Raspberry Blondies

I have a freezer full of raspberries. And seeing as how my backyard raspberry patch is starting to bud I need to start using up last year’s berry stash to make way for the new crop. Enter in these ridiculously delicious Raspberry Blondies. Fresh or frozen, gather up those juicy berries and make these blondies stat! They’re the perfect summer treat.

Bursting with raspberries. Riddled with white chocolate chips. And positively perfect with a hint of almond. These raspberry blondies come together in a snap and will wow a crowd. The sweetness of the white chocolate balances beautifully with the tart raspberry. Chopped salted almonds add a fun crunch element and compliment the overall flavor palette of these raspberry blondies. I’ll bet dollars to donuts you won’t be able to eat just one.

What Is A Blondie?

Everyone knows what a brownie is, but its little sister, the blondie, is a bit more mysterious. It’s not a white chocolate brownie, in fact, there’s no chocolate in it unless you add some sort of chocolate chip or chunk. A blondie has a rich creamy almost caramel-type flavor and fudgy texture. Much like a brownie though, a blondie has a high fat to flour ratio causing that heavenly melt-in-your-mouth sensation in every bite.

How To Make Raspberry Blondies

I experimented a bit with these blondies. In the first batch, I creamed the butter and sugar together. With the second batch, I melted the butter first and then creamed it with the sugar. Both ways worked and were totally yummy but the second one using melted butter was oh so fudgy and creamy.

After the melted butter and sugar are combined, the remaining wet ingredients go in. Shortly followed by the dry ingredients. Last, but not least, in goes the white chocolate chips, chopped almonds, and raspberries.

Should I use fresh or frozen raspberries?

You can use either fresh or frozen raspberries for these raspberry blondies. I’ve got two tips to keep your raspberries as plump as possible. The first tip, add the raspberries at the very end after the white chocolate chips and chopped almonds have been incorporated. Very gently and gingerly fold the raspberries in with a spatula. Don’t mix too long or else the raspberries will begin to break apart.

Second tip is if you are using frozen raspberries, do not thaw them out. Add them in straight from the freezer. But be aware that this will cause the blondies to need few more minutes in the oven due to the added moisture.

How To Cut Raspberry Blondies

I would not judge you if you decided to forgo cutting said raspberry blondies and went straight in with a fork. They’re that good! But if you do want to cut them up here are a few helpful hints. Make sure the raspberry blondies are completely cooled before cutting them. Not a little bit cool, I’m talking 100% cooled. I pop mine into the fridge for at least an hour if at all possible. This helps them firm up.

Another helpful way to make serving and slicing easier is to line the baking pan with parchment paper. This ensures that removal is 1000x easier and cleaner. Make sure that there is a little bit of parchment paper overhang on each long side of the pan. Run a knife along the edge not covered with parchment paper to ensure the raspberry blondies are not baked on and gently lift up evenly on both overhang parchment pieces.

Raspberry Blondie Baking Time!

Have we covered all the raspberry blondie bases? I sure hope so because these bars are too good not to bake. Seriously. I ate an embarrassing amount of these. But it was all in the name of science, right?! Regardless, grab that freezer bag of raspberries I know you have stashed way down in the depth of your deep freeze and bake these bad-boy blondies up!

Description

Melt-in-your-mouth raspberry blondies bursting with summer berries, white chocolate chips, and chopped almonds. These easy and delicious one-bowl blondies are the perfect summer treat!


Ingredients

Scale

Raspberry Blondies

  • 1 cup dairy-free salted butter, melted

  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 large egg, room temperature

  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour *can be substituted with gluten-free 1:1 baking blend

  • 2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup dairy-free white chocolate chips

  • ½ cup almonds, chopped

  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • optional: extra white chocolate chips for drizzle

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF degrees and prepare a 9×13-inch pan with non-stick baking spray and parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment combine the melted butter and sugar on high and mix for 2 minutes.

  3. Add in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract, and almond extract and mix on high for another 2 minutes.

  4. Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder until just combined.

  5. Fold in the white chocolate chips and chopped almonds until just combined.

  6. Gently fold in the fresh or frozen raspberries until just combined. Be careful not to overmix or the raspberries will begin to break apart.

  7. Bake for approx 30-35 minutes or until the edges are a light golden brown and the very center appears just slightly under-baked. **see note if using frozen raspberries

  8. Let fully cool in the baking tray. Once cool remove the raspberry blondies and slice them into 24 servings.

  9. Melt and drizzle white chocolate over the top of the fully cooled blondies if desired. Enjoy!
  10. Store leftover blondies in an airtight container for up to 7 days at room temperature.

