Again a recipe that I did for a fest long time back. Blondie, a kin of brownie is equally delicious n has a distinct set of lovers. Esp. there r people who don’t like brownies but goes for blondies. It’s all to do with the lighter caramel flavour of the blondie that it gets from the brown sugar.

This is an eggless version of Lemony Walnut blondie n uses Flax seeds(a.k.a. Flax egg) to compensate the lack of eggs. Ground flax seeds when soaked in water becomes gelatinous n gives body to the blondie similar to wat is imparted by the eggs. This also works beautifully for brownies, fudges, Brookies n all those desserts that r a bit on the denser side. I have tried these in cakes but was not satisfied with the end product as they turned out heavier than normal cakes. So let’s leave cakes for now n make blondies…?
