I’m sitting right here typing up this publish on April 1st, whereas the sleet & snow falls exterior. There are such a lot of issues I really like about residing in New England, however springtime snow is certainly NOT considered one of them. As a lot as I’m accomplished with the chilly, I’ve determined to embrace this (hopefully) final snowfall by staying inside, sipping piping sizzling tomato soup for lunch, getting in lots of cuddles with the kiddos, cooking up an enormous comforting pot of Jessica’s hen & dumplings for dinner, and baking these blondies.
I derived inspiration for these chewy bars from Detoxinista’s Paleo Almond Butter Blondies, which I made a few weeks in the past and we scarfed down in only a matter of days. I stored the identical idea of protecting the blondies freed from flour, however I swapped the almond butter for peanut butter and added an additional egg so they’d end up even chewier. I additionally reduce down a bit on the sugar, however to not concern, they’re completely candy sufficient!
The highest of the blondies develops a crisp crust, however the insides keep delicate and chewy; the proper mixture of textures in any type of cookie bar. They’re tremendous simple to whip up, take solely 20 minutes to bake, and also you most likely have already got all the components in your kitchen.
These blondies turned out to be the proper antidote to the crummy climate, however I’ve a sense I’ll be making them over and over even because the snow melts and it begins to truly really feel like spring exterior.
