Blondie Brownies with Hidden Veggies? The Kids Will Love This School Snack

With the children back in school parents everywhere are looking for healthy school snack ideas and I have a fantastic answer! Each year I make these Blondie Brownies with hidden veggies and each time the kids are ecstatic with their ‘dessert’. I am equally pleased with the fact that these desserts are healthy and jammed with veggies.

There is nothing like pulling one over on my girls to make me feel accomplished! A resounding cheer is lifted in my brain with each bite.

  1. Omg! Yum! I can’t bake but I try to eat clean and eat alot of Legumes. These were perfect and not hard to make-no guilt!!!!

  2. Wow thank you very much..I have diabetes but if I can eat brownies that I love because the are made with vegetables….heaven

  3. This recipe looks a lot healthier than a recipe for blonde brownies that I have in one of my cookbooks! I love the fact that there is wheat germ and oat bran in this. I use whole wheat flour a lot in my baking. Thank you for this recipe…I will give this one a try and let you know how they turned out….and how fast they disappeared!!

  4. Navy Bean puree is definitely a different ingredient – my family loves treat and it would be great to sneak some nutritional value in there so I think I will have to try these out! Thanks for the recipe!
