Chewy brown sugar blondies loaded with Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Chipotle and Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds. Topped with a chopped almond streusel and baked, these spicy sweet blondies are one of my all-time favorite treats!
  • For the Blondies:
  • ¾ cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1½ cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Chipotle and Honey Roasted Vanilla Almonds
  • For the Streusel Topping:
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • a pinch of ancho chili powder (optional)
  • ⅓ cup chopped Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Vanilla and Chipotle Almonds
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 X 9 pan, line with parchment, and butter the parchment (you can skip the parchment but it makes lifting the blondies from the pan and slicing super easy!).
  2. Whisk together the brown sugar and [cooled] melted butter. Add the eggs, vanilla, and almond extract and whisk until fluffy and smooth.
  3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir until just combined. Stir in the almonds and spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
  4. To make the streusel, cut the butter into the flour, granulated sugar, and optional ancho chili powder. When coarse crumbles have formed, add the chopped almonds and sprinkle the streusel over the batter.
  5. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes; the top will appear shiny and cracked, and it will feel firm to the touch.
  6. Let the blondies cool slightly before slicing and serving.
I used both the Honey Roasted Vanilla AND Honey Roasted Chipotle Almond varieties in this recipe. You could use one, the other, or both. I loved the smoky chipotle spice paired with the sweet depth of vanilla. Both is my vote.
