Ugly Fruit Blondies

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 1 8x8 pan, or about 25 small squares


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Ugly Fruit applesauce or regular applesauce
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cups mixed fresh fruit blueberries, cherries, pomegranate, raspberries, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x8 pan. Melt butter over medium heat until browned: it will foam and sizzle, but ultimately give way to a nutty-smelling liquid.
  • Stir together the butter, applesauce, and sugars until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla until fully incorporated. Add the flour, cinnamon and salt and stir until mostly incorporated--a few streaks is okay. Stir in 1/4 cup white chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and fruit. Bake for 40 minutes, or until browned and tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
