The other day we needed a treat to bring along to the beach, and the final choice was to make blondies with whole wheat, toffee bits and chocolate chips. I adjusted a blondies recipe from the September 2012 issue of Everyday Food to fit the ingredients we had on hand.
- 1 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (I cut up 2 Baker’s chocolate squares)
- 1/2 cup of toffee bits (I used some Heath toffee bits that I found on clearance at Target
- Cream sugar, brown sugar and butter for about 4 minutes.
- Add eggs one at a time
- Add vanilla
- In a separate bowl mix the flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt
- Mix in the flour mixture a little at a time
- Stir in the toffee bits and chocolate chips with a dough scraper
- Spray a 12 x 8 inch pan with baking spray
- Add the mixture, and make sure to make it level in the pan
- Put in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for about 28 – 30 minutes.
- The blondies are done, when a toothpick comes out with only a few moist crumbs
- Cool on a wire rack before cutting
The blondies turned out to be delicious, and the adjusted blondies recipe was a great. All of the ingredients used were either from ALDI, or they were bought on sale with coupons, which turned this recipe into a very frugal recipe. The boys loved them, and the mix of toffee and chocolate was a nice little surprise.
Have you ever made blondies?
