I love grocery stores, go figure, right? I love wandering through the aisles, checking out random spices, olive oils and fun new products.

However, I loathe those mid-week quick trips to pick up odds and ends and I HATE putting groceries away. Last week, I asked Brian to make a mid-week trip to pick up some pecans and oranges; he came home with walnuts and oranges.

Now, if you have read my blog for a while, you may remember that Brian claims to be “allergic” to walnuts. Is his world, being “allergic” means they bother his tongue and mouth, so they have been banished from my baking cupboard. Personally, I think this “allergy” is a bunch of malarkey. 

Did I just say malarkey? Yes, indeed I did. Hogwash also has a nice ring to it, but we’ll stick with malarkey for now.

Back to the walnuts…he bought them, so I used them {his fault, right?}; this made him exceedingly cranky. He likes to be the first to test my baked creations to make sure they are “up to standard” before he takes them to his ever-so picky coworkers…kidding, they eat ANYTHING!

To sum it up, Brian did not taste these Walnut Chocolate Chunk Blondies, so I had to. My verdict? They were good, not amazing…I thought they needed something, but could not put my finger on it. More butter? More Sugar? More vanilla? No walnuts…MORE walnuts? If you make them and figure it out, please enlighten me! If you have not checked out my facebook fan page, you may want to head over there and do so…something rad may just post there on Friday!

Walnut chocolate blondies are a delicious and easy bar dessert. They're perfect for parties or tucked into lunch boxes.


  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Large pinch salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8x11-inch baking tray with foil, leaving some overhang on the sides.
  • In a large, heavy pan, gently melt the butter. Add the sugar, stir well, and remove from the heat. Let cool for a minute, then add the eggs and vanilla, stirring well.
  • Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder over the butter/sugar/egg mixture. Stir only until thoroughly blended, but don’t beat or overmix. Fold in nuts and chocolate.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until just firm.
  • Cool for a while in the baking tray, then lift the bars out using the foil, transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Remove the foil and cut into squares.

    I haven’t made these ones but I have made blondies before and I always use melted white chocolate in mine, just as I would use melted chocolate in my normal brownies! So maybe that’s whats missing? Just a thought :) I melt the chocolate with the butter so adding the brown sugar at this process would make caramel brownies I guess :)

    I have been searching for a good blondie recipe and I think that I am going to try and experiment these and use pecans in stead of walnuts :)

    I have just made these today and I agree, they need something… more. A little more sweetness perhaps, but also they are more of a cakey consistency – no fudge or gooeyness about them at all. But still delicious with a cup of coffee. They certainly wont be going to waste in my house.

    So I tried these because I love making blondies and I’ve never tried it with choc and walnuts. For some reason, it came out really really doughy (kinda like bread or something). I think the 3 cups of flour was too much (but I didn’t know that at the time). OR maybe I made a mistake somewhere? Not too sure.

      Sorry about your experience with these being doughy…I did not think mine were bread like at all. Dense, but not doughy. As I said in the post, I thought they were missing something…just could not figure out what! Have a great day and thanks for letting me know your experience with these!
