I often crave salty things more than sweet. But salty and sweet together, now that is a heavenly combination like with salted peanut butter and honey! I remember as a kid, my Mom would put peanut butter and honey sandwiches in my lunch. Or she would put it on toast, and tell me that it was because she didn't like all the processed un-natural sugar in the jelly at the store. It was delicious, and it is a combination that brings me back to childhood. I used to love honey roasted peanuts as well, and now sometimes when I make sweet spiced nuts I use honey as the sweetener. Today I was sitting on my break eating my tofu and raw beet salad, and for some reason I became really hungry for honey peanut butter toast. Then I started thinking about the combination of honey and peanut butter and thought it would be really good in blondies!
Even better with a little salty thrown into the mix with a little fleur de sel! So this afternoon I got to work creating these salted peanut blondies! I decided to bake them in a round tart pan to be different.
