Blondies Have More Fun

White Chocolate Walnut Blondie

And now for something completely different… Well, not really.

I decided to switch it up this time and make Blondies instead of Brownies. Think of Blondies as Brownies without the chocolate. They’re like Michael Jackson after the skin lightening. Too soon?

The recipe is actually pretty much the same as a basic chocolate chip cookie, except for some minor differences.

 

White Chocolate Walnut Blondies

  • 1 c AP flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/8 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 c melted butter
  • 1 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • 2/3 c white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all dry ingredients and the nuts.

Mix together the melted butter and sugar. This should cool it enough that you can mix the egg and vanilla into it.

Add your dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Spread into a 9 in. sq pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes until edges are brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean.

No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of These Brownies

Pumpkin Vegan Brownies... I think.

I love brownies. There’s something about the chocolaty, chewy, moist middles, surrounded by crispy, crunchy edges. I decided to try my hand at making a healthier alternative to regular brownies.

I came across multiple references to substituting all the liquid ingredients for a can of pureed pumpkin. No oil, no eggs, not even any water. Just pumpkin. Everyone said that it was just like eating a regular brownie.

They were dead wrong. It had the consistency of dense, bread pudding. Like a moist cake collapsed in on itself. It was chewy just like a brownie, but it verged on almost rubbery.

If you MUST make them, all you need to do is take your favorite brownie recipe (whether it’s from a box or from scratch) and replace all the liquid ingredients with a 15 oz. can of pure pumpkin. Bake as directed.

That Sweet, That Nasty, That Gushy Stuff

Marshmallow Brownies

Oh sweet Lord...

Simple recipe here. Take your favorite brownie recipe and about 2/3 of the way through baking, top with marshmallows. When they have melted and turned all toasty brown, they’re done.
