My Favorite Blondies

I'm a fan of blondies.  I love the brown sugary goodness, especially when combined with dark chocolate.  Add almonds (like these ones right here) and I am a a very happy camper.  This is a more basic recipe - very easy to make, and so tasty.  I always come home with an empty plate when I bring these along.

My Favorite Blondies

1-1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted (can also use coconut oil)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 10 oz. pkg. dark chocolate chips (you can use semi-sweet, but I highly recommend the dark)

Add butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla to a large bowl and mix until just combined.  If you want to combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl and then add, you can, but I'm lazy and just added it all in, and then combined with the brown sugar mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  The mixture will be a little more "sticky" than a cookie dough.  Spread into a parchment-lined or greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350° for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool, and slice (a plastic knife makes nice, clean cuts for brownies and blondies - try it!).
