Maple Chai Blondies

Blondies are a delicious, sweet treat that have been around since the 19th century. Since then they’ve gone through many different variations, with the current iteration being what’s called an American Blonde Brownie-which is made up of applesauce and brown sugar in addition to flour, butter or shortening, eggs and vanilla extract. Maple Chai Blondies are just one more variation on this theme: these ones add maple syrup for sweetness along with ground chia seeds for texture.

The “greyston bakery blondie recipe” is a sweet and gooey treat that is sure to please any chocoholic.

These chewy maple chai blondies are perfectly spiced and finished with a salty-sweet maple glaze you’ll want to spread over everything. This chai blondie recipe is the best quick treat to celebrate warm autumn tastes, and it’s made in just one dish (no mixer necessary!).

Blondies with Maple Chai

NOW IS THE TIME TO DROP EVERYTHING. It’s officially baking season in the autumn! I don’t know about you, but as soon as September arrives, I toss s’mores and fruit pies out the window and dive headfirst into pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls, and allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

And chai may be the most underappreciated autumn taste. CHAI IS MY FAVORITE. I was hooked from the first taste of chai tea. The warmth of cinnamon, the pucker of ginger, creamy nutmeg, and that flowery cardamom swirled over my palate like a symphony in my tongue.

What are maple chai blondies, exactly?

Allow me to tell you something. Since the first time I bit into one of these bad boys, I’ve been looking forward to writing this piece. These maple syrup-flavored chai spiced blondies are packed with the ideal balance of chai spices and studded with toasted walnuts for texture.

Finish them off with a delicious salted maple glaze and a hot cup of chai (ALDI’s Simply Nature Dirty Chai Tea Latte is *chef’s kiss*), and you’ve got yourself the perfect cozy autumn treat.

Maple chai blondies ingredients

The great thing about blondies is that they’re quite simple to make. There are no mixers, sophisticated culinary tools, or complicated procedures in this recipe. So, despite the fact that you’ll need a few additional ingredients, this recipe is really rather straightforward.

While 16 items may seem to be a lot, gathering them all in one spot can make supermarket shopping a snap. Everything you’ll need for these bad boys can be found at your local ALDI. ALDI provides everything you need, from high-quality butter to warm spices to 100 percent pure maple syrup, at affordable costs.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Creamery in the Countryside Unsalted Butter: I devour this butter like it’s no big deal. It’s rich, creamy, and ideal for all baked items.
  • Baker’s Corner Light Brown Sugar: Brown sugar gives your blondies a richer, molasses taste while also keeping them chewy.
  • 100 percent Pure Maple Syrup, Hand-Selected: Any maple treat needs some REAL maple syrup in it. Both the blondies and the maple glaze will be made using this high-quality pure maple syrup.
  • 1 egg will provide structure to your blondies without making them overly cakey.
  • Vanilla Extract: A little amount of vanilla extract may make a big difference. To smooth out the taste, vanilla pairs nicely with maple syrup.
  • All-Purpose Flour from Bakers Corner: All-purpose flour gives your maple chai blondies a delicate, sensitive crumb. When measuring flour, be careful to fluff it up and scoop it into your measuring cup to avoid overestimating.
  • Spices for Chai: You may use whatever chai spice blend you choose, but we like to create our own using ground cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, and black pepper.
  • Baking Powder: Adding a pinch of baking powder to your blondies will help them rise while keeping their fudgy texture.
  • Chopped Walnuts from Southern Grove: I like adding texture to blondies. Southern Grove Cut Walnuts are great since they’re already chopped up into the proper size bits to mix straight in.
  • To keep that salted maple glaze thick and flavorful, use only a dab of Countryside Creamery Heavy Cream. If you don’t have any cream on hand, milk can suffice!
  • Salt will reduce the maple’s sweetness and provide the most delectable, subtle taste. It’s important to remember!

Advice on how to make the greatest chewy maple chai blondies

Blondies are one of the most simple and uncomplicated homemade desserts, but even the most seasoned bakers may benefit from a little additional attention to a few tips that will ensure soft, chewy maple chair blondies every time.

  • Do not overmix: Blondie batter should NEVER be overmixed. When you mix your batter, gluten develops, which might result in a tough or doughy blondie–not what you want. Only stir until the batter is well combined. This will keep the crumb moist and soft.
  • Use good vanilla and butter: Just as the cocoa in brownies can make or break the chocolate taste, the butter and vanilla extract in blondies are crucial. You get the greatest results, be sure to use high-quality butter and genuine vanilla essence. Fortunately, ALDI’s baking ingredients are top-notch, so you can get all of your supplies in one place!
  • Toast the nuts: It takes a bit more effort, but toasting the nuts brings out all of the nutty taste. To toast your nuts, lay them out on a baking sheet coated with parchment paper or in a sauce pan, stirring occasionally to keep them from burning.
  • Do not overbake: “A sad, dry blondie is an overbaked blondie,” repeat after me. When you take the blondies out of the oven, they should still be little underbaked in the centre. As they cool, they will continue to bake, providing you with a nicely cooked, soft delight.
  • Don’t forget about the glazing: Anything with a maple glaze gets my vote. That baked product is going to knock your socks off, to say the least.

When your maple chai blondies are done, check the following:

Overbaked baked products, in my opinion, are one of the worst things you can eat. Ever. As a result, inputting the bake time for recipes is usually my least favorite aspect of the process. Every oven is unique, and some pans bake faster than others. It breaks my heart to think that you’d ever receive a dry, overbaked blondie from me. It’s the kind of thing that keeps me up at night. It’s especially crucial to keep an eye on recipes that just won’t taste as delicious if they’re overbaked.

These chai blondies should be taken out of the oven when the sides are golden brown and the centre has puffed up, but the center of the pan should still remain uncooked. This took around 35 minutes for us, but since every oven is different, you should start monitoring them at 30 minutes and keep an eye on them from then.

Friends, have a wonderful autumn baking season! Enjoy.

Ingredients

To make the Maple Blondies, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl

  • Countryside Creamery, 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (brown)
  • 2 Tablespoons 100% Pure Maple Syrup (Specially Selected)
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 1 teaspoon extract de vanille
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour from Baker’s Corner
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • a half teaspoon of ginger
  • a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • baking powder (1/2 teaspoon)
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup toasted and chopped Southern Grove Walnuts

Maple Glaze Directions

  • a half-cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons 100% Pure Maple Syrup (Specially Selected)
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream (or milk)
  • a sprinkle of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside a 9 × 9 pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the melted butter, maple syrup, and brown sugar in a large mixing basin. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract well.
  3. Combine the baking powder, spices, salt, and flour in a separate basin. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones until barely combined and no flour clumps remain. Toss in the roasted nuts and mix well. Don’t overmix the ingredients.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out evenly.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the blondies are golden brown, firm around the edges, and puffy. The center will still be uncooked, but as they cool, they will begin to cook!
  6. Make the glaze while the blondies are cooling. In a mixing dish, combine the powdered sugar, maple syrup, heavy cream or milk, and salt. Mix everything together with a whisk until it’s smooth and there are no lumps of sugar left.
  7. Allow the glaze to dry before cutting the blondies into 9 squares for large blondies or 16 squares for smaller servings. Enjoy!
