Apple Spice Blondies (Dairy Free)

November 12, 2020

A deliciously healthy take on traditional blondies, somewhere in between a slice and cake.


180 g plant based Nuttelex butter

200 g light brown sugar

1 60g egg + 1 egg yolk

1 tsp vanilla essence

130 g plain/all-purpose flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

2 small red apples, cored, and chopped into small cubes

grated lemon & orange zest


1To dehydrated apples, either dehydrate in a dehydrator at 70°C or preheat oven at 100°C. Place cubed apples on baking tray lined with baking paper and place tray at the base of oven for 1 hour or till apples are dehydrated. Remove from oven and set aside.

2To make the blondies, whisk together plant based Nuttelex and sugar until smooth and combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla essence and whisk vigorously until smooth and combined. Fold in the flour, and spices until completely combined, then fold in the dehydrated apple cubes.

3Spread the batter evenly onto lined baking tray, and bake in preheated oven (180°C) for about 15 – 20 minutes, or until the centre is no longer jiggly and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Be careful not to over bake or blondies will dry out). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before inverting and removing the baking paper. Cut into squares.

4Serve with your fave dairy free cream or ice-cream and sprinkle some grated lemon & orange zest
