I am definitely a chocolate lover. But sometimes I like to go blond instead of brown 🙂 I made a new batch of blondies this morning.
They are soaked and gluten free, so they are easy on the tummy. And they are soft and delicious!
The other great thing about them is that they are really easy to make. I experimented today and made them in my food processor.
It worked great! I added the flour and soaking liquid last night. Then this morning I just added the remaining ingredients, turned on the fp for a minute and my batter was done. Simple. You can also do it with a stand mixer or with a hand mixer or even by hand (it just takes a little more time and muscle by hand).
I did add some mini chocolate chips to give a subtle chocolate flavor. But you could make these without the chips.
How about you…are you a brownie or a blondie person?
