White chocolate macadamia nut blondies are going to quickly become your favorite bar dessert. They’re chewy, soft, and luxurious.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped, roasted, unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by-8-inch metal baking pan with parchment paper, letting the paper hang over the edges for easy removal.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Add butter, brown sugar, and vanilla to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition. Continue to beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until just incorporated.
  6. Use a spatula to fold in white chocolate and nuts until just combined.
  7. Add batter to the prepared pan. Spread into an even layer.
  8. Bake until cooked through and the edges are golden brown, about 40 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.
  9. Cool completely in the pan, on a wire rack. Cut into 16 bars.
