Like any good blondie recipe, these are very moist and tender on the inside, but the snickerdoodle-like topping forms a wonderful sugary crust to balance the rich filling. This blondie recipe was adapted from Recipezaar.

Serves: 24 servings
Ingredients
  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups packed dark brown sugar (I used TJ’s organic brown sugar)
  • 1 cup dairy-free margarine, at room temperature (I used Earth Balance Soy-Free, which is salted)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature (see special diet notes above for egg-free)
  • 1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and lightly grease a 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and set aside.
  3. In large bowl, beat together margarine and brown sugar until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
  5. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended.
  6. Spread the batter evenly in your prepared pan (I lightly greased a spatula for easy stick-free spreading).
  7. Combine the 2 tablespoons of sugar and the remaining 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a small dish. Evenly sprinkle the mixture atop the blondie batter (it may seem like a lot, but go for it).
  8. Bake the blondies for 25 to 30 minutes or until the surface springs back when gently pressed. They will be firmer and raised around the edges, sinking in the middle. No worries, this is okay.
  9. Let the blondies cool in the pan completely before cutting (if you can resist!).
Notes
Variations: You can make this recipe Egg-Free and Vegan by substituting Ener-G Eggs for the Eggs. The results will vary slightly, but should still be delicious.
