Gluten-free all purpose flour: A blend with or without xanthan gum will work in this recipe. If not gluten-free, regular flour will work, too.
Tapioca flour: Tapioca flour is also known as tapioca starch and it adds some lovely chewiness and airiness to the dough. If you need to replace it, you can swap it out for more all-purpose flour instead.
Earth Echo Chai Bliss: Earth Echo Chai Bliss adds the perfect amount of chai flavor to this recipe.
Baking soda: This adds rise and browning power to the recipe.
Salt: Salt enhances all of the flavors in this recipe.
Maple syrup: If not vegan, you can swap the maple syrup for honey if you prefer.
Coconut oil: You can replace the coconut oil with any oil you prefer, and if not vegan you can swap for melted butter instead.
Flax egg: You can mix one tablespoon of ground flax seed with three tablespoons of water to make a flax egg. If you do not have ground flax seed on hand, you can make a chia egg using the same ratios, or if not vegan, replace the flax egg with one regular egg instead.
Vanilla extract: The addition of vanilla really enhances the sweet flavors in this recipe, but if you do have any on hand, you can omit it for a still-tasty recipe.
Coconut chips: These large bits of dried coconut toast in the oven resulting in a delightful crunch throughout these blondies. If you do not have any coconut chips, you can omit them for still-delicious chai bars or experiment by adding in chocolate chips, nuts or dried fruit for a fun twist.
These chai blondies keep well lightly covered at room temperature for 2 days, any longer I recommend storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
For best results, let the bars cool for at least ten minutes before slicing and serving. If you slice too soon, they may crumble, but as they cool they firm up into a perfect chewy texture.
