Print Recipe


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, browned and cooled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


For the Brown Butter

  • Place butter in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the butter becomes bubbly, fragrant and nutty smelling - swirl and stir as needed
    Watch closely for small brown bits to begin forming on the bottom of the pan - this will happen around 5 minutes
    As soon as you begin to see brown bits in the butter, remove the butter from the heat
    Transfer butter to your mixing bowl and allow to cool for a few minutes before proceeding with the recipe

For the Blondies

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9 x 9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper making sure that the paper comes up over the edges of the pan.
  • To your brown butter, add the light brown sugar and mix until well combined. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Gently fold in the salt and flour. Add the chocolate chips and mix until well distributed. 
  • Using a spatula or your hand, spread the batter evenly into your prepared pan. 
  • Bake for 17-18 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. 
    Remove blondies from oven and allow to cool in the baking pan for at least 30 minutes. Use the edges of the parchment to pick up and move the blondies to a cooling rack. Cool for an additional 30-45 minutes before cutting into squares.
    Blondies can be stored in a airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
