M & M Blondies

One of the easiest things to make in a solar oven is bar cookies.  This recipe is very rich, so cut the squares small — after all, you can always have another.

M & M Blondies

  • 1/2 cup + 2 TBSP butter (total of 10 TBSP)

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 TBSP regular white sugar

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup desiccated coconut (fresh won’t work)

  • 3/4 cup M&M’s + a few more for the top

Pre-heat the solar oven while preparing the ingredients.

Heat the butter until melted – either stove top or solar — until it begins to brown, then let the butter cool slightly, until just barely warm.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the browned butter and sugars.  Stir in the egg, vanilla, and salt.  Stir in the flour, and coconut.  When the batter is well blended, stir in the M&M’s.

Pour the batter into an 8×8 inch prepared pan (I sprayed mine with Baking Pam) and smooth the top.  Sprinkle with the additional M&M’s.  Bake in solar oven for about 2 -2 1/2 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let the blondies cool and cut into squares.

  1. I don’t have a sweet tooth — which means lots more for my sister. These are great. Gonna make some this weekend to see what I have to do for the market. It opens this April and I’m working on faster recipes. The window of time is like zilch — 9:30am to 11am, if I want to give out samples. Grrrrr.
