Vegan Butter - Use a nut butter or any other vegan butter option you like. Make sure it is at room temperature.
Water - Hot water helps melt the butter and dissolve the sugar easily.
Oat Milk - Or any other vegan milk option at room temperature.
Light Brown Sugar - It gives a slightly warm flavor and a lightly crispy surface to the blondie. Use white sugar to make it crispier.
Vanilla Extract - Make sure you use high-quality vanilla extract for the best flavor.
Orange Zest - It adds a freshness to the blondie and cuts through the sweetness of the sugar and richness of the butter.
All-purpose Flour - It gives the best blondie consistency.
Shredded Coconut - Unsweetened shredded coconut adds chewiness to the blondie. Use desiccated coconut if you want the blondie to be less chewy.
Dark Chocolate Chips - Vegan chocolate chips add richness and indulgence to the blondies. Add more or less depending on your preference.
Mix the wet ingredients. In a bowl, mix vegan butter, sugar, water, and oat milk followed by vanilla and orange zest.
Add the dry ingredients. Now add flour, salt, and shredded coconut. Mix into a smooth batter.
Bake it. Pour the batter into a prepped 9-inch square baking tin. Bake at 180°C (356°F) for 20-25 minutes. Let it cool and serve.
Expert Tips and Tricks
Make it richer. Use peanut butter instead of regular vegan butter to make the blondie richer and denser.
Add more texture. Add some chopped walnuts, pecans, or any other nuts you like. It gives the blondie a crunchy texture.
Add fresh berries. Make the blondies bright in color and fresh in flavor by adding raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries.
Let it cool completely. It’s difficult to wait, but you’ll be able to cut it neatly once the blondie cools down.
Use a sharp knife. I recommend cutting blondie bars with a sharp, non-serrated knife. Blondies are easier to cut neatly than brownies, but make sure to wipe the knife clean between cuts for perfect edges.

What makes these blondies chewy?
Much like a brownie, blondies are made with brown sugar which adds a chewy texture. In addition, the shredded coconut also adds extra chewiness to the blondies.
How do you store these Vegan Chocolate and Coconut Blondie?
Store the completely cooled blondies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. But I doubt they’ll last this long given how tasty they are.
Can I freeze these blondies?
Absolutely. First, bake and completely cool the blondies. Then wrap the blondies in plastic wrap or place them in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag. You can store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
