  • 3 large apples diced
  • 250 g almond flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon

Date Caramel

  • 90 g pitted dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 ml plant milk


  • For the caramel, heat the milk to just before boiling point then add to a bowl along with the dates and vanilla extract.
  • Cover with a plate and allow to soak for 1 hour.
  • Add to a blender and blitz until smooth and no bits remain.
  • In a saucepan, cook the apples with a dash of water for around 10 minutes until tender and leave aside.
  • For the blondies, preheat oven to 180°C.
  • In a bowl, combine almond flour, coconut sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add the water and mix into a smooth dough.
  • Fold in the cooked apples.
  • Press into a 20cm square baking tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool, drizzle the caramel over the top and serve.


  • Almond flour can be subbed with coconut flour in a 50/50 mix. Oat flour can also be used, but should be in combination with another flour to retain a moist, chewy texture. If you are not gluten-free then other flours such as wheat can also be used instead.
  • Apples can be omitted or replaced with nuts, chocolate chips or dried fruit.
