Brownies & Blondies

Brownies & Blondies. Something for everyone to LOVE!

Both of these are wonderful alone...OR would make a great Base to another "Bar". I have made a few recently, but wanted to get the recipe for these Brownies and Blondies up first, so I don't have to double write the recipe. 

Mmmmm Good. Love. Love.  All Homemade. Made with Love. Lots of Love.

Let's get right to the recipe. No delay on this one...


1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces.
3 oz unsweetened or semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour. I usually do 2/4 cup wheat and 1/4 cup white. Your choice.
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare 8 inch pan and set aside. In saucepan over low heat, combine butter and chocolate. Stirring often until melted. *Or you can melt butter and chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds at a time until well mixed. 

Remove from heat and stir in sugar and salt. Add eggs (make sure the mixture is cool enough so you don't cook your eggs in the batter before it gets to the oven) and vanilla, stir until well blended.

Add flour and baking powder and stir until just blended. Don't over mix. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter in pan and spread evenly. Bake brownies until toothpick comes out almost completely clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into squares. Enjoy!


1 cup + 2 Tb flour. Again, I would use half of that wheat flour, but that is up to you.
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 8 inch pan.

In saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Heat stir often, until sugar has dissolved. Continue to cook 1 minute longer, the mixture will bubble, but NOT boil. Set aside and let cool about 10 minutes.

Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla to cooled sugar mixture and stir with spoon to combine. Add flour and baking powder and mix until just blended.

Pour batter in prepared pan and bake until center is springy to touch and toothpick comes out clean, about 25-35 minutes. Do not overbake!

Let cool and cut into squares. Enjoy!
