Whoo that feels good to get that off my chest. But now for the recipe. I'm doing an experiment for biology where I have to transform traditional blondies into vegan blondies. I made up this recipe using my knowledge of fats, proteins, and all of that other stuff. haha I really, really, really like these and so did everyone at the party. They kind of taste like marzipan (that almond sugar candy) and have the consistency of fudge. They do have a weird glossiness to them, but hey, it was my first experiment. I don't even know if I can consider them blondies, but that's what I'm callin them!
Here's the recipe:
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup organic cane sugar
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ cup brown rice syrup
½ tsp almond extract
1 tbsp Ener-G egg replacer + 3 tbsp water
¼ tsp baking powder
1 cup whole wheat flour
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ cup pecans, chopped
¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup vegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 in pan with Canola Oil cooking spray.
Mix applesauce, canola oil, cane sugar, maple syrup, and brown rice syrup in a stand mixer. Beat until smooth. Combine Ener-G egg replacer in a cup with 3 tbsp water. Stir and let sit for 2 minutes. Add Ener-G egg replacer and almond extract to the other mixed ingredients. Blend. Add in baking powder, flour, and sea salt. Stir, not beat, until well-combined. Add pecans, shredded coconut, and chocolate chips and stir.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 25-27 minutes and allow time to cool before cutting.
