Chocolate Cherries Blondies

DF, V

Cherries are abundant right now, so why not take advantage of them? Add them to your salads and your desserts.  The combination of chocolate and cherries is just natural synergy, and it would be wrong to not explore it. So let’s make blondies.  They take the crunchy crusts from brownies with the soft chewy interior from cookies…yum!

1 c brown sugar
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c chocolate chips (if dairy free suggested brand: enjoy life)
1 c cherries, quarter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a bowl combine brown sugar and vegetable oil.  Add egg and vanilla, stir until fully incorporated.  In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt, whisk to combine.  Slowly add flour mixture to wet mixture until it just comes together.  Gently mix in chocolate chips and cherries.  Pour mixture into a prepared 8×8 pan, using hands to spread evenly.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
