    full disclosure, I don't own a food processor, just an immersion blender. This didn't hide the 'healthy' elements, but my family liked these as a cakey snack bar!

    Easy and yummy! Substituted honey like a few others and it came out great. Definitely will make again

    Simple, easy and tasty. Huge success all round. Mine were more cakey (light and fluffy) than blondie, but they all got eaten very quickly.

    So good! I used honey instead of maple syrup and doubled (put in a 9 by 13 pan). I made this for my brother who was just diagnosed with celiac and he absolutely devoured these.

    No one in my family liked this. Only reason I could give it one star is because I managed to trick my three-year-old into trying it but then she was looking at it with a funny face. It was a grainy texture almost like liver. Not sure why it has such high ratings Probably because mostly the healthy types even attempt this. I don’t think this is a recipe for people that like normal Blondies.

    Omw I loved the Blondies so much, it is delicious. I substituted the maple syrup and used honey instead. Tasty will definitely be making this again real soon.

    These healthy cookies are delicious! I wrap up each cookie in tinfoil and put them in the freezer, then my kids take one to school every day and eat it instead of store-bought granola bars. Love it!
