White chocolate, coconut and almond blondies

White chocolate, coconut and almond blondies

As a recipe developer I have days where I cook up to 15 recipes in a sitting. I have flavors, combinations and textures going through my head constantly but every now and then, there are ideas that come up that make me feel like I am HestonBlumenthalBrilliant. I mean clearly, I’m not, but in that moment I really feel like I’ve come up with something brilliant. That’s what happened when one day, after a day of exhausting recipe development, I was lying on the couch thinking about doing blondies for my blog.

I had developed a really killer fudge blondie recipe previously but wanted to add other flavors to it. A blondie, by definition is a white brownie and so it just makes sense to me to include white chocolate in it. I also absolutely LOVE the combination of coconut and almonds with white chocolate (a la those white Raffaello chocolates Ferrero produces), so I decided to develop a recipe using those three key flavors. And man alive, what a good idea that was!

The buttery, vanilla, cakiness of the blondies really requires a bit of texture so the coconut and blanched almonds add both their delicate flavours but also their incredible texture in that way and the pops of white chocolate here and there add that sweet, milkyness like only white chocolate can. Seriously one of the most delicious bars/brownies/cookies/cakes/baked-good- kind-of-things I’ve tasted and makes the most incredibly afternoon treat with a strong cup of tea or coffee.

    These look so good! Lovely photos. I agree about the coffee. Sometimes a good treat seems naked without a cup of joe.
