Macadamia Nut Blondies: delicious chewy blondies with a nutty crunch. Melt in your mouth!!

I can’t quit you Hawaii.

I’ve always loved macadamia nuts. But after our recent trip to Hawaii, I’ve fallen into a deeper love with those nuts!

And I’m finding myself making recipes that include those delicious nuts any time I can.

Today, I’ve got a simple, classic blondie recipe that’s packed with macadamia nuts. These blondies are chewy and perfect in every way. I love the way a blondie has a natural caramelized flavor. And the macadamia nuts are the perfect mate.

These blondies come in handy as I park myself in front of my television for the month of July.

Why you ask? Because my family is obsessed with following the Tour de France (for those of you about to hit google…it’s a bike race, haha).

So much so that we each have our own teams chosen with our favorite players. If you’re curious, I’m the reigning champion from 2014…so I’ve got to hold my title.

Have I bored you now? Don’t worry, just take a bite of blondies and you’ll just nod your head and smile!
