No Meat Zone Recipes: Vegan Blondies

Have you seen these Eat for Life Mega Chunks? They are perfect for my out-of-this-world blondies. The macadamia nuts are my favorite part though!

2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup vegan cane sugar
1/2 cup vegan brown sugar
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup sunflower oil
2 flax eggs (1 flax egg = 1 tablespoon ground flax powder + 3 tablespoons water)
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup vegan chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350. Roughly chop the macadamia nuts and set aside.

Sift flour in a big mixing bowl and add baking powder, vanilla powder, salt, baking soda and sugars. Mix with a fork. Add the macadamia nuts and chocolate chunks and mix well to cover. Add the coconut milk, sunflower oil and flax eggs. Mix really well until a dough forms.

Turn mixture out into 9x9 baking pan and spread out with a spatula until the pan is filled.

Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost dry. Let the blondies cool and then cut into squares. Enjoy!
