Birthday Blondies #‎IsabelsBirthdayBash‬

Hi Everyone,

Today is a very special day!  We are having a virtual birthday party for one of the most amazing ladies, Isabel!  Who’s Isabel, you wonder?  She is the lady behind #SundaySupper and Family Foodie.  A little over 3 years ago I was invited to Sunday Supper by Isabel.  At first I wasn’t sure, but how could I resist the concept of celebrating family with food on around the Sunday table.  I have been blessed to be a part of this family.  Isabel has given me so much that she probably doesn’t even realize.  I actually got to meet Isabel last summer for the #ChooseDreams campaign. She is a fantastic woman who is driven for success, and is truly someone I look up too.  Here is a picture of Isabel with Katie.  Isabel is the woman on the right.

For today’s special day, I made Isabel, Birthday Blondies.  I think every birthday needs to have sprinkles and what better way than with a cake like bar.

The Blondies are light, moist, sweet and has a little crunch from the sprinkles.  I love the crunch!  They are also a little bit on the healthy side.  I made them with whole wheat flour and only a 1/2 stick of butter.  Plus this recipe makes 24 two inch bars and are only 111 calories.  I call that guilt free!  So that means Isabel can have her dessert and her wine too!  🙂

Not only are these bars tasty, but they are such a breeze to make.  I whipped these together in about 45 minutes, and that includes baking time. To make the bars I melted a 1/2 cup of butter and then stirred in brown sugar.  Added the basics; eggs, flour etc…  But one of the keys to giving this a birthday flavor is Butter Extract.  Have you ever used Butter Extract?  It really tastes like a birthday cake.  If you don’t have it, don’t worry, it is not needed in this recipe.  By the way, I bought the Butter Extract a Walmart.
