Can I Use Frozen Blueberries

Yes, you can make these blueberry lemon brownies can be made with frozen blueberries. You will need to let the berries run under some cool water. Then keep them in a colander with a bowl underneath of it to catch all the juice that runs off. Discard the juice or use it to add to smoothies or ice tea. Draining the juice is important so the blueberry lemon blondies turn out properly. 

What Is The Difference Between Lemon Brownies and Lemon Bars?

Lemon brownies are more decadent and similar in texture to a traditional brownie. They can be seated when they are warm. Lemon bars are a lot of times not baked and even if they are, they should be eaten cold. They are similar, but are different all at the same time. 

How To Know When Blondie Bars Are Done

When the blueberry lemon blondies are done, you should notice that the edges begin to pull away from the pan. Another way to tell is that the top should be able to be lightly touched with your finger and bounce back up. Lastly, sticking a toothpick in the center gives you an indication if they are done or not. If it comes out clean, then they are done and if it has food stuck to the toothpicks they need to cook a little bit longer. 

Can You Freeze Bars?

Yes, you can freeze these lemon brownies! Simply allow them to cool off all the way after baking. Then you can either freeze the entire batch together or put them in individual servings. I like the individual servings to throw in the lunch box or for a quick snack. 

Either way, wrap the blueberry blondies up with a plastic wrap or tin foil. Then put them all in a freezer-safe container. Make sure the lid fits snug and air can’t get to the brownies. Before serving, they can be defrosted in the fridge overnight or sat on the counter until thawed. The brownies will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
