🧈 Brown Butter Blondies Recipe – Easter Special 2024


  • 3/4 cup (170 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (200 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 3/4 cup (95 g) bread flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chopped dark chocolate if desired)


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with cooking spray and line bottom and sides with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • To brown the butter, melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Once melted, begin stirring occasionally. The butter will begin to crackle and pop and foam will form at the top. Continue stirring. Once sizzling sound stops, continue stirring often until golden brown bits begin to collect on the bottom of the pan. The butter will smell slightly nutty and aromatic. Remove from heat. Pour the butter and the dark bits of milk solids into a large bowl. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

how to make chocolate chip blondies

  • Meanwhile, whisk together the flours and salt. Set aside.
  • Once the brown butter is slightly cooled, add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and whisk until well combined, about 1 minute.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk for 1 minute. Mixture will be smooth and glossy.


  • Add the flour and salt mixture and stir with a large spatula or wooden spoon until barely combined. Stop when a few streaks of flour remain. Do not overmix.
  • Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Transfer the dough into the prepared pan and top with more chocolate chips if desired.


  • Bake on the center rack of the oven for about 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is set. Do not overbake.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.



  • Store remaining blondies tightly covered for up to 3 days.
  • May be frozen. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store flat in a large freezer bag for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature before serving.

Recipe FAQ

Q1. Can I make these gluten free?

Yes! These blondies bake up perfectly using a gluten free flour. Make sure your flour blend has xanthan gum in the ingredient list. I like this one from King Arthur Baking.



Q2. Can I double the recipe?


Absolutely. You can double the recipe and bake in a 9 x 13 pan.



Q3. Can these blondies be frozen?

Yes, they freeze beautifully! To freeze the blondies, cool completely and then wrap in two layers of plastic wrap and store in a large freezer bag for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature before serving.



Q4. How do I store the blondies?


For maximum freshness, store the blondies tightly covered at room temperature for up to 3 days. To keep them fresh for longer, I like to slice off a square one at time rather than slicing the whole batch at once.
