Today was Day #8 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

I enjoyed Tate's Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies so much that I wanted to include their Gluten-Free brownie bars this week, so I ordered some. And, once again, a 7-day theme week, has grown by a few days.

When I was young, my mom used to make butterscotch brownies. These were also called blonde brownies, or "blondies."

This Gluten Free Blondie from Tate's Bake Shop (Southampton, NY) contained 1.) brown sugar, 2.) butter and 3.) semi-sweet chocolate chips -- in that order, followed by a list of natural ingredients. Almond flour and walnut bits gave these Blondie a slightly nutty taste and texture.

At 510 calories for the whole blondie, this was not a low-calorie item. But then, it doesn't pretend to be. The label suggested that this very rich bar be divided into 3 servings. So, find a knife, cut this into thirds and try to resist eating all three pieces yourself. I dare you.
