Blondie Brownie Bar Cookies
I had to share this recipe because I’m not usually a fan of blonde brownie bars because they usually end up dry & crackly on the top & raw and gooey in the middle. NOT the case with this recipe. This recipe made bar cookies that had more of a texture of a real cookie, which I like. We made them in a 9×13 pan. Half the pan we added chocolate chips too, the other half we did not. This was easy to do by just sprinkling the chocolate chips directly on top once the batter was spread into pan. So if you have some non-chocolate lovers you could make half with & half without!
Honestly I didn’t know what to title these, blondie brownies or blonde brownies? I’ve heard them called both.
We used a glass pyrex 9×13″ baking pan. I’ve always been a fan of the glass baking pans. I think they bake the food more evenly then metal.
- 1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
- ½ cup salted butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- Optional: 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13" baking pan.
- Using a large mixing bowl, mix the brown sugar, butter, eggs & vanilla just until blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to brown sugar mixture. If using chocolate chips hand stir them in.
- Spread into a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool then cut into bars. Makes about 3 dozen.
