Tips for the best maple blondies

Blondies are one of the most straightforward and easy homemade sweets, but these 5 tis will guarantee you soft, chewy maple blondies every time.

  • Do not over mix: Under NO circumstances should you EVER over mix blondie batter. This maple nut blondie recipe has no frills and is super simple, so any overmixing will really show. Only mix until the batter is just mixed. This will keep the crumb tender and moist!
  • Use high quality vanilla and butter: Just like the cocoa in brownies can make or break the chocolate flavor, the butter and vanilla extract is super important in blondies. Make sure you’re using high quality butter and pure vanilla extract for the best results.
  • Don’t leave out the maple extract: The maple syrup will give these blondies a hint of maple flavor, but in order to get that distinct maple flavor we recommend using maple extract. It will provide all the maple flavor without an excessive amount of sweetness!
  • Toast the nuts: It’s a little extra work, but toasting nuts really brings out all that nutty flavor. Simply spread your nuts out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or in a sauce pan and toast, stirring them every so often so prevent them from burning.
  • Do not over bake: Repeat after me, “An over baked blondie, is a sad, dry blondie.” The blondies should still be under baked in the middle when you take them out of the oven! They will continue to bake as the cool, leaving you with the perfectly baked, soft treat.

Ingredients

for the maple blondies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
  • 4 ounces white chocolate, broken into chunks

for the maple glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 9 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar. Add the egg, maple extract and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl stir together the baking powder, salt, and flour. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and fold together until just mixed and no clumps of flour remain. Fold in the white chocolate and the toasted nuts. Do not over mix.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared pan, spreading into an even layer.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the blondies are golden brown, set on the edges and have puffed up. The middle will still be undercooked, but they will continue to cook as they cool!
  6. While the blondies cool, make the glaze. Combine the powdered sugar, maple syrup, heavy cream or milk, and salt in a bowl. Use a whisk to mix together until creamy and no lumps of sugar remain.
  7. Pour the glaze over the cooled blondies and allow to harden before cutting into 9 squares for big blondies, or 16 squares for smaller portions. Enjoy!

  1. This blondie recipe looks so good! Quick question- If I don’t like pecans, would you suggest omitting them altogether or replacing with another nut? Maybe macadamia?

    • Hi Tanya! You can, but the maple syrup will help to enhance the maple flavor, while the honey will taste like honey. Honey is also slightly thicker than maple syrup so you’ll probably have to thin out your glaze a little bit!
