Chewy Chunky Blondies

I was born with with whitest of white hair and was always so proud that I never once had to color my hair. People would always ask me where I got my color done but never believed me when I told them it was natural.

 Reflective of all aspects of being a parent, my hair has never been the same since giving birth to baby #1. My beautiful blonde hair is now a dark, nasty dirty dishwater color, plus it is also naturally curly. I am assuming both changes are the result of losing almost all of my hair about 3 months after giving birth. After 6 babies, my poor hair follicles have been traumatized and have no memory of the beauty they once produced.
Chewy Chunky Blondies

 These blondies are in honor of my once beautiful, naturally blonde hair. Most days I would admit the sacrifice was well worth it. On the days I want to give all six kiddos back, I just drown my sorrows in a decadent treat like these….

  • Yield: 24 bars 1x


  • 2 C flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 C light brown sugar
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C chocolate chips
  • 1 C butterscotch chips
  • 1 C chopped pecans
  • 1 C shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch pan and set aside.
  2. In your mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add both sugars and beat for another 3 minutes. Add the eggs one by one, beating for 1 minute after each addition, then add vanilla. Reduce the mixer to low and add the flour, baking powder and soda, and salt. Mix just until incorporated. Use a rubber spatula to mix in the chips, nuts and coconut.
  3. Evenly spread batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. The blondies should pull away from the sides of the pan a little and the top should be a nice honey brown. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and cool completely before cutting into bars.

These and the sticky finger bars are both calling my name. I even have Snickers in the house…Hmmm…

The first sentence of your post are the exact words that I have said! No one ever believed that I don’t bleach my hair. My hair has gotten darker as I get older, but I can still say to this day I have never bleach or colored my hair. These chewy chunky blondies are perfect! Thank you
