondies.
If you choose to use peanut butter, keep in mind it does tend to overpower the strawberry. Almost giving peanut butter and jelly blondie vibes. Bonus: if you do use peanut butter, this recipe with sport a whopping 9g of protein a serving!
For that reason, I like to use cashew butter because it lets the bright strawberry flavor carry better.
Moving on, this recipe calls for strawberry syrup to flavor the blondies. I like to use Wabry Strawberry Syrup (that is an affiliate link) for this, but you can also make your own strawberry syrup or use strawberry jam too.
Additionally, this grain-free blondie recipe calls for 2 eggs which unfortunately, have no good vegan substitutes if you’re trying to modify this recipe to be plant-based (trust me, I tried).
Lastly, this gluten-free strawberry blondie recipe used baking powder as a leavening ingredient. This helps give the blondie it’s fluffy yet fudgey texture. Don’t skip this.
