Snickerdoodle Blondie Brownies


Total Time:

40 minutes



There are some things in life that just rock your world and these Snickerdoodle Blondie Brownies are one of them!

Here’s the scoop. I’m not even exaggerating when I tell you that my husband told me these Snickerdoodle Blondie Brownies are the best thing to ever come out of the kitchen! And he’s had every single recipe I’ve ever posted on WGC and more! Add to that the fact that Matt, my bff and photographer (who doesn’t even like sweets) couldn’t stop eating these when we were on set and asked for them to be removed from his eyesight because he couldn’t control himself. How’s that for a few recommendations?

Snickerdoodle Blondie Brownies are easy. There are very few ingredients and/or tools needed to whip these bad boys up but that’s the trick! Keeping the ingredients minimal but using exceptional ingredients like Ground Cinnamon, really good quality butter and Pure Vanilla Extract make for the perfect treat.

But back to the Blondies…all the flavors get together and shine bright like a diamond (thank you Rihanna) The cinnamon sugar topping on top doesn’t hurt either. So for all your upcoming holiday parties, cookie exchanges, dessert parties, etc, you’ll need to make these. In fact make a double batch just to be safe. BUT – if you are doubling the recipe – make sure you bake them off in 2 batches. You need the 9×9 baking dish to optimal results!

Servings 16 people


  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 2 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking soda


  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine the melted butter and brown sugar and mix with a wooden spoon or paddle attachment for 1 minute until combined. Add the vanilla and eggs, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl, and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the bowl/stand mixer, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda and slowly mix until just combined. The batter will be a bit stiff, but that's normal.
  • Spray a 9x9 baking pan with baking spray and line it with parchment paper. Spoon the batter into the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top and transfer it into the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Once the blondie brownies have baked, remove them from the oven and let cool for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving.

    I want to make these!!! You specify Ground Cinnamon. Is that something special. All my cinnamon is ground unless it’s a stick. Thanks!!

    This is a great treat that I’ve just made for a summer picnic with old friends. They’re going to love them – as long as I resist eating them before I get there! Thanks for the fab recipe!

    Confession – I cut a corner out 45 minutes into the setting/cooling time. I’m worried that they didn’t cook through – the centre is still a bit gooey. Will it harden after the 2 hour cooling time or did I not cook it for long enough? Can you ever re-bake a dish after it’s cooled or is the recipe ruined?

  6. Christine

    These are honestly some of the best brownies I’ve ever had. I made them for Christmas Eve and Day and my family ate them by the handful. I’m always making them. I call the crack brownies because they’re so irresistible.

    Hi Gaby! Was wondering if you thought I could make these, let them cool, and then slice down the middle and put a layer of ice cream in between? Thanks!

    Making these right now! I have loved every recipe I’ve ever made of yours! Thanks for being a consistent go to for my baking and cooking needs!

  11. Olivia

    I usually don’t have a sweet tooth…but I made a batch of these this week and I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten 2 a day. A fun and easy recipe to whip up and a total crowd pleaser, Cannot wait to make again!!

  12. Kim

    If I only have 8×8 pan how long should I cook? Thanks! Every recipe I’ve ever made from you is amazing!

    • Gaby

      you’ll need to add about 10 minutes because they will be thicker

  13. Caitlin

    I would like to make these for thanksgiving dessert. Is it ok to make these in a 9×13 baking pan?

    • Gaby

      that will change a few things – if you keep the recipe the same it will make them super thin. If you double the recipe then the middle won’t bake properly because there is so much batter. I know it’s annoying but I’d use the 9×9 and make 2 batches so the consistency is the best it can possibly be!

  14. Hidaya

    Hi Gaby! I ran out of light brown sugar and only have the dark one, does it work?

  15. Tamar

    hi gaby! making these for a company bake off and wanted to check – salted or unsalted butter?

  16. Elizabeth

    These are fantastic! I only had an 8×8” pan so I did as Gaby suggested in the comments and cooked my blondies 10 minutes longer than what the recipe states. They turned out great! Soft, great flavor and perfect to take to a get together! Thanks Gaby!

    My son can’t have the gluten can I use gluten free flour and if yes do you have a preference?

    Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie so I might be biased, but these are the best blondies I have ever eaten!

    My kids are super picky when it comes to sweets. I usually make a cake and it sits there, barely touched, for a week. These blondies were scarfed up in four days. Seriously one of the best things I’ve ever eaten – too good for words. I followed your recipe exactly.

  20. Margy

    I just finished baking these in a Pyrex 11×7 pan for 35 min at 325 since it was a glass pan. 30 min out of oven I cut into the corner and they are total goo. What happened? I was going to bring them to my book club tonight☹️

    • Margy

      Two hours after they finished baking they were hard to the touch but a mess of uncooked glop underneath. Total fail and I can’t figure it out. And I was really looking forward to these!

    • Gaby

      Hey Margy – glass doesn’t retain heat as well so that could be the first issue, and they are meant to be baked at 350 in a 9×9… that yields the best results. Baking can be so finicky

    These are SO good! I’ve always made what Gaby’s cooking NOT baking. I was looking for a new brownie recipe and got super excited when I saw this one bc my husband’s faaaaavortie cookie is the snickerdoodle! He is in heaven! I don’t like sweets that much but tasted these bc I mean, I could not resist, and they are damn good!

    Omg, the photos you take are stunning! I just wanna sink my teeth into these fab brownies! These are some of the best brownies I’ve ever had. I could be on a deserted island with these. They’re irresistible, and that’s the only problem. Highly recommend everyone to give the recipe a try. Believe me, every bite tastes like heaven.
    Gaby, thank you so much for sharing this with us. I hope the idea will inspire many of your followers. Looking forward to your new awesome recipes. I’ve just bookmarked your blog. I’ll be coming around often. Keep up the good work!

    Incredible!! Really tasted like cinnamon toast crunch but in a brownie shape. I thought I had done something wrong because it didn’t seem fully cooked when I took it out of the oven, but letting it sit for those 2 hours before cutting was the key! It was perfectly cooked and perfectly moist. Highly recommend. Another A+ for Gaby

    Super easy to throw together! Decided to half the recipe and baked it in a 8×4 loaf pan. Bake time was 35 minutes. Loved the cinnamon sugar crust! The middle sunk in while the edges remained thick but still super tasty!
