I so love blondies! Blondies are basically brownies without the cocoa and contain brown sugar instead of white sugar. Brownies seem so “old hat” these days. Few people make them from scratch and you see them everywhere from PTA meetings to school bake sales to church bazaars. Blondies are not seen as often and are really easy to make. I like to experiment with the basic recipe and change it up—sometimes I’ll add walnuts and dried cherries, another time I will do a pecan extreme. This recipe was one of those “let’s see what we have leftover in the fridge” recipes. The result was serendipity—the flavors just came together nicely, with a bit of sweet, a bit of tart, and a bit of crunch.

  5. Add in 1 cup of the pecans, the chocolate chips, the coconut, and the pineapple and stir together until everything is well blended.
