Chocolate Chip Blondies

Need to bring a dessert to your party? These squares have nuts and chocolate all in one bite!

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Stevia In The Raw
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, preferably dark chocolate

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray, line with a 7 x 15-inch piece of baking parchment, allowing the ends to overhang. Spray parchment lightly with cooking spray.

2. In a mixing bowl, use electric mixer to beat butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add Stevia In the Raw and sugar, beating for 1 minute to combine. Add egg, molasses, and vanilla and beat to combine (the mixture will look curdled). Mix in the flour and salt, making a stiff batter. Mix in the nuts and chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 40 minutes, or  until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean but the center of the pan yields slightly when pressed with your finger. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Lift from the pan and cool on the parchment strip on the rack. Cut into 16 squares.
