Chunky Peanut Butter Blondies
There’s plenty of “butter” in this recipe--prune butter and peanut butter--but only a whisper of saturated fat. Each blondie gets only 5% of its calories from saturated fat.
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup prune butter (lekvar)
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar, peanut butter, prune butter, egg whites, and vanilla until well combined.

    3. With the mixer at low speed, beat in the flour mixture until just combined. Spoon into the baking pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the blondie starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.

    4. Turn out of the pan onto a wire rack to cool. When cool, cut into 12 blondies.
