Browned Butter Blondies

Truckin' Man is back to work already, thankfully a very short layoff this season. But, my break from packing lunches is over. Time to get that oven cranked up, and some tasty treats packed to keep him fueled up and trucking... Lol... That turned out a little funnier than I meant it too!

I know I was supposed to be sharing some cookie recipes, but for some reason cookies and I are having a rough go of it so far this year. Bars though? We are doing fabulous! So, onward to what is working for me!

I've been making these lovely chewy blondies for years, and they never let me down. With just a few ingredients, this is a recipe I can pull off in a pinch if I need something fast. Truth be told, I've even skipped browning the butter if I really needed to move fast! But the browned butter really adds that something special, so I do recommend taking the time to do that.

Browned Butter Blondies
1/2 cup butter
2 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray, set aside.

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Stir often, until butter turns brown. It will turn brown after it has foamed, and it will turn a golden brown. Remove from heat immediately. Let set until butter has cooled to room temperature. Add brown sugar, stirring until blended.  Stir in eggs, mix well.  Add flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing just until combined.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes, or when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Be careful to not overbake.

  1. They look moist and chewy! And who could resist browned butter?!!

  2. Browned butter really does add something special and these blondies look delicious! I am sure truckin' man is enjoying them in his lunchbox!

  3. I like the looks and sound of these. They should keep Truckin' Man well fueled. I laughed out loud at that. I think these would make a great dessert for my Bible Study group on Sunday evening. Easy enough to make and easy to carry and serve. Thanks.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  4. Howdy Kris,
    So happy to have a new bar to try. Bars are easy to pack in a lunch. I like to cut and wrap them for the boys, easy to unpack and eat.

  10. Did somebody say "browned butter?" Love it! Of course, you probably know I'd cut the sugar at least in half, but NOT the browned butter! These sound delightful, and I'm with you, some days cookies aren't really doable, but bars are.

  11. These sound yummy. Printing off the recipe to give them a try.
