maple blondie recipeEven though we are still early into September, it is starting to feel like fall.  Fall is my favorite season by far, and I could be any happier about this if I tried.  I stocked my house with spicy scented candles over the weekend, went apple picking (bad crop this year, which is sad), and after I finish typing this, am getting my first Pumkpin Spice Soy Latte of the season.  Worth every nutritionally deprived calorie.  There is something about the onset of fall that makes me want to be in my kitchen baking.  There are certain ingredients that really get put on display this time of year, and then hide until next.  Pumpkin, apple, pure maple syrup, cinnamon, and clove.  It isn’t fair really, but for now, they are the stars of my kitchen.

These maple blondies are a good way to say hello to fall.  They are almost like a pancake in chewy bar form.  They are so easy to make, and so simple, that the maple syrup really shines.  When I speak of maple syrup, I am speaking of the kind that comes out of trees.  Not the kind that is flavored corn syrup.  There is a difference, and once you start using pure maple syrup, there is no turning back.  There are grades of maple syrup and I like grade B.  It is a deep amber color and has strong maple flavor.  It is not an inexpensive product, but well worth every additional cent.

  2. These look so delicious! Would love one with a latte right about now. :)

  3. I agree – there is nothing like pure maple syrup (I can’t even look Mrs. Butterworth in the face now). These blondies sound like a wonderful fall treat.

    Once I discovered real maple syrup, I could not go back to the other stuff. And I love the coffee cup! It’s so cute!

    Fall baking. There is something so cozy and comforting about it. Can you believe I had my first EVER Pumpkin Spice Latte yesterday?! I know, it seems that I’ve been living under a rock again. How could I have missed something so wonderful? YUM!

    I am still working on loving maple syrup haha. I don’t like how much thinner it is compared to the corn syrup variety. I do like the taste of anything maple-like, though. I want these blondies. Maybe I will have to learn to love and appreciate the thin consistency of maple syrup and buy some just for these blondies. YUMMMMM!!

    I LOVE fall! I had my first pumpkin latte of the season today while I perused the farmers market. I too am ready for fall baking (and cooking too!) Can not wait for soups, stews, chili’s and roasts to go with all the delicious fall treats I’ve pinned. This is being added to the list!

    So glad the cooler weather has finally made it to Kansas! These sound soooo delicious! I love some maple-y baked goods.

    Just wanted to let you know that I found your site from Foodgawker and, finding myself with some time and all the ingredients in my cupboard, I made these the other day and they were AMAZING. I sent them with my husband to his office (although I have my suspicions that they all got there safely), and I got a raving note back in the tupperware! Just a note to let you know the recipe was well appreciated!

  21. Dianna says:

    I don’t care for nuts in my desserts. Would it be a problem to leave them out or maybe substitute cinnamon nibs instead? I love anything maple and this recipe sounds very yummy (minus the nuts…haha!) Thanks for posting this recipe!

  22. How did I miss these last week? Oh my big toe, these look good. You had me at maple…….

    Hi, Bree! Do you use salted or unsalted butter in these? I always assume salted if it doesn’t say otherwise, but wanted to double check before I make them this weekend. Thanks!

    • bakedbree says:

      I always use unsalted in everything. But it does not make a huge difference, I just prefer the way unsalted tastes.
