This healthy whole-wheat blondie recipe makes a batch of plain blondies. For a classic taste, fold in toasted pecans and chocolate chips, or have fun experimenting with new blondie flavor combinations like coconut-almond, hazelnut-espresso or even bacon-date.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and store airtight for up to 3 days; freeze for up to 3 months.
Try white whole-wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour in baked goods. It's made from hard white wheat berries, which makes it lighter in color and flavor than regular whole-wheat flour, but with the same nutritional properties. Look for it near other whole-grain flours. For the best flavor, store it airtight in the freezer.
To Cut Perfect Bars: Grab the overhanging parchment or foil and transfer the whole batch to a cutting board, then cut into bars.
