Who says healthy can’t be fun? These gorgeous Brown Sugar Blondies are easy to whip up and bake like a charm. They come out with a crispy top, gooey center, and tons of insanely delicious brown sugar flavor. I added a kick of Mapeline, which is a maple extract that is way better than the usual maple extract. You can sometimes find it near the spices in grocery stores, though not all have it. I’ve found it at Walmart (when I can drag myself into the place), and happen upon it every now and then in the syrup section of some grocers. If you can’t find it, feel free to leave the Mapeline out, but by all means, make this recipe regardless! We served our blondies in bowls, drenched in Silk soymilk and the kids couldn’t get enough. And by kids, I mean me.


1/3 cup Earth Balance OR coconut oil, softened
6 ounces coconut milk or Silk soy yogurt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Mexican vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Mapeline maple-flavored extract (if you can’t find mapeline, just omit this)
2 cups white flour, spelt flour, or whole wheat pastry flour
8 ounces dairy-free chocolate chips


In a metal stand mixer, beat together the Earth Balance, yogurt, and brown sugar until very well mixed. Add the baking powder, salt, vanilla, and Mapeline. Mix in the flour just until mixed, add the chocolate chips, press into a lightly greased 9x9 baking dish, top with sprinkles, then bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges of light golden brown.

Serve hot slices in bowls with Original Silk soymilk poured over the top of the blondie. Grab a spoon and enjoy!
