Choco Chip Blondies

After quite a dry stretch, we finally got some much-needed rain on Monday and the weather was just cool enough for some baking.

It was about time because we have been lacking baked goods in this house! So here you have it - my first go at baking "blondies" or "blonde brownies".

These bars are the perfect sidekick for afternoon coffee!

Choco Chip Blondies

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsps. vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Optional 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. Flour and butter 9x13" pan (I used a smaller pan).

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a separate bowl, melt butter and then add sugar; stir together. Add eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and mix well. Slowly add flour mixture.

Pour into pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle chips and/or nuts on top (I added the chocolate chips into the batter instead). Bake for 25-30 minutes.

After cooled, cut into squares and serve. They are best with a cup of coffee or milk!

What is your favorite type of brownie? Plain or something fancy?

Linking up at Wise Woman and Pin It Thursday.
