Ingredients in cadbury egg blondies
You’re only 10 ingredients away from the most mouth watering, festive, and even cute (these will be pastel colored!) blondies. Below is a list of all of the ingredients you’ll need, complete with many of my healthier favorites! So grab your almond butter, and let’s dive in.
- Oat flour: First up, 1/2 cup of oat flour will be the base of our blondies.
- Rolled oats: We will mix that with 1/2 cup of rolled oats — the perfect ingredient for adding texture and even a dash of protein!
- Baking soda: Next, include 1/2 tsp of baking soda to help things cook properly.
- Salt: A little salt goes a long way. Add 1/2 tsp.
- Almond butter: Finally, one of the best ingredients in this dish, add 1 cup of almond butter!
- Coconut oil: 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil is used as the “liquid” component and helps to bind all of the ingredients together.
- Coconut sugar: We’ll be using coconut sugar in place of regular sugar in the amount of 1/2 cup.
- Eggs: 2 eggs will be used for consistency and baking purposes. Eggs bind everything together and help us get that fluffy blondie texture!
- Vanilla: Include 1 tsp of vanilla for flavor (this one is so important!).
- Cadbury mini eggs: Finally, 1 cup of Cadbury mini eggs will make these blondies complete.
The tools you’ll need to make this blondies recipe
Cadbury mini egg blondies are made using only 6 main tools and items. Here’s a quick list, followed by the measuring cups you’ll need!
For measuring, you’ll need the following sized cups: 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, and 1 cup.
How to make healthy Cadbury egg blondies
This recipe is quite similar to a brownie recipe. We’ll start by mixing the dry and wet ingredient separately, and then will we will put it in a dish and sprinkle Cadbury eggs on top! This recipe makes 12 fluffy, delicious blondies.
To begin, preheat the oven to 350Fº and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper or nonstick spray.
Whisk in the two eggs and the vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until well combined. Fold in 1/2 of the Cadbury eggs.
Pour and press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish, and then top with the remaining Cadbury eggs.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool before eating.
Here are some great quick tips to use as you prep your mini egg blondies.
Using a different sized pan
I recommend an 8×8 pan for this recipe, though any sized pan will work. The only change will be in the thickness of the blondies. The larger the pan, the thinner they will be.
Adding extra candy
Want to add even more fun to your blondies? Extra candies do the trick! I recommend anything chocolately or creamy — M&Ms, mini Reese’s or even crushed Twix bars would probably be very tasty.
How are these blondies healthier?
I love using certain ingredients in my baked goods to make my dishes as nutrient-dense and good-for-you as possible. Here’s how I made these blondies a step above the rest!
- Oat flour: Oat flour makes a great substitute for regular processed white flour, as it is both lower in carbs and higher in fiber!
- Rolled oats: I love using rolled oats in baked goods — it’s the perfect way to sneak in extra vitamins and minerals.
- Almond butter: A touch higher in certain nutrients, almond butter is slightly healthier than peanut butter. It certainly helps in our quest for the healthiest ingredients, though!
- Coconut oil: I pretty much always use coconut oil over other oils (vegetable, canola, etc.).
- Coconut sugar: Last but not least, using coconut sugar in place of regular sugar is a great way to make your baked goods a bit more nutrient-rich. Plus, it tastes great!
Blondies can be kept at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Keep them in a tightly sealed container, and they should stay fresh and yummy at room temperature for ~4 days, and in the refrigerator for ~1 week.
