Cooking Time



For the Blondies:

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecan

For the Coconut Caramel:

  • One 15 ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper. To a large bowl, whisk together flaxseed meal and water. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. To the same bowl, add peanut butter, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until creamy. Add flours, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until a thick batter forms. Fold in apple and pecans. Spread batter evenly into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. While blondies are baking, prepare the caramel sauce. To a small saucepan, add coconut milk and coconut sugar. Whisk until combined. Bring mixture to a low boil, then reduce to simmer for 8-10 minutes until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon.
  4. Take off heat and stir in flaky sea salt.
  5. Allow blondies to cool for 10 minutes before slicing into 12 bars and drizzling with caramel sauce.
