White Chocolate & Almond Blondies with Raspberries

White Chocolate Almond Blondie with Raspberries

Oh I do love brownies, blondies, all sorts of easy, chocolatey tray bakes. You name it and if it contains chocolate (white, milk or dark) I’m there. 🙂

I tend to keep a small (ahem!) 😉 stash of chocolate for baking purposes and for some reason recently I have acquired quite a substantial amount of white chocolate. Must have been using milk and dark for baking much more of late obviously. Anyway, this sort of prompted me to come up with a way to use it up and what better way than to bake some blondies! 

White Chocolate Almond Blondie with Raspberries

My White Chocolate & Almond Blondies with Raspberries are just so delicious and if you are a fan of chocolatey, fruity bakes with some almond flavour thrown in, you will love them. I decided to substitute some of the flour with ground almonds and also threw in some flaked almonds for good measure and a bit of crunch. I went for flaked almonds as opposed to other nuts to keep the almond flavour going but feel free to substitute them if you like. Initially, I thought about using almond extract instead of vanilla but my original attempt without it worked out so well I decided to leave it. The almond flavour is really quite strong in this recipe and it marries so beautifully with sweetness of white chocolate and sharpness of seasonal raspberries. Perfect combination if you ask me!

Another thing that is really great about any brownies, or blondies for that matter, is that all you need is a bowl (being it a heatproof one in this case) and a wooden spoon. There is no need for fancy standing mixers (as much as I do love mine) and you can have a quick dessert whipped up in no time. Need any more convincing? Well, let me add  that they are easy to cut into neat portions and travel well too. That makes them perfect for Summer picnics or any other type of al fresco dining.

If you like baking with fruit why don’t you take a look at my other sweet delights Easy Strawberry Yogurt Cake or Chocolate Brioche Pudding with Raspberries.

And if you are after some delightful picnic snacks try Asparagus and Parma Ham Twists with Pesto or perhaps Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Turkey Rolls.

    These are so my kind of blondies! I just love to addition of the raspberries. My husband and I are always arguing over the fact that I make something he really really likes but then I add fruit and spoil it for him so I know his reaction to these but I would be quite happy and just eat them all! Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice

      Thank you Monika 😊 They really are so easy and definitely delicious. Raspberries give a bit if tartness to the bake which works well against sweetness of white chocolate.

    Ooh I love brownies & blondies, and this is such a great flavour combination Jo. Love that you added some almond in there. I had to chuckle at your stash of chocolate – it resonated with me for some reason 😉

    these look so delicate and delicious Jo. I have to confess that I’ve never made blondies. Plenty of brownies – probably way too many brownies for one lifetime 🙂 But never blondies – so I’ll have to give them a try 🙂 #brilliantblogposts

      Thanks Jenny! 🙂 They so are! It definitely is kiddie friendly recipe and so quick and easy too. Final product is a bit wasted on my kids though as they sit there patiently digging the raspberries out of their blondies… (sigh!) Apparently they don’t like “the bits”. Never mind, can’t please them all! 😉 xx
