This recipe should also be called “my snack stack of happiness!” The blondies are almost sugar-free, and include very little fat……BUT they are packed full of flavor. These bars are a coffee lovers dream, and a bourbon lovers best friend. Irish Coffee Blondies will satisfy your sweet tooth, AND encourage you to reach for that second serving!
After enjoying many posts from the Recipe Redux group, I am excited to officially be a part of the action. This is my first post of many with the lovely group! This month the group theme celebrated St. Patty’s Day. Who says we can only celebrate St. Patty’s Day on the 17th right?
Now this may not be a stack of burgers or veggies, but for a girl that needs healthy snacks while traveling…….this really is a stack of happiness. Since I eat every two to three hours to help my blood sugar, these blondies provide that perfect pick-me-up for your mid-day snack!
The original recipe comes from Martha Stewart’s Irish Coffee Bars, and has fat in the recipe that will cover you for a week. Hubby and I devoured the recipe a few years ago when my friend made them for a gathering. For the altered variation, you will have a balanced snack that includes fat, protein, carbs, nutrients……AND booze!!! They are also moist, packed with coffee love, and exclude the sugar glaze on top.
