chocolate chip blondies

z 320
I was in the mood for something sweet last night, but wanted to watch what I was eating as well. I have finally gotten back into the swing of exercising {even started running a bit!} and so I didn't want to ruin my week with a big plate of dessert.
Enter in a Weight Watchers recipe.
I changed it up a tiny bit, using Sucanat instead of brown sugar.
And I used regular butter instead of light butter.
I mean, seriously.. who keeps that kind of thing around?
Certainly not me. :)

Anyways, even with my adjustments,
it turned out delicious!
The perfect treat in the evening if you don't want to completely ruin your diet. :)

come to find out,
the perfect breakfast treat as well.
Does it make me a bad mom if I gave Andrew a little square of it after his breakfast this morning???? ;)
