Perfect Blondies Recipe

Blondies2

Ugh, it’s been a long week. For those of you who are experiencing hump day like I am, I feel ya. All you want to do is face plant into a pan of these right?

That’s exactly what I want to do. I don’t want to think about going into a cold, grey cubicle tomorrow morning. Not again. Not on the most perfect of autumn weeks. Yea, what’s up with the weather? It’s 70ish, crisp, and the leaves are majestic shades of orange, red, and yellow. Hm, all of a sudden, I feel less dreary. Maybe it’s because I’m stuffing myself with my third blondie or maybe it’s because I’m thinking about how great life feels on this balcony, overlooking the trees in the park.

The trees are beautiful, but I think these blondies are really hitting the spot. The chocolate is so gooey and the crunchy walnuts blend in perfectly with the sweet and somewhat salty batter. All the goodness of chocolate and walnuts but a little less effort than brownies.

You know why this is the best blondie recipe in the whole entire world? Because it’s easy. And the result is the sweety, chewy, deliciousness that’s in my hands right now. I’m tired now. I love escaping into the spicy and chocolatey wonders of my blog, but I’m only human. It’s time for some shuteye.

And this is what I’ll dream about: I’m going to make an apple dessert one of these days. And also something else with pumpkin, again. Ah, that sounds great.

    New to your blog! I was looking for a good Blondie recipe and I love that you put the calorie info at the bottom too! I will make this tonight for our dessert for the weekend. Might sub the butter for coconut oil and use a tablespoon of vanilla, it just makes life better lol!

      Thanks for stopping by, Faith! I’m glad you found the calorie information helpful and I love that you’re modifying some of the ingredients – so creative with the coconut oil, I’ll have to try that soon!

  3. Looks perfect. Great pics. Keep up the good work.
