Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 12

Blondies don’t seem to be as much of a thing here as they are in the US but I simply don’t know why. They’re the perfect treat to whip up at a moment’s notice with stuff you probably already have in your kitchen. I added jam (or jelly) to this one to add a little extra somethin’ somethin’ but you can leave it out and they’ll be just as awesome.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a 10″x10″ baking tin.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream the brown sugar and margarine.
  3. Add the peanut butter, vanilla and almond milk and blend before sifting in the flour and baking powder.
  4. Continue to mix until a dough is formed.
  5. Press the mixture evenly into the pan and spread the jam on top.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool completely in the pan before slicing and serving.
