I got the idea to make these blondies from a recipe using regular ingredients (flour etc) and adapted it to make it healthy. I love making them because they take  less than ten minutes to prep and are delicious when they come out of the oven. I serve them warm (although they are a little crumbly at this stage), I can’t wait for them to cool. And I serve them with a dollop of nut butter and a scoop of Nobó salted caramel or vanilla and coconut works well too.

Serves: This recipe makes 9 blondie squares


110g of coconut oil
110g coconut palm sugar
1 vanilla pod
100g coconut yoghurt
2tblsp of honey or maple syrup
250g of rice flour (other flours work well too!)
2 tsp of gluten free baking powder
100ml coconut milk or almond milk
100g dark chocolate (I used conscious chocolate)

1. Melt the coconut oil over a low heat and then coconut sugar with the coconut oil until light.
2.  Add the vanilla pod, honey (or maple syrup) and yoghurt.
3. Add the flour and baking powder.
4.Once incorporated add the milk.
5. Add the broken pieces of chocolate.
6. Put in a lined, square baking tin and flatten with wet finger tips.
7. Put in an oven at Gas 5 (190 degrees c) for 40 minutes.

When the blondies are taken out of the over it is best to leave them sit for a few minute. Cut into 9 squares and serve warm with some nobó frozen goodness of your choice.
