Dirty Chai Blondies
These Dirty Chai Blondies are vegan-friendly and made with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and drizzled with a quick espresso glaze for the ultimate dessert recipe.
Servings: 16 blondies
for the blondies:
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter dairy free
- 1/3 cup cane sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 2.5 tablespoon water)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
for the glaze:
- 1 tablespoon espresso powder or instant coffee
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoon dairy free milk
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8x8 baking dish or line it with parchment paper then set aside.
Cream butter, cane sugar and brown sugar together for 1 minute; then, add the flax egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
To that same bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt and stir until the batter comes together (be patient, this might take a minute).
Scoop the batter into the baking pan and use a rubber spatula or your hands to press it into the baking pan. Bake the blondies for 16-18 minutes, or until the edges have set and a toothpick comes out clean. Immediately transfer the baking pan to a cooling rack and allow the bars to cool in the pan completely.
Once the blondies have cooled to room temperature, add the glaze. Whisk all glaze ingredients together, then use a spoon to drizzle it over top. Enjoy!
