Right first things first when I say Sugar Free Blondies as I pointed out to my husband I have not used sugar in the recipe at all but I have used white chocolate which does contain sugar and calories so there is some sugar in the recipe. Sorry for that misunderstanding. I am going to change the recipe title to White Chocolate Blondies (sugar free). Difficult one to explain but as you can see from the recipe there is no sugar used. The original recipe would have used less flour, the same amount of chocolate, double the amount of soft spread and the same amount of eggs. To reduce the sugar content further you could remove the chocolate decorations and serve the Blondies plain. I like these Blondies as they are not over sweet, a lovely dense like texture but still light and airy. Perfect treat for the children.
I have already shared the video of the recipe on my Youtube Channel but I have called it “Sugar Free Blondies” so I will need to change that title soon. A couple of parts of the video are a bit shaky but I am sure you will get the idea of it. The music is courtesy of my husband who has actually given his wee tune a name this time “Spring is coming”. He made the tune up to match the video and I think it is quite a good fit. My next video will be a savoury dish which I will try and film soon as the editing and adding music to the video takes quite a bit of time. Watching the video I think i need to invest in some lighting so I can stop the shadows which I can see. I really have just picked myself apart here – sorry about that.

Now I have called them White Chocolate Blondies and the internet or rather “Wikipedia” states that “A blondie is a rich, sweet dessert bar. It resembles the traditional chocolate brownie, but substitutes vanilla for the cocoa used in brownies, and contains brown sugar“. However, my Brownies sometime contain only cocoa and sometimes contain chocolate and cocoa, so I don’t agree with this, and my recipe is my own take on Blondies. I am sorry if I have upset anyone but from experience I have tried many different recipes over the years and these ones are the best. The top turns crunchy due to the white chocolate in the recipe. The self raising flour combines with the eggs, soft spread and sugars in the white chocolate to form a dense brownie textured bake. Just give the recipe a try and let me know what you think?
Maybe I will bake the Brownies without the sugar and just use chocolate instead and see what they turn out like too. I will definitely be trying out this White Chocolate Blondie recipe using gluten free flour in the future.
