Ingredients

  • 1 cup Silvana's Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • 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

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable oil spray. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder, salt and baking soda.

  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the butter with the brown sugar at medium speed until fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Fold in the butterscotch chips and pecans.

  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 35 minutes, until the top is shiny and golden brown. Let the blondies cool in the pan, then invert onto a plate or cutting board. Invert again, then cut into squares and serve.

Make Ahead

The blondies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container overnight.
