Ingredients

  • 1 cup Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

Directions

Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until combined.  Set aside.  Place the butterscotch chips and cream in a medium-sized, microwavable bowl.  Cook on HIGH for 35 to 45 seconds; stir until smooth.  Microwave an additional 10 to 15 seconds if necessary.     Add the brown sugar, coconut oil, butter, and vanilla to the melted butterscotch chips; stir together until smooth.  Add the eggs and beat with a mixer on high speed for two minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.   Next, add the flour mixture; stir until just combined.  Fold in the semisweet chips, coconut and pecans. Pour the batter into an 8-or 9-inch square baking dish, lined with aluminum foil and coated with non-stick cooking spray.  Smooth the top with a spatula and bake in a 350°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs clinging.  Cool completely and refrigerate for an hour.  Once chilled, carefully lift the blondies from the pan, using the foil as handles, and transfer them to a cutting board.  Separate the foil from the blondies and cut them into 2-to 3-inch squares.   The blondies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Notes

Other add-ins can be substituted for the chocolate chips, coconut and pecans
