December is a month for catching up with family and friends. I always have so many people popping in and out of my house and I love to be able to offer them a little hot chocolate and vegan treat. I love recipes that are minimum effort for maximum reward. The ones I am sharing with you today are all very quick and simple to make but taste amazing and look pretty damn impressive on display. It also helps that when you’re making them they fill the house with amazing christmassy smells (especially when the blondies are baking in the oven – oh my goodness its heaven!). All three recipes are made using Eat Real Today products. They have such an extensive selection of products and are the very best in terms of quality and sustainable sourcing. You can check out their range on their website!
Cinnamon Spiced Blondies

- Line & grease an 8×8 oven proof tin.
- In a mixing bowl beat together the coconut sugar, coconut oil, and peanut butter until smooth.
- Fold in the flour.
- Pour in almond milk & stir until smooth.
- Fold in the vegan chocolate chips.
- Pour the batter into tin and bake for around 25-30 minutes.
- Cool in tin completely (they will firm up more during cooling!)
- Cut into squares, remove from the tin and enjoy!
