    Tomorrow’s Kids Cook class is all about honey.  I searched for a dish that featured honey and would be appropriate for us to make and package as a Valentine gift.  Enter honey blondies.

    Really a short dense cake, these treats are sweetened by honey alone.  They are delicious and super easy to make.  I baked them in a heart shaped silicone mold for this occasion, though they bake up just fine in an 8×8 inch pan as well.  Chocolate chips would be an tasty addition.

    I received discounted honey for this recipe from the fine folks at Honey Health Farms at the Clintonville Winter Farmer’s Market. Visit their detailed website to learn more about honey harvesting and benefits.

      Cute! They look tasty, too…wonder if they would work out with almond or coconut flour?

      These are so cute! I love that they’re made with honey. I’m fortunate to have a source for fabulous local raw honey – and yet I don’t use it nearly enough. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
