Blondies, the antithesis to brownies substitutes brown sugar for granulated sugar and takes on a "vanilla" appearance as oppose to chocolate. Pairing the banana with white chocolate gave this bar a wonderful flavor without being overly sweet; which I like very much. Blondies can be frosted, but I chose to sprinkle some dried banana chips with a dusting of confectioners' sugar. Great for a cup of tea!
