  • Yield: 24 servings (serving size: 1 bar)


  • Blondies:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray
  • Drizzle:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon bourbon


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare blondies, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (through salt), stirring well with a whisk.

Place 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add egg substitute and egg to sugar mixture; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.

Spoon batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

To prepare drizzle, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, whipping cream, and bourbon in a medium saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Pour mixture into a bowl; chill 1 hour. Drizzle bourbon mixture over blondies; cut into 24 bars.
