Cinnamon Blondies


Cinnamon Blondies

** This was previously posted, I have updated the pictures.

We had a very busy weekend here.  Saturday morning my husband and son woke up early to see the Eclipse.  Then my son had his first playdate in Colorado!  I am so happy that he is making friends and adjusting quickly.  Saturday afternoon we went to a snow/ice sculpture event that ended in a parade.  It is amazing what people can do with snow and ice!  And it is always fun to see a parade, especially when Santa is in it!  Sunday we went up into the mountains and went snowshoeing.  It was the perfect weather to be playing outside in the snow.  I hope these warmer temps stick around for awhile!

I saw these Cinnamon Blondies over at From Cupcakes to Caviar a few months ago.  They looked so gooey and delicious!  My 6 year old is a huge cinnamon fan, so I had to make them for him.  I over baked mine by a minute or two, but they were still amazing.  This was my first experience with Cinnamon Chips, and I think I am going to have to go pick up another bag!

  5. How amazing are cinnamon chips?! I use them whenever I get the chance, totally addicted. These look super yummy!!

  6. I haven’t baked with cinnamon chips either, but my mother-in-law makes an awesome cinnamon chip scone I have been itching to make. These look incredible so maybe I’ll have to pick up a couple bags of the chips.
    I am jealous you guys have enough snow there to snowshoe! We probably do up in the mountains but not without an hours drive. Sounds like you had a great weekend!

    • It is an hour for us to get up into the mountains to get to snow too! But for us, we have been 12 hours drive from mountains our whole lives, so 60 minutes is nothing!!

  7. I don’t use cinnamon chips enough, and it’s the perfect season to start!

  8. They look wonderful, I can see why you wanted to make them so much. Buzzed!

  9. I am praying for warmer temps!! I’m freezing my buns off right now in NM!! These cinnamon blondies sound super yummy!!

  10. Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend. Yay for your son’s first play date in CO! These blondies sound delicious. My kind of dessert right there. 😉

  11. I’m such a huge fan of blondies and I bet these taste like a cinnamon roll. They look wonderful, Erin!

  12. Wow! I’m honored that you used my recipe, Erin! Yours look so much better than mine did lol. I UNDER baked mine and they were a bit too gooey but still delicious. I’m so glad you liked them!

  13. I don’t know if I’ve seen cinnamon chips, but I’m on the lookout for them now!

  14. Love Blondies! They look so great!

  15. These blondies look wonderful!! I actually have never baked with cinnamon chips either!

  16. Oh these sound like heaven! We love your peanut butter brownies…which do you like better? I’m seriously drooling at the thought of cinnamon chips!

    • I must say I like the peanut butter brownies better…..but I will pick chocolate and peanut butter over pretty much ANYthing else :)
      My husband is not a big chocolate fan, and he went to town on these!

  17. I love the cinnamon taste and your blondies look delicious! So happy to hear your son had his first playdate. As a mom it must be a big relief that he’s adjusting to the new environment and made new friends. :-)

  18. Looks yummy and full of cinnamon goodness. Cinnamon is so good for you that I would have to eat two. :)

  19. That does sounds like a fun weekend! It’s always nice when you move someplace new and your kids start to make new friends. Anyway, I’ve never seen cinnamon chips before, but I bet they are really good. Great blondies!

  20. I swear I could add cinnamon to anything. I love working with cinnamon chips. They add cinnamon flavor, plus they are sweet so they only add to desserts that are already wonderful. Your bars look delicious! They could be for breakfast right?

  21. There was an eclipse…. I miss everything…>.> pout. Im glad to hear your little boy is making friends!

    These blondies sound insane. I love the combination of cinnamon in sweets this time of year!

  22. Aren’t cinnamon chips amazing? Now I’m going to have to pick up a bag so I can make these blondies asap…they look incredible!
