So after working on this recipe for a quite a while I have FINALLY perfected the perfect blondie recipe (for those wondering what on earth the difference is between a brownie and a blondie, not much- other than there is less added cacao in blondies, but the same if not more amount of deliciousness haha).
I also must say a thank you to one of my amazing Instagram followers who came up with the name ' 'Balanced Blondies' for these delicious morsels too!
Honestly this is officially my new FAVOURITE hormone/ PCOS friendly snack to date!... I ate the whole batch (with a little bit of help from my hubby Jesse) in less than 2 hours, not that I am advising anyone to do that haha!
So incase you were wondering why these babies are so hormone friendly heres some more info that might help persuade you to give this recipe a try.
