Guiltless Chocolate Chip and Butterscotch Blondies

Blondies are great right?  That wonderful chewiness and great buttery flavor are just to die for.  I love blondies, which is no surprise as I like pretty much all sweet things, but I can’t make them very often or I would eat them all.  So I have adapted this recipe to make a healthier, guilt-free blondie.  This recipe can help get your sweet fix without all the guilt.

I cut the sugar and fat content in half by using nonfat yogurt and Splenda sugar and brown sugar blends.  This is my first time using the Splenda sugar blends.  I have used the regular Splenda before, but never for baking as I was nervous as how it would turn out.  But these turned out great and I will happily use the Splenda sugar blends again because who can turn down saving half of the calories from sugar?

Recipe adapted from browneyedbaker at http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2010/08/18/chewy-chunky-blondies/

Ingredients:

2 Cups all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda                                                                     

1/2 tsp salt

1 stick of butter

1/4 Cup of nonfat vanilla yogurt (plain would also work)

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 Cup Splenda sugar blend

3/4 Cup Splenda brown sugar blend

1 Cup chocolate chips

1 Cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Spray or butter a 9×13 inch baking pan.  In a large mixing bowl or in a stand mixer, cream the butter, yogurt, vanilla, and sugar blends together.  Add eggs one by one and mix on medium speed for a minute after each egg.  Sift together dry ingredients.  Gradually add dry ingredients to batter and stir until well combined.  Stir in chocolate and butterscotch chips.  Spread dough into baking pan with a spatula.  Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool before cutting.  This makes about 36 bars.

I hope you will enjoy these blondies as much as I have, and at 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus per serving, how can you pass these up?
