  • cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground espresso or coffee can sub instant coffee as well
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Line a square 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper on all sides and preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugars, egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and ground espresso until light and pale in color, about 1 minute.
    ⅔ cup light brown sugar, ¼ cup granulated sugar, 1 large egg, 1 large egg yolk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon ground espresso or coffee
  • Slowly stream the hot melted butter into the bowl, whisking constantly to combine.
    ½ cup unsalted butter
  • Fold in the flour, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips until just combined.
    1 cup + 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour, ⅔ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, ¼ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt
  • Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and press a few more chocolate chips on top if desired.
  • Let the pan cool completely on a wire cooling rack before cutting, then enjoy!


  • Step-by-step process photos are provided above, in the body of this post.
  • Use a kitchen scale: Baking with a scale is faster, easier, and overall much more accurate than cup measurements.
  • Use high-quality ingredients: Using high-fat European butter, good-quality chocolate chips, and espresso will give you the best tasting, bakery-worthy blondies!
  • Underbake the blondies: You should remove the pan from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the center is covered in moist crumbs but no wet batter. They will be soft and gooey in the center this way!
  • Baking times may vary: All ovens are different, and your bars may bake quicker or take longer than the indicated baking time. I recommend always checking on them occasionally and testing for doneness!
  • Cool before cutting: I know it's SO hard to wait but cutting them while they are still warm will cause them to fall apart.
