    Yum, the blondies look so good. I love blondies, pretty much any way they come… they are almost better than brownies, lol!

    You are amazing and an inspiration! Your recipes are excellent, and I love your persistence in getting them JUST right.

    And thank you for the reminder to be grateful. It is indeed a blessing to wake up this morning, 8 years after the terrible wound of Sept. 11th, and know we are still here, and still free.

    Best… Cass

    These look delcious! I love that you include recipes with agave nectar. I have been able to figure out how to incorporate it in a few recipes, but love finding new ones!

    Those look yummy! Awhile back I substituted dried cranberries for currants in a muffin, could I do that with these?

    Yea, that would be great. Or cherries, raisins – any dried fruit would work.

    I love hearing the story behind all of your recipe creations. So… what do you do with the not-so-perfect batches?

    Oh gosh, how I hate to admit this to one of the blogosphere’s most thrifty moms…they usually go in the trash. Sometimes if they’re not bad I send them to work with Joe. Freezing is an option but if we didn’t want to eat them now we probably don’t want to eat them 2 months from now. The other thing about GF food is that the shelf life is usually shorter than non-gf foods. It gets dry really fast. I throw a lot less away now than I used to. And I have some tricks like no nuts or other more expensive ingredients until I get the batter right.

    Yum! I love the idea of blondies, but have never really had a good one. These look like they could be that good one =D.

    Those look Sooo Dense and Decadent, Amy, but then you mention that you only eat one a day–that’s fantastic! I love treats that satisfy, but don’t make me wanting more and more. :-) Mr. GFE is a huge raisin fan … I’ll have to make some for him with raisins.

    Oh, and I can’t believe how many great Friday canivals there are. I’ve been participating in Diane’s Friday Foodie Fix (The W.H.O.L.E. Gang) as often as I can, but always learn about more roundups from you. They are well timed because Friday–when the work week is done–is usually when I want to get busy in the kitchen! ;-)

    Thank you!

    Most of the blog carnivals are not gluten-free but I have met so many neat people this way and learn so much about good food and presentation.

    I forgot to say thanks for the well-spoken reminder on 9/11 and counting our blessings. We must never forget and living life to the fullest is a way to honor those we lost that day.

    Those look delicious!! I wish I could find currants, for some reason they have been a bit hard to find for me…

    I buy them in bulk at Whole Foods or Central Market – they both carry alternative products.

    Just wanted to add that I usually freeze any failures and use them as crumb topping or to make crumb crusts. I note what they were lacking on the container, so I can add that if needed for whatever recipe, but sometimes the not sweet enough blondie experiment would be great crumb topping for a savory dish or an already sweet enough fruit dish.

    In the almond butter blondie recipe, the ingredient list calls for “1/c” almond butter. Is this 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup? I want to make these but want to make sure what the correct amount is.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Jennifer Goldbeck, Thanks for catching that error. I checked my notes – it’s 1/2 cup almond butter. The recipe has been updated. Have fun making these – they’re a favorite of mine.

    Yum! I am eating one as I type. Warm from the oven! I am always looking for more nutritious snacks for my 3 gluten-free boys! I can’t wait til morning – they will be very happy! Thanks!
    To use what I had on hand – I used coconut oil in place of the butter and honey instead of agave and lemon zest in stead of orange – came out great! I may need to *sample* another one from my batch…

    I’ve been looking for a good gluten-free, sugar-free blondie recipe to play around with. Yours look very delicious (and a bit fudgey, no?. So, thanks!

    Funny thing is, I watch a lot of “Throwdown with Bobby Flay” on the Food Network (I would say it’s my guilty pleasure, but sadly, that title actually goes to the Real Housewives franchise. Shameful, I know). He actually did a blondie throwdown against two guys who owned a bakery that specialized in blondies in….wait for it…OHIO! So, they’re there! They’ve just been hiding from you : )

    Amy Reply:

    @Beth, We love Bobby Flay, too. Isn’t he fabulous?? I love the way he works so hard to bring the everyday cook into the spotlight.

    Yea, those blondies were probably there all along…I was always on a diet when I was in Ohio because I was so darn chunky (ok, fat…) so I’m sure I turned a blind eye to anything yummy.

    Can I leave out the yogurt? Or do you have a dairyfree recipe for blondies
