Vegan Mofo 11: Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies. Sugar-free.

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Blondie from An Unrefined Vegan

We’re more than halfway through this thing, kids!  Are you still with me?  

The original for this PB & J take on a the classic blondie appeared at Number 12 on 29 Ways to Honor the Glory of Peanut Butter & Jelly with a mouthwatering recipe from Averie Cooks.  I did the vegan thing on it and used dates instead of sugar.

  1. 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  2. 1/4 coconut flour
  3. 1 tsp. baking powder
  4. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  5. pinch salt
  6. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  7. 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  8. 1/4 cup creamy or chunky natural peanut butter
  9. 4 oz. unsweetened applesauce
  10. 3/4 cup nut milk
  11. 1 cup dates, soaked, drained, and chopped
  12. 1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
  13. 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  14. 1/4 cup seedless blackberry (or other) fruit-sweetened jam
  1. Lightly spray a 9"x9" pan, line with parchment and lightly spray again. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, combine the coconut oil, 1/4 cup peanut butter, applesauce, nut milk, and dates. Process until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender to make sure the ingredients are all nicely incorporated.
  4. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to combine - adding more nut milk or water if the batter seems to thick. Stir in the chopped peanuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread so that it reaches the sides and is even. Drop peanut butter and jelly by the tablespoonful onto the top of the batter and then run a knife through, creating a marbled effect.
  5. Bake the blondies for about 25 minutes - don't over bake. Let them cool in the pan and then remove and cut into pieces.

    These look like they’d be a lovely accompaniment to my morning tea. I’m puzzled by the word ‘blondies’ though, I’ve never heard of the word in connection with a sweet treat, where does it come from, do you know?
