Maple-Pecan Blondie Bars
This simple and yummy treat is a staple in our home. Maple sugar gives you that little extra flavor.
Servings 18 squares
- 1 cup (2 sticks butter) softened
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup granulated maple sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs room temperature
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, maple sugar and brown sugar. Add the salt, vanilla and eggs and combine. Add the flour, baking soda, powder and combine. Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula a few times, making sure everything is thoroughly combined.
Add the pecans and chocolate chips and combine gently.
Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Spread the dough into the pan as best you can.
