  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • Zest of 1 lemon (1 tablespoon)

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup whole-wheat flour, preferably white whole-wheat

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square baking pan with cooking spray. Beat sugar, oil and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

  2. Add eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla; beat until combined. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat on low speed until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in raspberries. Transfer to the prepared baking dish; smooth the surface with the spatula.

  3. Bake until the edges are golden and the top springs back when lightly touched, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

To make ahead

Wrap blondies in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
