White Chip Granola Blondies

I seem to be on quite a “bar” kick lately.

Can I tell you why?

Because I’m lazy.

Bars are easy.

There is only one batch.  One pan.  And usually, one bowl involved.

Plus, they are incredibly versatile.


And just so you know I am getting ready to go on a trip…all the way across the country to Seattle.

And because packing and also the shopping for the packing takes many, many hours, sustenance in the form of a bar cookie is really the right way to go.

Especially if there is granola involved, because that not only makes them delicious, but it also quantifies cookies as health food.

These bars have you covered for breakfast…hello granola.  Snack…yes, more granola.  Or you can even be one of those girls who eats a health bar in place of a meal…HELLO GRANOLA.

So basically you can eat these for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time and still be one of those girls.

I do it for the people…

White Chip Granola Blondies.

PhotobucketStart with, yes, granola.  Any kind you like…it all works.

PhotobucketThen you mix it up with some butter and brown sugar.

Oh yeah and white chocolate chips…can’t forget those.

Spread it in a pan and bake.

PhotobucketThis is what you end up with…

These are good.  Like really good.

And I may or may not have exaggerated on the health benefits here, but who’s counting?

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Mmmmmm…..yum. This looks totally amazing. I’m just starring at the screen looking at how delicious they look. My mouth is watering.


Perfect combination of sweet, salty and crunchy. I used store bought oats and honey granola. I don’t know that I would eat it for breakfast but it was very good! Dark chocolate sounds good too!

I absolutely love blondies!

Oh man, Shelly. It’s like you know all my weaknesses and created one happy little bar to target them. Have fun in Seattle!

Erika - The Teenage Taste

Have fun in Seattle, Shelly! These granola blondies look amazing – I would totally eat these 24/7 if I made them!


I was once struck by the very same compulsion – to put granola in cookies! I paired ’em with banana and dark chocolate, but I love the idea of white chocolate. I’m such a sucker for white chocolate.


LOVE the addition of Granola in these blondies!

white chocolate chips, granola, and blondies… three of my favorites. And I definitely would choose bars over cookies or cupcakes anyday. One pan and you’re done. No rolling, frosting, piping, batches, etc. Love these, Shelly!

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

I love bars, they are so easy, but just as good as other desserts!!


I think these are perfectly acceptable for breakfast since they have granola in them. Did I say acceptable? I meant necessary. Yum!


Everything about these blondies sound delicious, except for the white chocolate chips. I am slightly allergic to them and afraid to ever eat them. The rest of this recipe sounds so good though. I might try using butterscotch chips instead of the white chocolate chips.

Nothing wrong with getting on a particular food kick. I call that inspiration! These look delicious.

Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts

mmm, these look yummy!!


I’m not counting! These look healthy to me. Bottoms up or…something like that. Great recipe!

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

I love blondies! The addition of granola sounds wonderful . “Healthy” desserts are the best 🙂

Averie @ Averie Cooks

So funny…I made granola yesterday and now I see these! They look awesome! I love blondies of all kinds!

Melissa @ Treats With a Twist

Love it. I love searching for a way to call something healthy when I just want to eat whatever it is without feeling guilty! I’ve mixed granola into muffins too before which was awesome. Great idea, and I love anything with white chocolate chips!


These look fantastic! I think I’ll try them with dark chocolate, though, since I don’t like white chocolate…




I am SO eating these for breakfast! Can’t wait to see you in Seattle! xo


Breakfast, lunch, dinner AND snacks… YES PLEASE! 🙂


Never thought to add granola. Thanks!
