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.

    When the twins don’t like something they never say they don’t like it. They always just say they “don’t want it”. LOL, used to drive me crazy until I figured it.

    Despite the blondies’ lack of flavor they look good.

    Happy Friday!

    hahaha – hogwash! What a great word! I’ve only tried to make blondies once and they didn’t turn out very good. I might have to give this recipe a try!

    Haha I have a roommate who feigns a food allergy when she doesn’t like something. Although I know for a fact that she has eaten things that contain her so called “food allergies”. Silly people =) I think the blondies look GREAT!

    Haha! My husband does stuff like this all the time and, in fact, did the EXACT same thing about a month ago – brought me walnuts instead of pecans. Oh well, we love both :)
