You didn’t think I would let a month of writing go and not post at least one baking slice did you? Well, here it is. I needed something for out senior lunch tomorrow. Because of blogging, commenting, and other things I needed to do today I did not want to make something too complicated and time consuming.
I opted for M&M blondies. In case you are not familiar with blondies, they are basically brownies without the chocolate. I chose to put M&Ms in them because the pastel-colored ones are out for Easter. They could easily be switched out and nuts or chocolate chips could be used in their place.
As always, I start by collecting everything I need just to make sure I don’t need to run to the store in the middle dof baking.
Next up is measuring to make sure I have enough of everything.
It doesn’t take long to mix everything together. The last thing I do is add the M&Ms and fold them in using a spatula.
Into a greased pan it goes.
Now, 20 minutes in a 350-degree oven and they are finished.
Cool them, cut them, and eat them. Oh wait. I can’t eat them. They are for the church lunch tomorrow.
Here is the recipe.

I needed something sweet today. I love the springtime M & Ms…I make blondies but have never used the Ms. I’m thinking this weekend. (And the tip to make sure all ingredients are already in the house? That’s the most important of all tips.) Happy senior lunch!
As I’m sure you have guessed. that tip comes from experience.
Ummm! Looks great! Baking is one of my favorite things to do… although I don’t do it as often as before. And like you, I prefer to don’t bake from boxes…I’m old school or more “traditional” school!
Ther3e is a taste to baked from scratch that box mixes just can’t duplicate. although I do use them from time to time
It looks delicious. I always wondered what a blondie was when I would see out in stores. Thanks for sharing the recipe too. I hope you had a lovely lunch a church.
Blondies have the chewiness of a brownie without the chocolate taste.
Oh my goodness, I LOVE blondies and haven’t had them in ages. I am for sure making these tomorrow. And yes, I already know that I don’t have chocolate chips in the house, so I’ll follow step one very carefully. Thanks for the reminder about these delicious treats. Also, I nearly wrote about baking banana bread today, but then I thought, “I think I write about banana bread every year…” So glad you write this today.
I am glad the church has monthly lunches. I enjoy baking, but with just two of us in the house I don’t need lots of baked goods. This way I get a taste, but share most with others.
Just popped a batch in the oven. The kids are *thrilled*.
That looks delicious. Thank you for the recipe.
You’re welcome. These are really easy to make
The people at the lunch seemed to enjoy them.
Looks wonderful! Dare I try it? Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Lynne, really easy to make and you could substitute whatever you like for the M&Ms, I have used white chocolate chips and they turned out quite tasty.
Bob, I like that you are such an organized baker and you provide the recipe. I’ve made blondies before but not with lovely pastel M&Ms. You made me hungry for chocolate.
Carol, the M&Ms gave it a nice springtime look.
