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!
