blondiesThe 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.

Blondies Ingredients:

  • 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

 Making Blondies

Blondies Directions:

  1. Cream sugar, brown sugar and butter for about 4 minutes.
  2. Add eggs one at a time
  3. Add vanilla
  4. In a separate bowl mix the flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt
  5. Mix in the flour mixture a little at a time
  6. Stir in the toffee bits and chocolate chips with a dough scraper
  7. Spray a 12 x 8 inch pan with baking spray
  8. Add the mixture, and make sure to make it level in the pan
  9. Put in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for about 28 – 30 minutes.
  10. The blondies are done, when a toothpick comes out with only a few moist crumbs
  11. 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?

  1. sounds really yummy

  2. I love this recipe for Blondies and the fact that you made it healthier is even better. Since my husband was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Disease and Diabetes last December I have had to try and convert all the recipes we love into healthier ones. It has been a challenge, but we’re doing it. He has lost almost 80 lbs and I have lost 35, and yet we can still have a sweet or two every month. Thanks for another great recipe!!

  3. I’ve made something similar to this and they were really good. I like the addition of whole wheat flour in this recipe.
