Easy-peasy blondies with brown butter and brown sugar for a nutty taste and soft texture. Honey roasted peanuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips balance out the flavors. Ready in just 25 minutes!
What a June I’ve had! I’ve been traveling almost every weekend in June! First we went to Virginia for my birthday, then to Pittsburgh, then to Missouri. This is the first weekend I’ve been home! I haven’t had a lot of time to bake, but fortunately I was able to set aside some time a few weeks ago to make these blondies.
These are actually adapted from some cookies I made a few weeks ago for the youth group that Brian helps out with. I came home from visiting him and wanted them again- but didn’t want to dedicate the time needed for cookies. I wanted to mix a batter, press it in a pan, and have a dessert in 20 minutes. So I decided on blondies, and got my wish (and cravings) in 20 minutes.
I adapted a recipe from Averie Cooks because her base blondie recipe is ridiculously easy to remember and make, and turns out every.single.time. 1 stick butter, 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and an egg. I browned the butter and used all brown sugar, resulting in soft, chewy and not-at-all-cakey blondies. AKA, the best kind.
I tossed in some honey roasted peanuts and chocolate chips, which complement each other perfectly. I bet these would be great with white chocolate chips, too!
