Chunky Peanut Butter Blondies
There’s plenty of “butter” in this recipe--prune butter and peanut butter--but only a whisper of saturated fat. Each blondie gets only 5% of its calories from saturated fat.
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup prune butter (lekvar)
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2 In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar, peanut butter, prune butter, egg whites, and vanilla until well combined.
3 With the mixer at low speed, beat in the flour mixture until just combined. Spoon into the baking pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the blondie starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
4 Turn out of the pan onto a wire rack to cool. When cool, cut into 12 blondies.
Makes 12 blondies servings.
