Just the right combination of brown sugar, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract make these pecan blondies extra sweet.


  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup chopped pecans or walnuts

  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars, then whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture, then the pecans and chocolate chips.

  3. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
