1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup organic salted butter, melted

2. Beat remaining 2 eggs, cream cheese, and powdered sugar, and lemon juice (optional) at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour over cake mix layer.



3. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Notes

I had heard of Bayou Brownies. They are supposedly AMAZING. But, I'm allergic to gluten so I set out to make the gluten-free version. And, I changed the name to "Blondies" because there's no chocolate in them.

They are beyond delicious. And, I really didn't have to alter the recipe that much. I did make everything organic though. That didn't make these any less caloric (they're very rich) but maybe a tad bit healthier. :)
