Easy Gluten-Free Blondies

These gluten-free blondies are rich & chewy and EASY to make! They're my go-to dessert when baking a treat for a crowd because they're portable and only take 1 bowl to prepare.
Based on a long-time family recipe, I've been making this recipe for years and it's always a favorite! These can easily be made dairy-free and nut free as well.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar 160 grams
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar 150 grams
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten-free 1:1 baking flour 160 grams
  • ½ cup blanched almond flour 56 grams (or ⅓ cup more gluten-free flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped pecans optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. I like using a light metal pan for this recipe.
  • In a large mixing bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix on medium-high for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • Pour in the gluten-free flour, almond flour, gluten-free baking powder and salt. Mix on low speed until totally combined and no dry streaks are left. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans if using.
  • Spread the blondies batter into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool before slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

RECIPE TIPS
  • Make it nut-free: The almond flour gives these blondies a great chewy texture, but you can swap it out and add an additional ⅓ cup gluten-free 1:1 baking flour to make the recipe nut-free.
  • Make it dairy-free: Use vegan butter and 2 cups of dairy-free chocolate chips and in place of the semi-sweet and white chocolate chips to make this recipe dairy-free.
  • Other add-ins: You're welcome to add ½ cup chopped pecans to this gluten-free blondies recipe, if you'd like. Or you can swap the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips. Feel free to get creative!
