Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. 1 bowl and 10 minutes is all you need to make these blondies!
Browned butter makes everything better especially these chocolate chip blondies!
These blondies are ridiculously easy to make. You only need 1 bowl, 1 spatula and 10 minutes of prep time!
Browning the butter is easy and adds so much flavor to the blondies. Simply heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for about 5-7 minutes swirling the pan occasionally. I recommend using a lighter colored saucepan when browning butter. It makes it easier to tell when the butter is browning and helps from burning the butter.
After you have browned the butter stir it in with both sugars and vanilla. (I like to allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes before adding the egg). Fold in flour, baking soda, salt and spread the batter into an 8 x 8 pan. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. I like to slightly under bake mine so they are nice and soft on the inside.
When they come out of the oven I let them sit for at least an hour to cool before serving.
These Chocolate Chip Blondies are best served warm with a big scoop of ice cream on top!
Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all purpose flour

- 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
Add butter to a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat. Cook butter stirring continuously until it turns golden brown and smells nutty. This takes about 5-7 minutes.
Pour the butter into a large bowl along with both sugars and vanilla. Allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes.
Stir in the egg and mix until incorporated.
Fold in the flour, baking soda and salt. Try not to over mix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread batter into the prepared pan and bake for 18-20 minutes. They should look set on the top.
Allow them to cool for at least and hour before slicing.
