  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • If you’re using butter, place it in a skillet and turn on medium heat. Let cook until it becomes brown and has a deep, caramel scent. Watch it carefully and do not burn it! If you’re using the brown butter ghee, skip this step and move on to step three.
  • In a high-powered blended like this, combine the blondies ingredients, using a tamper tool if necessary to get the ingredients combined well until you have a smooth batter.
  • Grease an 8 X 8 baking dish and pour the batter into it, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula so that it’s smooth and even.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until it’s cooked in the center. Cook more if you like more cake-y blondies and less if you like them fudgy.
  • While the blondies are baking, put the dates in your blender (make sure they’re pitted) and turn it on high.
  • Slowly pour the hot water in until the dates blend into a nice, thick paste. I like the caramel pretty thick, but if you like a thinner consistency, add a little more water.
  • When the blondies are done baking, let them cool for 15-20 minutes before spreading the caramel on top, then sprinkle the coarse salt over the blondies before cutting and serving.
