Vegan Peanut Butter Jelly Blondies

Not only are these healthy blondies low sugar and vegan, they’re also super quick and easy to make, requiring just one bowl and very simple ingredients.

They’re also incredibly delicious – think dense and fudgy peanut butter-flavoured blondies swirled with sweet strawberry jam and topped with crunchy and salted roasted peanuts.

I replaced normal butter with peanut butter to make this recipe vegan and they’re also low sugar because the strawberry jam is already sweet – to make it free from refined sugar, you could buy jam that’s been naturally sweetened or use a homemade one. 

If you try out this recipe or anything else from my blog, I’d love for you to take a photo and tag it #rhiansrecipes on Instagram! It would really make my day to see what you come up with!
