Toffee Blondies

Despite the warm weather, I found myself craving the sweet, caramel flavor of these delicious bars. While I love chocolate, sometimes my taste buds want something different from the usual fudge brownie. These bars are from Everyday Food, and are very simple and easy to make. I always double the recipe, as these bars disappear very quickly in my house. As per usual, I split the flour 50/50, all purpose and whole organic spelt, I figure, why not try to increase the fiber in this recipe, it doesn’t affect the taste to me at all. Hope you love these as much as we do!

Toffee Blondies

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup toffee pieces or 1 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare an 8 by 8 inch square pan by lining it with foil.

In an electric mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar. It won’t quite cream like unmelted butter, but just get it mixed really well.

Add the eggs, vanilla, and salt and mix until well combined.

Add the flour and mix on low until just combined.

Add the toffee bits and, with a rubber spatula, mix them in, scraping down the bowl and giving the batter a final mix by hand.

Bake the blondies for 30-35 minutes until just golden brown and firm.
