My daughters birthday is this weekend and I have to send some brownies in to her class for a special treat.  I had planned on only making a batch of my texas sheet cake (recipe is in my cookbook) but as my daughter was walking out the door this morning she informed me ” You know mom, not everyone likes chocolate like you do.”  What, not like chocolate?? :)  She was right, even one of my twins don’t like chocolate.  So I had to quickly create a recipe that would easily pass the kids test and this one did!  When my girls got home from school today they tasted these blondies for the first time and LOVED them.

This recipe is so simple and will literally take you less then 5 minutes to prepare.  I just made a plain blondie, but you could add so many different ingredients to customize these brownies.  Here are just a few ideas.

  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Pecans and chocolate
  • coconut flakes
  • instead of vanilla, you can substitute almond extract
  • Grand Marnier or Baileys Irish Cream
  • Dried fruit of choice
  • Raisins or dried cranberries

Use your imagination, anything goes when adding your favorite flavors to these delicious brownies.  Enjoy!

**Please note:  There is a gluten free and grain free version of this recipe located in the comment section below this post.

      @Jenni2 I do Jenni, or I have a recipe that could easily be adapted to make a blondie with a few changes.
      Grain and Gluten Free Blondies
      3 cups blanched almond flour
      1/4 cup grass fed butter
      1/4 cup coconut oil
      1/4 cup rapunzel unrefined sugar
      1/4 cup raw honey
      2 eggs
      2 tsp vanilla extract
      1 tsp baking soda
      1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt
      Preheat oven to 350 F. With a Kitchen Aid or electric mixer blend together butter, coconut oil, organic cane sugar, raw honey, eggs and vanilla extract. Blend until well combined (about 2 minutes). In a separate bowl combine almond flour, baking soda and unrefined sea salt. Mix well. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and blend until well combined. Press into a greased 8×8 pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.
      Hope this is more of what you were looking for :)  Halle
