Blueberry White Chocolate Macadamia Blondies (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Brownies are usually my go to dessert of choice. I’ve made and eaten my fair share of all kinds of different types of brownies. What I’ve neglected in the process are blondies – brownie’s younger and underrated sibling.

Just as dense, moist and moreish as brownies, but flavoured with vanilla instead of cocoa and white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. I have created a chickpea blondie recipe in the past, but it has been literally years since I made a blondie recipe and I recently had a sudden urge to revisit this old friend.
