White Chocolate Orange Blondies

  • 2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal mixed with 4 Tbsp. water
  • ⅓ cup organic sugar
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated orange zest
  • 2-3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange extract (optional)
  • ¾ cup sorghum flour
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 6 oz. vegan white chocolate (about 1 ½ cups worth- depending on how large the chunks are)
  • ½ cup vegan margarine
  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F, and lightly grease a 9 inch or 8 x8 baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine prepared flaxseed meal, sugar, orange zest, and vanilla extract.
  3. In separate, smaller bowl, combine sorghum flour, almond flour, potato starch and xanthan gum and salt.
  4. Break the white chocolate into small chunks, and using a double boiler, melt the white chocolate and the margarine over medium low heat.
  5. You’re white chocolate and cocoa butter may become slightly separated at this point… whisk ’em together to make them once again homogeneous.
  6. Immediately combine melted white chocolate and margarine with the sugar and flaxseed mixture. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until all has been added.
  7. Your batter will be thick! Spread into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  8. The edges will be golden brown when they are ready to leave the oven. Let cool on wire rack until completely cool, then cut into squares.
