Cinnamon Blondies

by Megan on March 23, 2010

Sometimes I tell my niece things like, “I’m growing my hair so long because I want to be a mermaid when I grow up” or “I want to be as pretty as YOU when I grow up”.

She tells me that I’m already grown up.


I ate one of these before dinner. I couldn’t resist. I guess being a grown up is ok sometimes.


These are spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon and dreamy like a cookie.

They are also the first blondie that I successfully made! So make these! Take a nutmegabite.


Cinnamon Blondies {makes about 16 blondies}

Recipe from Sugarlaws


  • 1 1/3 all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/8 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t cream of tartar
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8-inch pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream of tartar and salt. In another medium bowl using an electric mixer cream together the butter and sugars. When combined add the egg and vanilla and mix until blended together nicely.
  3. Add the flour mixture and stir until mixed completely. Spread batter in the bottom of the prepared pan, evening it with a spatula. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean when inserted in the center. Let the pan cool completely before lifting the bars out of the pan with the parchment paper. Slice into 16 squares.
  4. Eat one before dinner.


I bought some whole nutmeg for moments like these. Look at the squiggly inside!
I’m into it.

Megan, is that a Liberty of London serving platter??

It is!! I was trying so hard to show that the bottom is yellow. 🙂

A cinnamon and nutmeg blondie would definitely be worth sneaking before supper. 🙂

Sounds like the right thing to make with that lonely egg sitting in my fridge.


Megan (megabite) March 24, 2010 at 12:28 pm

I bet that egg would be proud to be a part of these blondies. 🙂

I just made these and they are SO GOOD. I sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top before I put them on the oven. They taste like snickerdoodle bars. Thanks for the recipe!

Ooh good idea with the cinnamon sugar sprinkling! I’m glad you like them!
