This recipe uses a “flax egg”, an egg substitute made from flax seed and oat milk, but if you’re not vegan you can use 2 eggs as a substitute.
You can use light brown sugar rather than dark brown sugar – this will give a slightly less intense taste.
How to Store Blondies
The best way to store blondies is in an air tight container at room temperature. The blondies will stay fresh for about 1 week but if your house is anything like mine, they won’t last that long because they are delicious!
