Note: I first created this recipe in 2011 as part of a contest with Love Grown Foods, a Sweet Tooth sponsor.
It will surprise just about NOBODY that I love cookies. And bar cookies are some of my favorites. They’re chewy, dense, easy to make in big batches and you can even cut them into fun shapes.Click To Tweet
This recipe for Love Blondies is inspired by my Granola Blondies.
These blondies are both soft and chewy yet crunchy and sweet, thanks to the granola. Basically, they’re awesome.

- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups Love Grown Foods Raisin Almond Crunch granola
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine egg, egg white, brown sugar and oil; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the wet ingredients just until blended. Stir in granola & dried cranberries (batter will be thick).
- Spread into a 9-in. square baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-28 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool & cut into bars…or use a cookie cutter to cut into hearts to spread the love. ENJOY!
Typically, I cut these blondies into bars, but considering that they’re made with Love Grown granola and all, I found it rather fitting to cut them into hearts.
Now, just be warned — these will not last long in your house (so consider making a double batch!).
