S’mores Blondies

Before I get down to the good stuff, I want to take care of business quickly.

Workout of the Day: Treadmill 5k shake out run

Easy and done.  Felt surprisingly good besides a few moments in the beginning, but I’m not too worried about that.  Race, here I come 🙂

The Good Stuff 🙂

Alright — so you all have seen pictures for the past few days about these blondies I baked Zach as a treat for coming home from his business trip.  My inspiration came from pinterest, and specifically this recipe.  I used it as inspiration and ran with it.

Now I am a huge fan of s’mores and most things even hinting at the flavor, so I was pretty confident this one would be a good one.

Review

Now, I’ll be the first to say I was baking with ingredients that I never have, or thought I would

But I was open minded…

I did healthify the mix a bit (like I Do), but even Zach admitted you couldn’t really tell that the batter was healthified much.  His first response to these treats was

You definitely got the s’mores flavor.

If you like s’mores, you will definitely like these.

I’m going to be completely honest with you and say they weren’t my absolute favorite treats in the world, but they were good — I mean I’ve been eating them for 4 days straight :), so trust me, it’s not that I DIDN’T like them.

I think it was just that I’m picky with baking and I the artificial ingredients threw me off a bit.  BUT — I do think these would be a  hit at any Fall part of bon fire!   

Somebody else should definitely try these and let me know their thoughts 🙂  I’d be very curious 🙂
