gluten free blondies

Blondies worked!  These are not vegan but they are gluten free and the gluten free flours I used were whole grain.  I started with the blondie recipe from Smitten Kitchen.  I liked how few ingredients there were.  I find that I have the best luck with changing something to gluten free when the recipe is simpler.  My Beloved likes the protein count in these as well.  The flours add a bit.


1/2 cup melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon ground flax (as fine as possible)

1 tablespoon boiling water

1/4 cup arrowroot flour

1/4 cup almond flour

1/4 cup brown rice flour

1/4 cup sorghum flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Butter and "flour" a 8 by 8 inch pan.

Mix the butter and brown sugar together.   Really cream well.  Mix in the egg and vanilla.  Mix the flax and boiling water together in a small bowl.  Add to the sugar and butter mixture.

Add all the flours, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.  Mix well.  Pour into the prepared pan.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.  

Cool if possible!  They will come out of the pan easier.

These were good.  Not too overwhelmingly sweet but I think a bit of that is the whole grains.  I think they are lovely.  My Beloved makes them disappear.  It will be interesting to see how long they last (grin)
