Chocolate Chip Apricot Blondies
A nice and fruity variation on brownies with a hint of maple syrup.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash ground nutmeg
3/4 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt or soy yogurt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2/3 cup finely diced dried apricots
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, preferably cane-juice sweetened
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, optional
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the first four (dry) ingredients.
3. Make a well in the center and pour in the yogurt and syrup. Stir until well mixed. Stir in the apricots, chocolate chips, and optional walnuts.
4. Transfer the mixture to a lightly oiled 9- by 9-inch baking pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center tests clean (with the exception melted chocolate). Cool until just warm, and then cut into 12 squares to serve.
