Soft and gooey Strawberry White Chocolate Blondies. Made with nutty browned butter, sweet and juicy strawberries, strawberry jam, and white chocolate. Then generously glazed with a sweet, thick, and creamy strawberry icing. There’s really nothing not to love about these seasonal blondies. Brown butter and strawberry jam keep these blondies incredibly flavorful, soft, gooey, and so delicious. They’re sweet, salty, heavy on the strawberries, and so delicious.

I didn’t always bake with strawberries, but I’ve always loved a sweet, ripe spring strawberry. Now that I’ve grown up I do actually bake with them, and creating spring berry recipes has been so much fun. I’ve been getting more and more excited every season.

This year, I’m having the most fun creating new recipes that aren’t like any others I’ve shared. I think we all know that when it comes to sweets, I lean towards everything chocolate.

But ohhh how I adore these blondies. I made them just this week and had to share them immediately.

I’ve made a few blondie bars in the past, coffee chocolate chip, peanut butter, and even apple, but these are the most different for me.

They have three different strawberries – fresh spring berries, sweet strawberry jam, and dried strawberry powder. Triple berry! And extra yummy.

I wanted these to have the most incredible strawberry flavor – and real strawberry flavor. So many strawberry desserts have everything but real strawberries and just a lot of pink food coloring. I always try my best to avoid that.

I used strawberry jam swirled throughout the dough. Then fresh strawberries baked on top and freeze-dried strawberries in the icing.

Start out by browning salted butter on the stove. Browning the butter really adds a rich nutty flavor to these bars and makes them just a touch cozier. Once the butter is browned, remove it from the stove, and dump in all the remaining ingredients.

You’ll first add honey to sweeten, then a couple eggs, vanilla, whole wheat flour, lemon zest, and sea salt. Once the dough is mixed, swirl in the jam and a big handful of white chocolate chips.

This makes up the dough. Simple. Simple. But trust me, it’s going to be good.

Spread the dough out into a pan. Now, take the chopped strawberries and sprinkle them on top of the dough, then bake. As the bars bake away, you’ll have incredible wafts of sweet berries and butter in the air. Wonderful spring/summer scents.

For the icing, mix melted butter with sweet sugar, freeze-dried strawberry powder, and vanilla. For the strawberry powder, you can buy it on Amazon, or make your own by blending dried strawberries into a fine powder. You can do this in a food processor or blender.

You don’t have to make the icing, the blondies are wonderful on their own. But the icing makes these not only prettier but really good.

Perfect blondies to bake for both spring and summer, and especially for upcoming Mother’s Day (it’s May 14th!). They’re pretty hard not to love.

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
    2. Add the butter to a medium pot set over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown, until it smells toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl. Let cool 5 minutes. Whisk in the honey, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing until just combined.
    3. Add spoonfuls of the jam to the dough. Sprinkle over the white chocolate. Then, fold the jam and chocolate into the dough, creating swirls of strawberry jam throughout.
    4 Spread the dough out into the prepared dish. Evenly sprinkle the fresh strawberries over the dough. Bake for 22-25 minutes, just until set in the center.
    5. To make the icing, mix all ingredients in a bowl with 3-4 tablespoons of strawberry powder. Add additional milk to thin, as needed.
    6. Drizzle the glaze over the bars. Let set for 5 minutes. Cut into bars, snack, and enjoy!


To Make Strawberry Powder: In a blender or food processor, process 3 cups freeze-dried strawberries into a fine powder.

    1. Hi Nancy,
      Thanks for trying this recipe and sharing your review, sorry to hear they were not enjoyed. Please let me know if there is anything that I can help with! xT

  1. Hello, is the measurement for honey 1/3 cup? Or 1/3 – 1/2c based on preference? 1/3c honey OR 1/2c brown sugar? 😬

    1. Hi Cara,
      It’s 1/3-1/2 cup of honey or you can use 1/3-1/2 cup of brown sugar. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

    These are so delicious!! The sweetness level and strawberry flavor are perfect! Thank you so much for creating such a delicious strawberry dessert.
    I will definitely be making these frequently during our strawberry season 🙂

    1. Hey Ashley,
      Perfect!! So glad to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks for trying it out! Happy Monday! xT

    1. Thanks so much Katie! There’s no lemon zest in this recipe:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

    I had all the ingredients on hand except for the fresh strawberries, so I decided to forge ahead without them. The results were fantastic! So, so good!! Not too sweet, and bursting with strawberry flavor. Loved by the whole family! (I also cut the frosting recipe on half, and it was plenty of frosting for my taste!) I will definitely make these again..and include the fresh berries next time. Another hit, Tieghan! Thank you!

