  1. Hi Jenn! These look delicious, just curious if I could sub another nut butter I have on hand (like sunflower or peanut) for the cashew butter?

    1. Hi, June. I just equal parts of cinnamon and sugar…about 1 tbsp each should be more than plenty to sprinkle the tops of these blondies! If you try this recipe, I would love it if you would leave me a comment on my blog post letting me know how they turned out for you! Thanks!!
