Chocolate Chip Blondies

I wanted to bake something different, not just another cookie and even though these blondies are very similar to cookies it was nice to not have to separate them into separate cookie shapes. Plus these have a different taste. I would say this recipe is like a hybrid of a chocolate chip cookie and a brownie...very good.

1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with two pieces of foil. Spray the foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.
3. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
4. Whisk the melted butter and brown sugar together in a medium bowl until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
5. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined. Do not over-mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and the nuts and turn the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula.
6. Bake until the top is shiny and cracked and feels firm to the touch, 22 to 25 minutes. Place the pan on a rack and cool completely. Cut into bars and enjoy!
