Honey Pecan Blondies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans


Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan, then line with parchment paper, allowing the paper to overhang the edge on two sides. Grease and flour the pan, then tap out any excess flour. Set aside.

Melt butter, applesauce, and honey in a saucepan. Stir in the brown sugar, then transfer to a mixing bowl. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth, then the white whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, and salt, until just combined. Let the batter cool 20 minutes. Stir in the chopped pecans, then transfer the batter to the prepared pan, smoothing the top and spreading the batter as evenly as you can.

Bake the pecan blondies until the edges are browned and the center is set, 24 to 28 minutes. Set the pan on a wire rack to cool completely, then use the parchment to lift blondies out of pan. Cut into squares and serve.
