Recipe Notes

Tips and techniques:

  • Try to have all ingredients at room temperature when you start making this recipe.
  • To make these blondies gluten-free, substitute a gluten-free flour.  I used Trader Joe's GF flour and it worked great.
  • Dark brown sugar has more molasses than light brown sugar.  If you prefer a lighter flavor choose light brown sugar.
  • To keep the parchment paper in place in the pan spray the pan with a little oil or add a drop of oil to the bottom of the pan prior to putting the parchment paper in.
  • For extra fun, top your blondies with ice cream, hot fudge sauce, whipped cream, chocolate chips.

What is the difference between a blondie and a brownie?

  • Brownies are chocolate flavor using cocoa powder or melted chocolate.
  • Blondies use brown sugar and brownies usually do not.

Do you put blondies in the fridge?

  • Yes, you can store blondies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, at room temperature for a few days, or freeze for several months.

How do you know the blondies are done?

  • You'll know the blondies are done when the center is set, the edges turn slightly golden and pull away from the edge of the pan.
