Mmmm, blondie batter!  Like a mixture between cookie dough and cake batter, but just a little different–not firm like cookie dough and not pourable like cake batter… it’s juuuust right!   But here, I delved deeper into the healthy-doughs-and-batters world by using a different bean–the cannellini bean!
