Orange Blondie Brownies

Orange Blondie Brownies

This past Christmas, my family was fortunate to spend a week in Florida.  While I was there I picked up a jar of fruit sweetened tangerine marmalade that has since been sitting in the back of my fridge waiting to be enjoyed.  I am not one to often eat toast and jam and for some reason most of my family doesn't like orange marmalade, despite loving orange juice, so I decided to use it to bake with before it got forgotten behind the cartons of milk and became a science experiment. Since it is March 1st, and although it is snowing, I feel glad that the coldest, stormiest month of the season is (hopefully) behind us, and what better way to celebrate than by baking a little sunshine into my kitchen.  These treats are made with organic whole wheat flour, almond flour,coconut oil and Greek yogurt, so there are plenty of nutrients your body needs and a sweetness your taste buds want. Now if it would only stop snowing!  

Orange Blondie Brownies
The marmalade

1 C. organic whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 C. almond flour  
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 C. coconut oil, melted
1/2 C. orange marmalade
1/3 C. brown sugar
1/3 C. plain full fat Greek yogurt
2 organic eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Zest and juice of one orange

In a medium sized bowl, sift together the whole wheat flour, almond flour, salt and baking soda.  In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients and then slowly add to the dry mixture.  Mix together well.  Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan and bake for about 25 minutes are 350F.  Let cool completely and then serve.
