Last night Marc, Marie and sweet Aiden came for dinner and I wanted to make something a little different for dessert. My Praline Buttercream sounded really good, but I didn't have a lot of time to bake and ice a cake or cupcakes. Instead I made the ingredients for Praline Buttercream the basis of a pan of quick and easy blondies.
Creaming together the butter, coconut sugar and vanilla powder I simply added a cup of Moon Rabbit Foods Cassava Flour, eggs and a dash of salt, then some chopped pecans and mini chocolate chips for good measure were stirred in. Super simple to whip up, quick to bake and so delicious.
The combination of coconut sugar and butter gives these blondies that amazing praline flavor so easily. Cassava flour provides a mild flavor and wonderful texture. No gluten free gums are necessary at all. The bars cut beautifully even when warm. Gluten free doesn't have to be hard and you don't need a bunch of different flours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and have a 9x13 pan ready (no greasing necessary)
1 cup Butter (I use Kerrygold)
1 3/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Powder
When well mixed, add:
1 cup Cassava Flour (I use Moon Rabbit Foods)
3 large Eggs
1/2 cup Raw Pecans, chopped
1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
pinch Sea Salt
Spread into 9x13 pan. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool and enjoy!
