Gluten free Toasted Coconut Blondie Brownies-

We needed a good recipe that not only Abby would enjoy, but company would enjoy-

This is a new favorite!

I substituted coconut oil for the butter-

Used homemade baking powder to avoid corn. Used our own gluten free flour to avoid corn.

Truly easy and delicious!

I added a heaping teaspoon of ginger powder as well for extra spicy.

Next time Abby and I think we will use the ginger syrup and some lemon with her corn free powdered sugar to make a sweet glaze instead of the coconut on top- though toasted coconut on top was really delicious too!

Thank you Tropical Traditions for this great recipe!

Ahhh....the recipe you've all been waiting for. Well, maybe not all of you but some of you for sure.

When I posted the first Toasted Coconut Ginger Blondies recipe I promised a gluten free version. So here it is. I was very happy at how they turned out; creamy and moist with a nice chewy texture and toasty crunch from the toasted coconut on top. My mouth is full of said blondies as I type. Seriously.

You can use something else instead of ginger (like chocolate chips or nuts).But that's up to you. I just wanted to get rid of the rest of our candied ginger, so in they went.

Were you waiting for this recipe? Are you going to make it now? Tell me, I'd love to hear from you!
