After a long day in the garden, or a short day in the garden when its 90 degrees outside, there is a hunger that is only satisfied by bbq. And then after that hunger is conquered, a new one comes along that can only be satisfied by cookies.
These blondies are packed with stuff. You just keep throwing food from the cupboard into the bowl until it can’t mix anymore. They fill the house with that cookie aroma when they are baking. They stay moist and chewy for a couple days, which is useful when two people are trying to eat an entire pan of cookies.
Farmer blondies. Emptying out your cupboards while filling up your tummies.
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 pan. Cover with foil or parchment if you have trouble with things sticking.
Melt 3/4 cups butter. Stir in 1 1/2 cups brown sugar. Heat again until its all hot, then let cool.
Pour butter mixture into bowl. Mix in 1 cup flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp salt.
Add in 1 tbsp vanilla and 3 eggs.
Add one cup granola, one cup nuts (I used walnuts and sunflower seeds), and one cup chocolate chips.
Spread mixture into pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Let cool and cut into bars.
