This BLONDIE RECIPE is perfectly chewy, ready in less than 30 minutes, and topped with crackly cinnamon and sugar! My family can’t get enough of these little treats and I love how simple they are to make for any occasion.
We make lots of brownies in this house, but sometimes you just need a change!
But not a big change…a small change. A blonde brownie instead of a…well…brown brownie. 😉
These blondies are the best dang blondies I’ve ever eaten and they are beyond easy. One bowl, no mixer, ready in less than 30 minutes.
I love how exceptionally chewy they are, especially when you pair them with a crackly cinnamon sugar topping!
We love bar desserts. These peanut butter and jelly bars are another favorite!
Why we love these blonde brownies:
One Bowl! Who doesn’t love an easy clean up?
No Mixer Needed! The butter is melted, so all you need is a spoon and some elbow grease.
Six Ingredients! Bet you have everything you need in your kitchen!
Chewy! There’s nothing like biting into a gooey, chewy blondie – especially one topped with a crackly cinnamon sugar topping.
Common questions about this recipe:
Yes, that is one of the best parts! In order to achieve this, the blondies should cook until they are almost done, and then finish cooking while cooling. You can test this by sticking a toothpick in the blondies one to two inches from the edge of the pan. If the toothpick comes out mostly clean, pull them from the oven.
Yep. Both. Haha! There is no chocolate in them, which is why they aren’t brownies. They have that fudgy texture of a brownie, though. They have the flavor of a cookie going on at the same time!
