Recipes and Tips for Healthier Living and Smarter Budgeting

Friday, April 22, 2011


Because I successfully tweaked my brownie recipe a while back to make it healthier--and haven't gone back--I decided to do the same with blondies. (The original recipe is from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, p. 211.) All of my family liked them, even though I accidentally used half the amount of sweetener the recipe called for.


1/2 c. honey
1 c. raw sugar (or 1/2 c. for less sweet--but still yummy--dessert)
2/3 c. butter
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. whole wheat flour (don't put it all in at once, though, because you may not need quite this much)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Grease 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. In medium saucepan heat butter, honey, and raw sugar over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. (Note: Always be careful when heating up honey this way, because it can splatter and burn you if it gets too hot.)

Cool slightly. Stir in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

Spread batter in prepared baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly; cut into bars while still warm.
