1 measuring cup of Silvana’s Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 bar of unsalted butter, melted and then allowed to cool

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg, at room temperature

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling


Before starting to bake, heat the oven to 350 degrees and coat an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a small bowl and whisk together.

Using a handheld electric mixer, in a large bowl mix the butter with the brown sugar until fluffy, then add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add the dry ingredients by stirring with a wooden spoon until combined. Finally, fold in the butterscotch chips and pecans.

Pour the batter into the pan and even out the surface. Sprinkle sea salt on top and bake for 35 minutes until golden brown. Allow the blondies to cool in the pan before flipping onto a plate or cutting board. Flip again, cut into squares, and serve.


Instructions for Freezing: Allow the blondies to cool completely before freezing. Slice them into squares and place them in a container with parchment paper between each layer. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, thaw them overnight in the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before serving.

Essential tools for this recipe include a 9-inch square baking pan, glass mixing bowls, a whisk, a rubber spatula, and a cooling rack. (Note: These are affiliate links.)

To make this recipe, it is recommended to either melt or brown the butter first. To brown the butter, slice it into pieces and put it in a light-colored skillet. Melt it over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until brown specks start to form at the bottom and it has a nutty aroma. Remove from heat immediately and let it cool for 5 minutes before using in the recipe. Browned butter is preferred for a richer flavor in these blondies.

Preferred Pan: The ideal choice is a 9-inch square pan. An 8-inch square pan is slightly undersized and may result in uneven cooking of blondies. For thinner blondies, the batter can be spread into a 9×13 inch pan. Ensure the batter is evenly spread to the edges of the pan. Baking time should be approximately 30 minutes.
