Pistachio Blondies are so, so good but when they are Gluten Free almost everyone can enjoy them making them even better!
Hello (toasted) Pistachio
I am going to be fully transparent with you, it took me a couple of tries to get these blondies right. To get them to that perfect, slightly ooey gooey goodness.
As with most gluten free recipes, the blondies were a little too dry the first go around, and then the 2nd one wouldn’t set up enough and then finally on the 3rd try we finally got there. These blondies have a beautiful golden crust, each bite is filled with tons of pistachios and hints of white chocolate, and then topped with even more of each.
To really take these blondies to the next level, I did toast the pistachios just to add that extra something, but you don’t have too… that is up to you, but I highly recommend it.
Hello White Chocolate
One of the classic combos in baking is white chocolate & pistachios, like my White Chocolate Pistachio Cookies. There is just something so perfect about the sweet white chocolate and the super nutty, slightly salty bite of the pistachio. Even more so in these blondies.
To make these blondies the perfect texture I reduced the amount of flour, and added in more pistachios to add the needed volume. In turn I added in a bit more white chocolate to help balance out the nuttiness. If white chocolate is not your jam, (yes I just said jam) that is ok, you can use semi sweet or dark chocolate. Personally I think a combo of all 3 would be amazing!!
Let’s talk flour
Real quick, my go to gluten free flour is this Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Flour. It truly bakes the most like all-purpose flour that I have found. I typically use it as a 1 to 1 ratio, and it works great.
