Everybody knows and loves the classic brownie. The perfect combination of chocolate and gooeyish texture. It's a staple at every bake sale. But some bake sales need a mix up. That's when the Blondie comes. Instead of a chocolate base, a Blondie can be like a chocolate chip cookie or a butterscotch brownie. There is an endless amount of combinations.

But what about spinach and cheese? It's not a dessert, it's not sweet, can it work? I would say so! I grew up with spinach and cheese in my "brownies", making them more like blondies. They were always in my hand or my mother's when walking up to a party. Yep, upon request we would always bring her crowd pleasing Spinach Blondies. 

These green treats are filled with cheese, onions and of course, spinach. They are the perfect snack to grab on the go or the newest appetizer at your next party! They take the Blondie to a whole different level.

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together in a bowl.

Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes. When cooled cut into squares (like brownies!) Depending on how you cut them, these treats can fill the bellies of more than 12 people. It's up to you!