    1. Hey Janet,
      Happy Monday!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it! xx

    Just had a square straight out of the oven and OH MY GOODNESS it is SO good. I used raspberries instead of strawberries, no lemon, and 1/2 cup of honey. My only critique is that it is so sweet without the frosting already, so I’d just skip it. I’m making this for my very picky mother in law the next time I see her; I’m so confident she’ll love them too. This recipe is going in my tin!

    1. Hey Emily,
      Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback! Glad to hear they worked well with the raspberries:) xx

    This recipe tasted AMAZING, but technically it did not quite work out for me. I believe two things went wrong, one is my fault, the other I believe is the recipe. I did not realize pastry flour was a different type of flour, so I used whole wheat flour, which made them really crumbly. The other thing was that I used the 1 1/2 cups of fresh sliced strawberries and they released so much liquid as they baked that there was almost no rise in the brownie. I should have paid more attention to Teighan’s photos and put fewer strawberries on top. I am going to remake these tomorrow with the corrections above.

    That said, the strawberry flavor is unreal between the jam, fresh berries, and the icing! Can’t wait to have them again!

    1. Hi Valerie,
      Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback! Yes, try the pastry flour and see how that works for you:) I hope this helps! 🍓

  6. I was wondering if you can make the glaze as written and just omit the strawberry powder? Thank you. I can’t wait to try these.

    1. Hi Karen,
      The glaze will not have a strawberry flavor, but yes that would work for you! You would probably need to add a touch more powdered sugar. I hope you love this recipe! xT

    WOW 🤩 These are OUTSTANDING! It’s cold and rainy today in MN and I just got in from farm chores and the bars were done. Delicious. Omg these are the best thing I’ve eaten in quite awhile. I had everything on hand and they came together quickly. Thank you!

    1. Hey Elizabeth,
      Happy Sunday!! 🍉🍓🫐 I am thrilled to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it and your comment! xT

    1. Hey Emily,
      I think those should be okay, I would thaw them first and drain any extra liquids:) Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

  8. I noticed you said 1/3 to 1/2 c honey. Which did you find better for the final product? I like to bake with honey, but sometimes it can be tricky. They look great.

    1. Hey Susan,
      It just depends how sweet you would like these to be, if you prefer more sweetness then use more honey:) I hope you love this recipe, let me know if you give it a try! xT

  9. These look so amazing!! I love that you offer the whole wheat pastry option ( my preference!) and that you recommend honey, since I’m considering going off refined sugar for the summer for health reasons! I know from practice that subbing chopped cacao butter for white choc should work pretty well and if I mix up some chia jam for them when I pick perfect local berries this Spring— these are going to be amazing! Obviously I’ll make them just as written for parties lol…I don’t expect anyone else to try a sugar-free Summer! The pictures are. Beyond words. You are such an artist! 🥳

    1. Thanks so much for your kind message Toni! Let me know if you give these a try, I hope they are delish! xT

  10. Do you have a recommendation for a brand of strawberry powder to use? I would love to make these but have never purchased that before!

    1. Hey Celeste,
      Your local grocery store should carry either the strawberry powder or freeze dried strawberries to grind into a powder. I’ve hear great things about the Trader Joe’s one, I don’t have that near me but you could give it a try! I hope you love this recipe! xx

        1. 5 stars
          Ended up making these, and they’re absolutely delicious! Made the recipe exactly as written, with only two adjustments – I baked for 10 minutes longer than written, and I couldn’t find strawberry powder, and I don’t like using a food processor if I don’t have to, so I put freeze dried strawberries on top of the glaze. Made for a nice slight crunch to add in another texture. Thanks for the recipe, we are devouring them tonight!

          1. Hey Celeste,
            Happy Wednesday!! Thanks a bunch for trying this recipe and your comment, so glad to hear it was a hit! xx

  11. You’ll first add honey to sweeten, then a couple eggs, vanilla, whole wheat flour, lemon zest, and sea salt. Once the dough is mixed, swirl in the jam and a big handful of white chocolate chips.
    Just curious about the whole wheat flour. In the recipe it calls for all purpose flour. I love using whole wheat flour but I know some people do not. These look delicious.

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      You can actually use either, but I fixed the directions for that:) Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xT

      1. Just FYI – online text still references whole=wheat flour and lemon zest:
        “You’ll first add honey to sweeten, then a couple eggs, vanilla, whole wheat flour, lemon zest, and sea salt. Once the dough is mixed, swirl in the jam and a big handful of white chocolate chips.”
        I’m making these today so just noticed in the recipe 🙂
