A thick and buttery bar cookie loaded with white chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts. This blondie is a taste of tropical heaven with every bite.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 heaping tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9 inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and line bottom and sides with parchment paper.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Stir occasionally as the butter continues to turn a golden amber color and bits of browned butter fall to the bottom of the pan. This takes about 5-8 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and pour the butter into a bowl through a fine mesh strainer.
  5. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  7. Add both sugars to the browned butter and stir to combine well.
  8. In a large measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla.
  9. Add the eggs and vanilla to the browned butter and sugar mix and beat with a hand mixer for one minute on medium until fully combined and dough is glossy.
  10. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, fold the flour mixture into the dough in two batches until just barely combined.
  11. Add the chocolate chips and nuts and gently stir to combine.
  12. Spoon the dough into the prepared pan and use a spatula or your hands to press the dough evenly in the pan.
  13. Bake for 30 minutes until center is set and blondies are golden brown.
  14. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.
