These chocolate chip blondies are moist, rich, and seriously delicious. It doesn’t get much easier than adding everything to a bowl, placing in a pan, and popping in the oven. Then slice into bars and enjoy! Super easy to enjoy as a snack, bring to dinner parties, or share with friends and family.
Oh yeah and this recipe is gluten-free, who would have thought?! If you’re skeptical about not using any flour in this recipe, think again. These blondies are the best chocolate chip blondies I’ve EVER had and a new favorite in my home and with friends.
I wondered this myself what exactly is a blondie recipe and is it technically a brownie? And the answer is that brownies use cocoa / cacao powder while blondies do not.
So if you’re wanting a chewy and fudgy dessert without too much chocolate, this chocolate chip blondies recipe comes in for the win!
Preheat the oven to 350 F /176 C. Use a 9×13 inch pan. Line the pan with parchment paper. I originally didn’t use parchment paper yet parchment paper makes it easier when slicing into bars.
You can place a bit of oil in the pan. Then, set the parchment paper on top of the oil so that the parchment paper stays put.
In a mixing bowl, add in peanut butter, honey, eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and sale. Give it a stir with a spatula.
Gently fold in the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. I prefer to use 2 tablespoons of chopped dark chocolate to top off these chocolate chip blondies.
The chopped chocolate on top melts beautifully and the higher quality of dark chocolate helps give these blondies a rich and insanely delicious chocolatey flavor. You can also use chocolate chips on top too and it still tastes delicious.
Pour the mixture in the pan. Add 2 tablespoons of chopped chocolate or chocolate chips to the top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool. Enjoy my friends! I like to sprinkle a bit of salt on top to enhance the chocolate flavors. This is optional.
