These are fantastic!!

Top Review by So Cal Gal

These really are fantastic--they're as tasty as they are pretty, they're very easy to make, and they're better for you than the average blondies (I love the oil and applesauce instead of a stick of butter!)! I made a few changes, based on what we had: I used light olive oil, whole wheat pastry flour, sodium-free baking powder, and dried tart cherries (next time I'll try to get some dried cranberries). With the red berries and white chocolate chips, these would be perfect on a Christmas cookie tray (just thinking ahead--lol!). I look forward to making these again! Thanks so much for a great recipe, FloridaGrl!!
