Chocolate Chip Blondies

Makes 16 Squares

Ingredients

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag or the equivalent of your favorite sweetener
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chocolate chips, preferably dark (63%) chocolate

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray, line with a 7-inch x 15-inch piece baking parchment allowing ends to overhang. Spray parchment lightly with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, use electric mixer to beat the butter until fluffy, 2 minutes. Add stevia and sugar, beating for 1 minute to combine. Add egg, molasses and vanilla and beat to combine; the mixture will look curdled. Mix in the flour and salt, making a stiff batter. Mix in the nuts and chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

Bake for 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean but the center of the pan yields slightly when pressed with your finger. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Lift from the pan and cool the blondies completely on the parchment strip on the rack. Cut the blondies into 16 squares.
