Cannabis-Infused Citrus-Caramel Blondies
2 – Didn’t like it
Editor’s Note: This recipe has been modified from the version developed by Sarah Simmons to include cannabutter instead of regular butter. You’ll find the original non-cannabis recipe here.Sarah Simmons came up with these moist, chewy blondies when she was left with extra caramel after an event. The little bit of orange zest is lovely with the sweet-salty caramel. Slideshow: Delicious Dessert Bars
In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar with 1 tablespoon of water and bring to a boil. Using a wet pastry brush, wash down any crystals on the side of the pan. Boil the syrup over moderately high heat until a deep amber caramel forms, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately whisk in the cream, butter and Maldon sea salt. Let the caramel cool to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray an 8-inch square metal baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and line the pan with parchment paper, allowing 1 inch of overhang on 2 opposite sides; spray the paper. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the kosher salt and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk the unsalted butter, Premium Cannabutter, and brown sugar until combined, then whisk in the eggs and orange zest. Add the flour mixture and stir until just incorporated.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan in an even layer. Drizzle the caramel over the top, then swirl it decoratively using a toothpick. Bake the blondie for 25 to 30 minutes, until it is golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Let cool completely. Lift the blondie out by the overhanging parchment and peel off the paper. Cut into bars and serve.
The blondies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Each serving contains about 8 mg THC based on the Premium Cannabutter recipe and a 20% THC strain of cannabis.
Maldon sea salt has a great crunch and a remarkably subtle, briny flavor. It is available at most grocery stores and online.

Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies
This page may contain affilliate links, view our full disclosure here.
These Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies are the same delicious cookies you already know and love made with cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabutter for a delicious medicated cookie.
Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies
Are you interested in using cannabis to improve your health?
Many of my students prefer cannabis edibles for the simple reason that they are better for you than smoking (you avoid those nasty lung problems), but a lot of cannabis-infused recipes out there can be bad for you in other ways.
If you’re seeking the benefits of cannabis, rather than to get high, then it’s important that you eat a healthy diet. That is where our cannabis recipes come in.
Theoretically, you could transform any peanut butter cookie recipe into a cannabis-infused peanut butter cookie recipe by simply substituting cannabis-infused oil or cannabis-infused butter for regular oil or butter.
However, that may not get you the best overall results.
Why Eat your Cannabis?
Consuming edibles will result in you absorbing cannabinoids more slowly and thoroughly, which is preferred for many people.
This is particularly important if you are using CBD for its health effects, like to manage anxiety. Also, you don’t end up smelling like cannabis and can enjoy your edibles in front of others without people realizing you’re medicating.
You can buy edibles, including healthy ones, but as with so much else, it’s cheaper to make your own. Just make sure to keep them in a separate jar.
Also, be aware that because of the slowed absorption, if you’re eating edibles to get high some people have been known to overdose because they think nothing is happening, so they have just a little more, a little more, then pow.

Despite that, edibles are generally better for you than smoking. However, if your edibles are chock full of sugar, are those gummies (no nutritional value there!), or contain ingredients that are bad for you, then you’re doing it wrong.
Cannabis should not be the healthiest ingredient in your edibles, but it often is. Cannabis gummies are one of the most popular ways to indulge, especially recreationally, and we all know about candy…
To enjoy your CBD in a healthier manner, consider making your own edibles, including your own cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter (it’s not that hard).
This also makes sure that your edibles don’t inadvertently contain something you happen to be allergic to or have had problems with in the past.
Cannabis-infused food doesn’t have to be junk food, but it can still be a tasty treat that you enjoy.
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
If you are looking for a delicious gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe, we have had great success with using cassava flour. Swapping cassava flour for traditional all-purpose flour makes these cookies gluten-free.
These cookies can also work with the Paleo diet if you use seed butter in place of peanut butter (cassava is not a grain, but a tropical root vegetable).
You can generally get cassava flour at your local Whole Foods or even Wal-Mart, or you can order it online. Check your supermarket first though; with the growing popularity of the Paleo diet, it’s become a lot easier to get.
Gluten-Free Cookie Recipe Note:
To make these cookies gluten free, use the same recipe below with the following changes:
- Add another egg for a total of 2 beaten eggs
- Swap 1 cup cassava flour with ¼ reserved for the traditional all-purpose flower
- When following the instructions, only add 1 cup of cassava flour at first. Add the reserved ¼ by the tablespoon, as needed, to get the right consistency in the dough
Dairy-Free Cannabis Cookie Recipe
This recipe is dairy-free if you use cannabis coconut oil rather than cannabutter. You can always adjust the recipe as needed if you do not need to be dairy or gluten-free.
If you want the full effect, don’t forget to decarboxylate your raw cannabis first. You can also use this oil as a substitute for cannabutter in any edibles recipe.
In other words, this recipe is accommodating to more diets than “normal” peanut butter cookies, whilst still being absolutely delicious and a great vehicle for your CBD or cannabis.
Again, you can use any peanut butter cookie recipe, but this recipe is healthier, especially for people with dietary restrictions
Don’t like (or can’t eat) peanut butter? You can also make this recipe with homemade hemp seed butter.
