Candy, cookie chunks, and chocolate chips add a fun flair to these easy Loaded Blonde Brownies. These dessert bars are the perfect way to empty out the pantry.

I have finally come to the realization that I don’t mind running. Again.
Last fall I really started running to get ready for a Tough Mudder. The more running I did, the more I didn’t mind it. This past weekend my husband went mountain biking with a friend. Today he took me back there, and we ran the whole trail. All 3 1/2 miles off road. Booyah!!!
There is something fun about running through the woods early in the morning and listening to the wildlife scurry as you pound past.
And it is even more fun when you send your husband in front of you to clear all the spider webs away first. Hee hee!!!!
Did you see these loaded blonde brownies? They are so full of delicious goodness like caramel candy bars and Oreo cookie chunks! And M&M’s! And chocolate chips! And toffee bits!
Ok, so I pretty much emptied all the half used bags of baking goodies from the pantry into the dough!
I’m pretty sure that brownie right there is the reason I have decided to like running!!!
My sweet tooth has been getting the best of me lately…so with vacation coming up in less than 3 months. I needed a plan.
I have decided on lots of cardio, some weight lifting, and eating right. The eating right part is what I struggle with the most. I like things like Reese’s popcorn munch a little too much. Doggone sweet tooth gets me every.single.time.
But we are remodeling our kitchen this week, so that should keep me from baking for at least a week, right?
And if I don’t bake it, I can’t eat it. Sounds like a good plan to me. So bye, bye brownie goodness, I will see you in while.
But lucky you…I have extra stuff that I have baked and not shared here, so be prepared to keep drooling!
I have to know…does anyone else struggle with a sweet tooth, too??? And if so, what program/workout have you found that works?
I am open for more options to try.
