Im very proud of myself. Today i set out to create my very own ORIGINAL RECIPE. I had blondies on the brain and wanted to find a way to healthify them a little. I decided the best way to go about it was to just get in the kitchen and make them myself!
Sarahs VEGAN maple pumpkin squares:
Preheat oven to 350*
1/2 cup whole wheat four
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 TBSP ground flax
sprinkle of: cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice
4 TBSP margarine
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1 Flax egg ( 1 tbsp flax mixed with 3 tbsp water)
1 TBSP maple syrup
1/2 cup mix of white chocolate and milk chocolate chips
Lets get to it!
Fist mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk away until combined. Set Aside
Get out your mixer and combine the margarine and the applesauce. It wont combine very well but continue on anyway. Then add flax egg and vanilla. mix some MOREEEE add both sugars and maple syrup. mix mix mix. It will look HORRIBLE and GROSS and you WILL think your failing(because i did!) But your not!
Mix the dry into the wet and mix mix mix. Not it will look and TASTE incredible! Stir in the chocolate! mmm
I like them thick so i used a 7X7 baking pan and poured the batter in. The consistency is like a thick cake batter and a thin cookie dough.
Pop it in the oven for 40 minutes. It will still be gooey in the center and a little crispy on the edges. if you want it a little firmer in the middle add about 5 extra minutes!
and there you have it! The final result ended up fantastic, they are delicious and addicting! They are more of a banana bread texture then a blondie but i think im ok with that, especially for it being from my head!
They are so beautiful 🙂
