Jesus said, "Let there be calories" and these blondies descended from the Heavens and straight into my mouth. Chewy, gooey, cookie doughey goodness. Recipe modified from Party Vegan by Robin Robertson.
1/2 C margarine
1 C firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 C soymilk
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
1/4 t almond extract
1 1/2 C plus 2 T all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a square 8X8 inch baking pan.
Melt margarine in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add sugar, soymilk, and extracts and stir together. Pour into a mixing bowl to cool to room temp.
In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and walnuts. Stir in wet ingredients and mix until just combined. DO NOT OVERMIX OR THE BAKING GODS WILL SMITE YOU.
Pour batter into baking pan and spread evenly. Pop those suckers in the oven for 30-35 minutes (if you use a dark pan, cook for 2 minutes LESS) until outsides are golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean as a whistle.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Feed the ones you love.
