Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies

Hello

It is so exciting finally seeing the sun and perfect timing for me as I’m on a family holiday in the Lake District.  This is my eight month old neice’s first holiday and she is amazed by it all.  She went on a little boat trip at the beautiful lake and park at Keswick.

Find of the holiday for me was the gluten and dairy free beer battered fish and chips at Dockray Halls in Penrith – outstanding.

As my regular followers will know – I love peanut butter.  If you agree with me then these peanut butter and jelly blondies will appeal to you.  Sticky peanut bars topped with sharp raspberries – the perfect combination.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Pie Blondies

Hello

Stuck at home because of the snow?  Try baking these gluten and dairy free apple pie blondies as a little treat.  These blondies have lovely warming spices with soft chunks of caramelised apple mixed in.  The smell is amazing when these are cooking in the oven – they also taste great heated slightly with a scoop of dairy free ice cream.

Hope everyone has stayed safe during this snow storm.  While not as bad as some places we were on a red snow warning for a couple of days and the snow is about knee deep in the back garden.  Fingers crossed everything gets back to normal business soon.

Enjoy!
