If you love chocolate chip cookies and brownies, then you will absolutely love this chocolate chip blondies recipe.
What is a blondie?
Blondies are essentially a vanilla based brownie. They don't contain cocoa powder like your average brownie, but they do have plenty of chocolate chips which is always a win. They're rich, decadent, and an all-around sweet dessert. If you're a huge fan of brownies and love vanilla-based desserts, then you will love these.
Gluten-free and dairy-free options:
Making this recipe gluten-free is very simple. Substitute all-purpose flour for gluten-free flour, same ratio.
There are a few steps to make this recipe dairy-free. Substitute butter with margarine or a neutral-flavored oil like vegetable or canola, and use dairy-free chocolate chips. I have successfully made this recipe gluten-free, as well as dairy-free. Just keep in mind that you'll get a softer dough if you use oil instead of using butter.
🍫 1 stick + 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
🍫 1/2 cup white sugar
🍫 1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
🍫 2 large eggs
🍫 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
🍫 2 cups all-purpose flour, spoon and leveled
🍫 1 teaspoon baking soda
🍫 1 teaspoon salt
🍫 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a square 9" brownie pan.
In your stand mixer bowl, add in your softened butter and beat it with the paddle attachment for about one minute until light and fluffy. Add in your sugars and mix until creamy - about 3 minutes or until you get a grainy paste.
Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.
Sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix to combine. Make sure not to over mix.
Fold in your chocolate chips.
Spread your dough evenly into the pan, using a spatula or the back of a spoon to get it up to the sides of your pan.
Bake the blondies for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick from the center comes out clean. Allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before diving in.
Tips and Tricks
Spoon and leveling is the proper way to measure your flour. Scooping your flour with the measuring cup, you'll end up with way more flour than you want. Make sure you take a spoon and scoop the flour into the measuring cup and level it off with a knife. Click here to learn more.
If you're using oil instead of butter or margarine, make sure you only use 2/3 of a cup.
Feel free to add nuts or white chocolate chips to these. Have fun with your creations.
