Raspberry Blondies

Raspberry Blondies

Hey there, and welcome back, friends. Brownies have been a staple for over a century, and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Some of our first childhood memories are begging to lick the spoon after beating the batter and being told no, but we all snuck a little lick anyway. 

Traditional brownies are made with cocoa powder, butter, eggs, and sugar. Ingredients that were readily available at all times. Over the years, the classic recipe has been altered in various ways to include fruits, different flavors, and nuts. What about all the people who don’t like milk chocolate? Well, don’t go anywhere because this recipe is for YOU; these Raspberry Blondies are for you and you would love them. 

Raspberry Blondies

What are Blondies? Blondies are brownies made with white chocolate instead to give the dessert a smooth floral and vanilla flavor: very similar ingredients but a whole new flavor profile.

These Raspberry Blondies are irresistibly delicious and super easy to whip up. These blondies include raspberries and almonds that elevate the traditional texture of this dessert. The result is a beautiful marriage of creamy and crunchy. 

Raspberry Blondies

This recipe uses frozen raspberries for convenience but if you have a raspberry bush of your very own or snag a deal at your local grocery store, then, by all means, go this route. The frozen raspberries hold up better when baked inside these blondies. 

Did you get a last-minute invite to a get-together and asked to bring a dessert? Don’t fret; these Raspberry Blondies are here to save the day. No one can resist the richness of the dense blondie, tartness from the raspberries, and slightly earthy crunch from the almonds.

To add the dry ingredients, we sift the flour into the mixture and mix until fully incorporated. This ensures the flour is light and mixed in well.

Next, melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. Stir in between each turn until no lumps are present.

Add the melted white chocolate to the batter and mix to incorporate.

Spread batter evenly in your pan.

Distribute your raspberries throughout the batter, ensuring you have an even and thick layer. (You can add less if you don’t want the flavor to be overpowering.)

Raspberry Blondies

Bake for 20 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean. They should almost look undercooked when removed from the oven.

Melt extra chocolate and drizzle to your preference all over the top.

Raspberry Blondies
Yield: serves 16

Raspberry Blondies

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces unsalted butter, softened (140 g)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons Almonds, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray and parchment line a 9×9 inch pan.
  3. In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
  4. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Mix until combined. 
  5. Sift in the flour and mix. 
  6. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in twenty-second intervals until completely melted. Make sure you don’t burn it. Once it’s ready, add it to the mixture. 
  7. Fold in the filleted almonds. 
  8. Pour the batter into the lined pan and spread with a spatula until even. ​​
  9. Add in the raspberries one by one distributed all over the pan. 
  10.  Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Since they are very light, make sure to not overbake. They should look undercooked. 
  11. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Once cool, take out the blondies and cut them into even squares. 
  12. Melt more chocolate and drizzle on top. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Use frozen raspberries because they hold together better once they are in the blondies. 
  • I used a 10-inch baking pan.  If you want them small you can cut them into 36 mini even squares or you can also cut them into 16 pieces to make them larger.
