But we are not making the traditional blondie. Nope, today we are going to be making ombre blondies — and not just any ombre blondies (’cause that would probably be too normal) — we are talking about pink ombre blondies!! If that isn’t the cutest little idea for Valentine’s Day, then I don’t know what is.
Best of all, this recipe is super easy to follow, so even if you are a complete baking disaster you can rest assured your pink ombre blondies are going to come out super delicious. You also don’t need a ton of tools or a ton of ingredients, making it small kitchen approved, (Please tell me that I’m not the only one with a kitchen that has the size of a tiny closet!)
I also love the fact that you can make them match your dietary needs, so if you follow a gluten-free lifestyle just swap the flour for a cup for cup gluten free baking mix. The same goes if you are vegan, you just need to change the butter for oil and substitute the egg for a flax seed egg. I’ve made it in all the ways (traditional, gluten free, and even vegan) and all of them came out perfectly and delicious.
