Vegan Blondies

Vegan blondies that are super rich, gooey, butterscotch-y, and chocolaty! Made egg-free with non-fussy ingredients, and ready in 20 minutes!

Get ready for the most ooey, gooey blondies you’ve ever tasted! Straight talk: I never used to be a big fan of blondies. Mainly because if they were even slightly over-baked, they were too dry for my taste. But then I discovered the world of vegan blondies! Because they are made egg-less, you can safely under-bake them slightly, leaving them ooey, gooey, and messy as the day is long. I’ve made two pans of these vegan blondies in the past week, and I am almost in need of another batch. That’s how crazy good (and a tad addictive) these blondies are.

Helpful Tips and Recipe Notes

Can I make a non-vegan version of these blondies? Yes! You can easily substitute 1 egg for the flax egg, dairy butter for the vegan butter, and your favorite chocolate chips for the vegan brand.

Because this recipe is egg-less, you can safely under-bake them for EXTRA GOOEY BLONDIES! If you are a fan of slightly under-baked cookies that are super gooey, I recommend baking this recipe for no longer than 16-17 minutes.

This blondie recipe can be made gluten-free. Simply substitute the same measurement of your favorite brand of gluten-free flour.

Substitute milk or white chocolate chips to make even sweeter blondies.

Blondies can be placed in an airtight container and stored at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

What Is the Difference Between Blondies and Brownies?

In a nutshell, blondies are simply brownies without cocoa powder/chocolate in the base! Blondies are just as rich and gooey as brownies, but have more of a butterscotch-y flavor to them. I liken them to be a cross between gooey chocolate chip cookies and cocoa-less brownies.

What Are the Needed Ingredients?

  • flax egg (*see note below)
  • vegan butter
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour

Step-By-Step Instructions

  • Prepare your flax egg by mixing together 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed and 3 tablespoons of water. Set it aside for 10-15 minutes, until mixture becomes gelatinous.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8″x8″ square pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar using electric hand mixer. Add vanilla extract and flax egg and mix thoroughly.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.
  • Transfer batter into baking pan and spread evenly. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the edges become a light golden brown. Let blondies cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooking rack by lifting parchment paper out of pan.
