These blondies are surprisingly healthy, inadvertently vegan and they can easily be made refined sugar free too. They’re also super quick and easy to make, requiring just one bowl and a handful of simple ingredients.

I love the contrasting flavours and textures in these blondies: think dense, fudgy, salty-sweet, peanut buttery blondies swirled with perfectly tart strawberry jam and topped with crunchy, salted roasted peanuts.

The blondies are easily made refined sugar free as you can buy a naturally sweetened strawberry or raspberry jamor use a homemade one – chia jam would work pretty well here I think!

The recipe for these Vegan Peanut Butter Jelly Blondies was featured as the winning entry for a competition held by The Guardian for after-school snack recipes. You can read the feature here

This is what the journalist Eve O’Sullivan said about them: “Rhian Williams’ peanut butter and jelly blondies look like the stuff of kids’ parties, but are actually low in sugar and can be dairy-free. You can change the jam to suit your child’s taste, use coconut oil and unrefined peanut butter, or even try it with a homemade spread.”

These blondies would be absolutely perfect for afternoon tea! If you’re looking for more similar recipes, check out my:
