Whole Wheat Toffee Crunch Blondies

IMG_20150515_181801There are very few recipes that I have found that cannot be made with Whole Wheat flour.  I am, honestly, a little confused why we ever started using White flour!
So this week I made Blondies… Because they were made with 100% Whole Wheat, they are more of a tan colour, and the natural, nutty flavour of the wheat really came through in this recipe.  My whole family loved them…  I hope yours does too!
To make Whole Wheat Toffee Crunch Blondies you will need:
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 cup toffee bits, divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease  a 9 x 13 baking pan.IMG_20150515_151912
