Also, I wrote that post in 20 minutes, proofread it thrice, published, re-read...and still saw mistakes. Clearly we all have our strengths and writing on a whim is not mine.*
These blondies are an oxymoron.
There's a lot of "treats" out there that use healthy ingredients but usually the
That's nice, I always think. They always taste healthy.
These blondies taste like they could be healthy....but they're not.
So I have no tagline to pull you in. I was looking for something to do with a jar of Cookie Butter. This is what happened.
Easy? Yes. Tasty? Sure. Healthy? Eh. There's no added sugar or oil, so I suppose that's a plus.
Actually, yes, they are healthy. They have eggs in them. Protein. We can call them healthy.
Cookie Butter Blondies
inspired by Nutella Brownies (Not a Nutella fan, so I used Cookie Butter.)
1 cup cookie butter
1 t. vanilla
10 T. all-purpose flour
In a bowl, whisk together the cookie butter, vanilla, and eggs. You can warm the cookie butter first to make it easier, but not too hot or the eggs will "cook".
Slowly incorporate the flour until well-combined.
Spoon into a greased mini-muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until browned on top.
Makes about 18 mini-blondies.
Apple Butter Banana Bread went to school with me to be shared. Because I buy bananas with the intention of consumption. And then that doesn't happen. So I freeze them or bake with them.
Along with that, I made what I'll call Cookie Butter Fudge. It was an experiment and turned out quite well (how can sweetened-condensed milk go wrong?).
Also, I gave away a Target gift card on Mrs. K's blog last week. Abbey won and I was more than happy to send it her way. Congrats Abbey!
Also, I need to start sharing some inspiring blog posts. Kelly and Greg's paleo story was an awesome read. Totally inspiring. Check it out!
Did you do anything randomly kind this week? This 52 Weeks project is changing my way of thinking, but it's not making me happier on a daily basis. You'd think I'd be more willing NOT to curse the cold/snow/darkness or NOT to yell at the person driving 15 mph in an attempt to show my inner happiness and gratitude. But that's not happening.
I think this is more than a mindset change. Maybe I'll figure things out when I'm 51 weeks in.
