White Chocolate Cookie Dough Protein Blondies


Question. Do you like white chocolate chip cookies? Okay. If you do, these are a must make for you. For me, these reminded me of white chocolate chip cookies in soft, gooey blondie form! There is Sweet Spreads white chocolate coconutter in the blondie batter which, in my opinion, adds that smooth, silky element to this treat. These also have an added bonus of protein powder :) Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/3 cup xylitol or baking stevia
¼ cup plain greek yogurt
1 egg white
1 tsp. butter extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup white chocolate chips, optional

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a small, square baking dish (I used a 5x8 inch dish) with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine greek yogurt, sweet spreads, egg white, extracts, and maple syrup in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. In a separate bowl, stir together the remainder of the ingredients. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until well combined.

3. Spoon batter into baking dish and smooth down. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until center is cooked. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes. Cut into 8 even squares and drizzle with more sweet spreads, if desired. Enjoy immediately.
