  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mix-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, or a combination)

Recipe Directions

Step 1: Preheat and Prep

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

Step 2: Melt Butter

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the unsalted butter. Allow it to cool slightly.

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and packed light brown sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, whisking well after each addition.

Step 4: Combine Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.

Step 5: Add Mix-ins

Fold in your choice of mix-ins, such as chocolate chips, nuts, or a combination. This step adds texture and flavor to the blondies.

Step 6: Bake to Perfection

Spread the blondie batter evenly in the prepared baking pan. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Be cautious not to overbake for a chewy texture.

Step 7: Cool and Slice

Allow the Easy Blondies to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, slice into squares or bars.
