it’s almost the weekend!! let’s celebrate with the best ever Vegan Chocolate Chip Caramel Blondies. they’re fudgy, perfectly sweet and made with the best ingredients including Endangered Species Chocolate!
thank you so much to Endangered Species Chocolate for sponsoring this post! all opinions and recipes are my own.
ok, i received so many messages asking for this recipe after i posted a teaser for Vegan Chocolate Chip Caramel Blondies on my IG stories. sorry to keep you waiting, i know they look so dang good.
as you likely know if you have been following me, my love for Endangered Species Chocolate runs really deep. their chocolate and mission to give back to endangered wildlife are everything.
ESC helps to support species, habitat, and humanity across the globe by donating 10% of their annual net profits to conservation organizations!
ESC would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your partner, friends or family. honestly, it’s the way my heart and my husband’s too, so if you know someone has a sweet tooth, ESC is it!
oooo the base is made up of so many goodies and then i cut one Tart Raspberries + Dark Chocolate bar into small pieces and folded it in.
baked to flippin’ perfection because after i cut into the blondies, they were beyond fudgy.
the batter is a bit sticky fyi, so when you’re adding it to a baking pan, just use a wet spoon or spatula to help evenly distribute it to the corners. trust me, this is worth the tiny tiny hassle of v sticky batter.
that caramel…..dang. it’s actually made from DATES! how cool is that?! i just soak them in hot water for like 20 minutes, remove the outer skin, take out the pit and add the dates to a food processor with some other ingredients.
you only need dates, coconut oil and then some almond milk to make the caramel sauce, it’s just that easy.
ok, half of the blondies may or may not be gone already….so obviously going to have to make another batch for Valentine’s Day.
Al got home and three were sitting on the counter (after i had already eaten two lol) and was like omg what is this masterpiece?!? the excitement was real guys.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Caramel BlondiesCourse: Bars, DessertsDifficulty: Easy
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup oat flour
2 tsp organic cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup creamy and runny almond butter- very important it’s runny, i used trader joe’s
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 bar Endangered Species Chocolate cut into very small pieces
5 pitted large medjool dates soaked in hot water, drained and with outer skin removed
1 tbsp liquid coconut oil
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- mix the blondie ingredients excluding the chocolate pieces in a bowl until a thick and sticky batter forms. then, fold in the dark chocolate.
- add to a parchment lined 8 x 8 baking pan and evenly distribute the batter. the batter is a bit sticky fyi, so when you’re adding it to the baking pan, just use a wet spoon or spatula to help evenly spread it to the corners.
- bake at 350 for 22 minutes. then, let the blondies cool completely, at least 30 minutes, which is IMPORTANT so they set and stay together.
- blend the caramel ingredients in a food processor until a thick consistency and spread on top of the blondies. store in an airtight container and enjoy!
