This coconut blondies recipe is deliciously moist and light. Baked with coconut flour, flavored with vanilla and desiccated coconut, this is a tasty cake.
Although a traditional blondie recipe uses brown sugar, I have used a sugar substitute. A blondie is simply a brownie but with no cocoa powder. You could add chocolate chips or chopped nuts to this recipe but I just wanted to keep it simple.
I wanted to make a trifle recipe but I didn’t want to use a chocolate sponge as so many of my recipes seem to be full of chocolate, particularly my brownies. I wanted the sponge for my trifle dessert to be brownie-like in texture, but had to be vanilla. I didn’t want a strong texture sponge but something a little bit softer. So, I adapted one of my coconut flour brownie recipes and a coconut blondie was baked.
This coconut blondies recipe was met with such a rapturous review from the Chief Taster that I made another batch once he had finished his last brownie. Normally I bake, then move onto the next recipe. It can be a while before I revisit a recipe so he got lucky that week. I also wanted to double check that the first batch of coconut blondies was not a one off. The second batch were just as moist and tasty.
