Blueberry White Chocolate Blondie Ingredients & Substitutions
As always this recipe is gluten-free and vegan. That said, I do test each recipe with “regular” ingredients and make notes of alternatives or swaps so that everyone can enjoy it.
Here are a few key ingredients for these cookies but make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom recipe card for the complete ingredient list.
Gluten-Free Flour: I made these cookies with Kinnikinnick gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Note that gluten-free flour blends can vary in weight so I recommend measuring by the cup. If you are not gluten-free, swap the flour with regular all-purpose flour.
Vegan Butter: I enjoy baking with Becel plant-based bricks but any vegan/dairy-free butter substitute will work. Use regular salted butter if you are not vegan or dairy-free.
Brown Sugar: You can use light or dark brown sugar. I used light. Cane sugar, coconut sugar, or date sugar will also work.
Applesauce: Both sweetened and unsweetened applesauce will work. You may also swap in 2 flax eggs or 2 regular eggs.
Blueberries: Fresh or frozen will work.
Vegan White Chocolate Chips: I adore baking with Pascha vegan mini white chocolate chips but any brand, type, or size of chocolate chip will work in this recipe. Use whatever best fits your dietary/lifestyle needs.
Step By Step Instructions
1. Combine the melted butter, brown sugar, applesauce, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until smooth.
2. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix together until just combined. It’s okay if there are a few streaks of flour visible.
3. Gently fold in the blueberries and white chocolate chips and pour into a prepared 8×8-inch pan. Top with a few extra blueberries and white chocolate chips if desired.
4. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Place on a cooling rack and allow to fully cool.
5. Top with additional melted white chocolate and coarse sea salt if desired and slice. Enjoy!
Blueberry Blondie Recipe Tips & Tricks
Removal: For easy removal, prepare the baking pan with both non-stick baking spray and 2 pieces of parchment paper. Run a butter knife around the edge of the fully cooled blondies and use the parchment paper edges as handles to gently remove the blondies.
Baking Time: Note that fresh blueberries will require a shorter baking time than their frozen counterpart.
Blueberries: If you are using frozen blueberries, do not thaw them prior. Mix them into the blondie batter straight from the freezer.
Texture: Blondies are meant to be ooey gooey and fudgy. If you like a more cookie-type texture, increase the baking time.
Blueberry Blondies FAQs
Can I Use Real Eggs?
Yes, see the above section for ingredient substitutions.
Will This Recipe Double?
Absolutely. If you would like to double the recipe use a 9×13-inch baking pan.
What’s the difference between a brownie and a blondie?
Brownies use cocoa powder whereas blondies do not. Blondies have a more buttery caramel-type flavor than chocolate.
Am I Able To Use Other Berries?
Blueberries, raspberries, cherries, etc. Any type of berry will work in this recipe. If you choose to use a larger berry, give it a little chop first.
How To Serve And Store
Cut into 9 or 16 squares once fully cooled and serve as is, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a cup of coffee or tea.
Store leftover blueberry white chocolate blondies in an airtight container for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 6 months.
Pro Tip: Give them a quick little 15-second warm-up in the microwave for the ultimate ooey-gooey blondie bite.
