Recipe: Spent Grain Blondies

Since our Spent Grain Brownies were such a success, we thought we'd give Spent Grain Blondies a try. Upon first glance, this recipe, which is packed full of chocolate and butterscotch chips, may appear sickeningly sweet - but we promise these Spent Grain Blondies are just sweet enough. The spent grain flour adds a fantastic nuttiness and hearty texture in addition to the chopped pecans (or walnuts).



  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup spent grain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 oz chocolate, coarsely chopped (roughly 1 cup chocolate chunks)
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. In separate mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy, add egg and vanilla.
  4. Add flour mixture in three parts, mixing until combined. Fold in chocolate chunks, nuts and butterscotch chips.
  5. Pour batter into greased pan. Bake 22-25 minutes. Let cool before serving.
