Honey Bear Blondies {Recipe}

Honey Bear Blondies | Lil Miss Cakes
It is traditional to bake with honey at the start of the Jewish New Year-it’s a wish for a Sweet New Year. I personally love honey cake and bake this one from Smitten Kitchen every year. My recipe for honey cookies is also insanely popular during this season. I also have a recipe for honey sugar cookies that are perfect for cutting out cookie shapes, apple honey crumb muffins that are moist, sweet, and delicious, as well as honey whoopie pies for the more adventurous baker. But not everybody loves the taste of honey in their desserts. For those people I present you with honey bear blondies. I call them “honey bear” because everybody knows about the plastic bears that honey comes in. Blondies, or blonde brownies are basically brownies without chocolate in the batter. I have a recipe for blondies I shared a few years ago. It makes soft, cake like chocolate chip cookie squares and it’s delicious. The addition of honey in this recipe makes super fudgy, thick, dense cookie squares with the slightest hint of honey flavor. I found 2 similar recipes for honey blondies: one from Martha Stewart, and the other from the Ovenly cookbook that is floating around the internet and used those to come up with this recipe. My recipe is dairy free, quick, and easy. All the ingredients are easy to find, I’m sure you have everything you need right in your pantry already!
