This dessert is a classic, is so easy to make and will have you going back for more! The bonus is that they are free of most allergens and vegan too.



For the Wet Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sunflower seed butter (or other nut or seed butter – natural and runnier)
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter (or coconut oil)
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. flax meal
  • 5 Tbsp. water
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

For the Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup gluten free flour (King Arthurs or Cup 4 Cup work well)
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (1/2 cup in the batter and ¼ cup on top of the mixture)
  • 1/2 tsp. Maldon flaked salt (optional)



  1. Mix together the flax meal with the water to make “flax eggs”. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. Melt the butter/coconut oil and add it to a large mixing bowl with the other wet ingredients. Stir everything together well to ensure the sugars are combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the same bowl. Add in ½ cup of the chocolate chips to the batter and reserve the rest to top the bars before baking. Stir well.
  5. Transfer the batter to the lined baking pan. Sprinkle some extra chocolate chips over the top of the bars. Sprinkle a little Maldon salt flakes on top too, if you like (optional).
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Use a toothpick to see how done the blondies are. The toothpick should come out clean. This usually takes 25 minutes but can vary based on your oven.


  • Enjoy Life brand of chocolate chips is free of most common allergens and easily found.
  • If you aren’t eating vegan and can tolerate eggs, you could use 2 eggs in place of the flax meal and water “flax egg”.
