Nasty-Looking, Yummy-Tasting Granola Blondies


Last week I read CookiePie’s post about her Chubby Hubby blondies. And I wanted them. RIGHT NOW! But of course I couldn’t make them without making a few changes to make them a little healthier. Okay, I made a lot of changes. My philosophy is that one should eat well, but there is no reason to not work for “well” in terms of health as well as taste.

My bars did not look anywhere as good as CookiePie’s, but they tasted good. How good? Good enough for my Real Southern Boy  husband to rate them “either 4.5 or 5 out of 5″. YES! He probably only thought they were full of fat because, well, Reese’s are full of fat. But I remain quite satisfied with getting away with granola (homemade with flax, of course) and kefir in a “junk food” bar.

And thus I present to you delicious granola blondies gone healthy/ier. Don’t expect a dry granola bar like the type you’d take on a hike. Think of a hearty, moist, sweet bar with a rich mix of flavors.


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup kefir or plain yogurt
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 cups granola
  • 1 cup Reese’s peanut butter cups chopped
  • 1/2 cup Reese’s pieces

Mix together eggs, brown sugar, kefir, and vanilla. Gradually add in flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix in granola and candy. Poor into a 9″ pan and bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Cool before cutting.

    ohhh those look very good! I am sure that my husband would be VERY pleased to get these tasty treats… but I am afraid that the reaces would not make it into the bars… they are his favorite!

    Love your title. This is why it’s important not to knock something until you try it. Although they don’t look that bad to me! They sound amazing–Reese’s are the bomb. :) Hope you’re doing well!
