Maple Walnut Blondies

The perfect fall treat with oatmeal, walnuts, and loads of maple flavor!

Confession time: I don't really like maple flavored anything. I prefer the fake maple syrup for breakfast foods. The smell of maple, to me, is gross and I hate how sticky it is. However, I am married to someone who loves maple entirely too much. He made a homebrew with maple (it was an oatmeal porter) and enjoys literally all the maple things. I made this recipe for him (and the kids). I did try one to see if maybe it would be yummy because I love blondies and I like all the elements of these blondies except the maple. Unfortunately, these were not for me. I couldn't finish one bite. So why on earth would I post a recipe I didn't like? My family devoured them. I have talked briefly about how Nick is doing a keto diet. He is fairly strict about carbs and he decided to have a cheat day and ate three of them. So if that is any indication, from someone who loves maple, that these maple walnut blondies are amazing, I don't know what is!

While I wasn't a fan of the blondies, something about these Maple Bars was just too good and I ate more than I should have. I would love to make this Maple Walnut Fudge from Shugary Sweets - I know my husband would LOVE it.
