Finally! Blondies Like They Should Be

“I am a HUGE (well, luckily not literally) fan of blonde brownies. So I've been testing/tweaking different recipes for a while. I've finally come up with a recipe that tastes just like I think they should! These are definitely chewy (almost underbaked) with a brown sugar flavor to them.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Melt margarine in a glass mixing bowl, in the microwave. ("Zap" on LOW power until it looks melted).
  3. Stir in brown sugar; add vanilla; add eggs.
  4. Stir in flour and baking powder; stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Spread/pour batter into a 9 x 13" baking pan.
  6. Bake 19 minutes. (Until toothpick inserted 2" from edge comes out clean)Blondies will firm as they cool.
  7. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  8. Variations:
  9. Sometimes I substitute the 3/4 cup chocolate chips for 1/2 cup butterscotch chips. I think that too much of the butterscotch flavor can be overpowering.
  10. My second idea is a little more unconventional as far as blondies go. Omit the chocolate chips, stir in some cinnamon, allspice and ginger.
