Ever hear of a “blondie” brownie? A blondie resembles your traditional brownie, with one major difference, one’s made with vanilla and the other with chocolate. The thing is, I love benefit-rich dark chocolate and even my blondie has to have some chocolate chips thrown in there, so this recipe is a spin on the blondie (which is already a spin on the brownie). These are my chocolate chip cookie bars, the untraditional and healthier blondie.

What Is A Blondie?

A traditional blondie recipe calls for vanilla and brown sugar instead of using cocoa, which gives it that lighter, blonde color. Unlike brownies, there’s no chocolate or chocolate flavors added to blondies. Some people add white chocolate or butterscotch chips to their blondies, but I use chocolate chips — making them my own chocolate chip cookie bars.

My blondie-esque chocolate chip cookie bars are also gluten-free and made with a natural sugar substitute, maple sugar. Maple sugar is what remains after the sap of sugar maple is boiled for longer than is needed to create maple syrup. Once almost all the water has been boiled off, solid sugar remains. This takes the place of brown sugar, which is commonly used in blondie recipes.

And, curve ball, I use cannellini beans in my chocolate chip cookie bars, too. Beans help to add volume to the cookies without the need for flour or gluten products. Just like using black beans for my black bean brownies recipe, I chose light, cannellini beans for my blondies.
