Cinnamon Sugar Blondies

Blondie recipe that is perfectly chewy, ready in less than 30 minutes, and topped with crackly cinnamon and sugar!

Hello, friends.

I’m here today with something new and exciting and maybe a little terrifying.

I made a video. Of food. For you to watch.

My hands and arms (lots of arms, because I’m sorry, this was my first attempt at video and I didn’t realize how arm-y I was until I had already finished) are making their big debut. I hope you’re ready for it.


So, the video should hopefully show you how to make these cinnamon sugar blondies.

You actually don’t really need a video, because they are the easiest things in the world to make, but that’s why I chose them for my first video. Because I’m a chicken and I didn’t want to do hard things.

Blondie recipe with cinnamon sugar – can’t go wrong!

Anyway, that’s enough video talk. Watch it or don’t, but I’ll shut up about it now.

I will not, however, shut up about these blonde brownies.

I used Mark Bittman’s base recipe from his book, How To Cook Everything.

They 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 these blondies are, especially when you pair them with a crackly cinnamon sugar topping! Beyond delicious and perfect for adding to your holiday cookie trays.

Now go subscribe to my YouTube channel! I might just make another video one of these days!

Easy one bowl blondies with a cinnamon sugar topping!
