Believe it or not, I had never heard of a blondie before a visit to My Catholic Kitchen. The recipe for blondie bars looked so easy that I thought even I could handle it!
This simple bar recipe can easily be modified to suit anyone’s sweet tooth.
Veronica adapted her blondies from the Mom Chef using blueberries. The Mom Chef adapted her blondies from a recipe she found on AllYou and used raspberries. I had blackberries picked from the bushes behind my building at work, so they turned out to be my berry of choice.
Naturally, I had to add a few healthy ingredients, so I tossed in crunchy walnuts and used my flour of choice – whole wheat pastry flour.
I could easily see this blondie brownie recipe topped with chocolate chips, or butterscotch chips. Maybe even both! Happy baking!
