Blondies or Cookie Bars?

To me these were two different baked treats, Apparently not. Whilst researching different blondies recipes, I keep coming across cookie bar recipes. Which then got me to thinking what the difference was. Turns out not very much.

If you google either gluten free blondies or gluten free cookie bars both types of recipes will come up. When you read through the list of ingredients for both, they are pretty similar. Inclusion, regardless what you call them they turn out to be the same product. For blondies they tend to be a bit more fudgy and under baked. Then for cookie bars they are bake a bit longer and have a more cake like texture. In the end i baked these gluten free cookie bars for a little longer to give the a more cake like texture.

Then chop your strawberries into halves or quarters if they are quite big. Add in 3/4 of the white chocolate and 3/4 of your strawberries to the batter. Mix everything together until combined.

Scoop the batter out into a small lined deep rectangle baking dish. Smooth the top over with a spatula or spoon. Sprinkle over the reserved white chocolate and strawberries, lightly push them down into the batter. Bake at 180c for between 10-14 minutes depending on how gooey you want the centre to be.
