Banana Cinnamon Chip Blondies

My little sister B (Happy Birthday B!) was in town earlier this year and put in a request for something with banana in them. So I headed over to my Google Reader to see what was available in the blogs that I read. I came across a few appetizing recipes, and chose this one because I had recently aquired some cinnamon chips and had no idea what to do with them.

These little blondies packed quite a punch. The pecans provide a nice crunch. The cinnamon chips compliment that banana blondies perfectly. B, Hubby, and I gobbled these up at an embarassing rate. If you have some cinnamon chips lying around, definitely try these. If you don’t have cinnamon chips already, but see them at the store, buy them so you can make these. Then send me a thank you note for passing along this awesome recipe :)
