Blondies - Dear Miss Lyss

Are you in the mood for brownies, but maybe not into all of that chocolate?  Then these “blondies” might be the perfect solution!  They are a great combination of a brownie and a cookie containing the consistency of a soft and chewy brownie while incorporating the flavor of a chocolate chip cookie.

I found the original recipe 
here, however my version has less baking powder and excludes the chopped walnuts.  These can also be referred to as “Blonde Brownies” or “Brown Sugar Brownies.”

Note(s):  1. You may choose to include the chocolate chips into the batter before spreading into the pan, but I find they incorporate themselves nicely when sprinkled on top as well.  2. You may use more chocolate chips if desired.
