Chewy Chocolaty Gingerbread Blondies

Dark, chewy and flavourful. That’s how we like our brownies and these gingerbread blond brownies fit that category perfectly. They’re loaded with warming spices, molasses and just enough chocolate chips to add a little gooeyness. Think of these as brownies with personality.

Dark, chewy and flavourful Gingerbread Blondies. Also called blond brownies, these squares get extra flavour from spices and lots of chocolate chips.

  • Author: Crosby’s Molasses


  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2  cups flour
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix the melted butter with the brown sugar, then stir in the molasses, egg, and vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and spices.
  4. Add flour mixture to butter-sugar mixture and mix until just combined.
  5. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  6. Spread in prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. of chocolate chips and press them into the batter ever so lightly.
  7. Bake 40 minutes until the blondies start to pull away from the edge of the pan. Bake a little longer if you prefer a firmer blondie.
  8. Cool completely in pan and cut into squares.

    These are so easy to make and so yummy. Just the right balance of chewy on the outside and soft inside and I think that I like them better than brownies. Great flavour and a new hit in my household.

    Your emails contain recipes that cannot be printed without downloading virus-laden software. This is very disappointing. It means that I can’t print the recipes out, so it’s a complete waste of time.
