Recipe by Rob79
Got this from one of my favourite cooking shows (Food Mob on revision3) and thought I would submit it since it's a bit different than the other blondie recipes I've seen on here. Once you try this one you'll never make these any other way! PS: They used walnuts on the show but I prefer pecans.

These make for an interesting & enjoyable change of pace for these 2 chocoholics who really do like their brownies! Very tasty & satisfying! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
- 1⁄2 cup butter, at room temperature (4oz)
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon seeds from two vanilla pod
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans or 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 1⁄2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Cream brown sugar and butter using whisk or electric mixer.
- Add egg and vanilla to brown sugar and butter, mix well.
- Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to mixture and combine until everything is consistent.
- Combine nuts and 1 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips with other ingredients.
- Line 8"x8" baking pan with grease proof paper. If you don't have parchment paper, lightly grease the pan but be forewarned that it will be hard to get these out without ruining the edge pieces.
- Transfer your batter to the baking pan and smooth it out with your spatula as well as you can, try to get it into the corners and make the thickness an even 1 to 1 1/2".
- Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips over everything and lightly press them into the batter with your spatula.
- Bake in 400F oven for 20-25 minutes. Keep a close eye on them and be sure to check them with a tooth pick at 20 minutes. The toothpick should come out with a few moist crumbs stuck to it like brownies, not totally clean like with cake. These only take 20 minutes in my oven and you have to be very careful not to overcook them as they will turn out dry and cake-y if leave them even a minute or two too long.
- Let cool in pan for about 5 minutes and then gently lift the parchment paper out and place on a wire rack to let cool for about 20 minutes before cutting.
- Cut into 16 squares and enjoy :).
