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.

  1. Mmmm these blueberry blondies are delicious! I have never baked gluten free before and I was a bit nervous thinking the texture wouldn’t be the same, but boy was I wrong. I can’t wait to bring these to work so people can try them, or I will eat the whole pan who knows what will happen😂

  2. I made these blueberry blondies for a family friend & they were a “BIG” hit. He has both gluten & dairy allergies,. Definitely will make again & keep for the future.

  3. These are amazing. I added a tiny splash of almond extract (just cause I love it in everything lol), they were so good! My husband typically doesn’t really like gf desserts but he loved this one! Will definitely be making again.

  4. Wow!! I made these because I wanted a quick bake treat and happened to have everything on hand, my goodness, SO GOOD!! Will definitely be making these again soon.

  5. really tasty but came out very wet/sticky even after an extra 15 minutes baking time. used a kids apple purée pouch for the applesauce as in england so not sure if that affected it??






    1. Yes, the puree is a much thinner consistency than applesauce and was probably the culprit. What size of pan did you use?