Notes

* Melt the extra white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until fully melted and smooth. Drizzle over fully cooled raspberry blondies.

** If you are using frozen raspberries, the blondies may require additional baking time. Check for doneness in 5-minute intervals after the 30-minute mark.

  1. This recipe is absolutely fabulous!!! It’s so simple and easy to follow and I could not stop eating them!!! I will most definitely be adding this to my favourites.






    1. Yay! There’s something so good about raspberry and white chocolate together, right?! Thanks for baking these up Carly.

  2. Loved them! I used too deep of a pan so added more bake time. I even forgot them in the over for a bit but though they looked over baked, they were still chewy and delish! Next time I would omit the coarse sea salt. I used fresh raspberries- so yummy!!






    1. Thank you for baking these up Olivia! Raspberry and white chocolate are made for each other, right?!

  3. I had every intention of taking pretty pictures of these after I made them but I couldn’t beat my family to them… they were so good we basically inhaled the whole tray! I will be making these again!
    (I did leave out the almonds due to nut allergies)






    1. Haha, that’s exactly what happened to these blondies when I made them for my family too! Thanks for trying the recipe and sharing Rachel.

  4. I would love to try this recipe.. but I don’t have any raspberries! I do have frozen blueberries and dried cranberries also dried strawberries.. do you think any of these might work?

    1. Hi Garima, I think the frozen blueberries and/or dried cranberries would be spectacular! Let me know if you give it a shot.

      1. Hey Katie! The blondies turned out fantastic! My kids polished them off.. I would go easy on the salt though the next time ?this one’s a keeper ?






  5. These are delectable and will be a regular for me now! I didn’t have almond extract so I subbed more vanilla; I subbed salted caramel chips for the white choc. Next time I want to try a mix of raspberry and lemon with white chocolate!






    1. Oh my word Brianna! Lemon, raspberry, and white chocolate sound out-of-this-world delicious. Let me know if you make them!

  6. These are SO good! I didn’t have any almonds so I left those out but the almond extract added that perfect touch! Definitely will be making these again.






    1. I so appreciate you taking the time to bake these blondies up and share with me about them Bailee!

  7. These Raspberry Blondies are indeed ridiculously delicious !! I officially have an addiction now!
    Great recipe, thanks






  8. These Raspberry Blondies are indeed ridiculously delicious !
    I officially have an addiction now ! Great recipe thanks.






  9. These are SO DELICIOUS.. and I’m not needing the dairy free side but I actually LOVE the taste..

    I used the nutlex brand here an Australia and it worked out fabulously..

    THANKS Katie for another fabulous recipe ?






    1. Yay! I am so glad to hear you loved them, Monique. I’ve never heard of Nutlex but am glad it worked. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Everything about these raspberry blondies….perfection! So delicious and simple to make.
    My family loved them!






  11. Made these 3 times now and each time they are devoured within a day by my family. Great recipe Katie.






    1. I am thrilled to hear you and your family love them so much. Thanks for baking this recipe up and sharing.

  12. I’m counting down the days for this heat to be over so I can bake another batch. Summer dessert perfection Katie.






  13. Absolutely amazing. The texture and flavour is outstanding.

    I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfectly. My family loved these blondes!

    Was a huge hit at a friends wedding when I made it for a part of her dessert buffet!

    Will be making this again and again






  14. I think I failed your recipe; I used 2 flax eggs (egg allergies), cooked an extra 10 minutes the majority of the 9×13 pan did not cook. Do you think the flax egg would do this ?? Extremely oily as well
    The areas where it did cook were amazing the flavor so good

    If you can help me with this riddle I would greatly appreciate!!

    1. Ugh, what a bummer that is when a recipe doesn’t turn out. Let’s problem-solve! First, did you use fresh or frozen raspberries? Frozen raspberries will require more baking time. Second, I would recommend only using 1 flax egg as you only need to replace 1 full egg and 1 egg yolk. Third, double check your dry ingredients measurements are correct. And last, blondies are intended to be a moist chewy fudgy texture very similar to a brownie. Let me know if I can help with anything else! ?

      1. Thank you for replying. I used fresh raspberries, I was wondering about the two flax. I did go over my ingredients as I was making these for my daughters wedding. I will try again. Thank you for the suggestions greatly appreciate
