Breakfast Blondies

How to make Breakfast Blondies

Cookies, blondies, in particular, are one of my guilty pleasures. I couldn’t resist creating a nutritious blondie recipe with less sugar and more fiber.  To avoid a dry and crumbly cookie, I included applesauce as an ingredient, which creates a moist texture.  Adding honey to decrease the sugar content provided the perfect amount of sweetness. The oats and chia seeds add a healthy amount of fiber.  Chia seeds also offer omega-3s, protein, and calcium, making these decadent bars a well-balanced breakfast bar or snack for adults and kids on-the-go.
