Sometimes I get so busy making a nice dinner that I run out of time for a nice dessert. I do not serve dessert very often, but when I do, I want it to be healthy, and be ready in minutes.
I have the easiest dessert ever for you.
One problem though with this dessert. You need to buy one ingredient at Trader Joes. TJs, as we call it around here, is one of my favorite stores. They have so many great products, with healthy ingredients, and at a great price. What more can shoppers ask for?
Last week while shopping, I noticed a new dessert mix. It was called the Blondie Bar Baking mix. I then looked at the preparation instructions. Add in one egg and one stick of butter. Seriously, one stick of butter? No way, no how. I think I use one whole stick of butter in about 5 months in my house. I knew I could make this mix better, so I still bought it with the intention of making it my way.
I tried a few different combos with healthier ingredients. But the best combo by far was easy. Put the Blondie Bar mix in a bowl, then stir in one egg (you can easily sub in egg beaters or a flax or chia egg here) and 1/2 cup of apple sauce. That is it! Stir it just till blended and then put in a well sprayed 8×8 pan. I made this in my toaster oven and it was ready in 26 minutes.
This is what it looked like before baking.
There is no photo of the after blondie bars because they were almost all eaten up. All the kids loved them. No complaints means a successful dessert. No one said these tasted healthy and the proof is in the empty pan.
Leave me a comment if you have an easy and healthy dessert you like to make for you family.
