Today's recipe is an easy but a delicious one.
I love recipes that are easy adaptable to one person's likings.
In this one, I used cranberries :), but you can choose raspberries, strawberries, any berries you like or have on hand.
Same goes for the chocolate, choose what you want. I thought that the white chocolate will complement the cranberries well.
|I love burst berries in baked goods!|
These blondies are incredibly fast to put together. I recommend letting them cool though. They are easier to cut and chewier than when warm. But hey, if you can't stop yourself - I say go for it! I did 🙂

1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c butter, ( 1 stick )

1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c fresh or frozen berries ( I used frozen cranberries )
1/2 c chocolate chips ( I used white chocolate )
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Let the egg and butter sit on the counter top while you get everything else ready.
Grease with shortening or line with parchment paper 8" square pan. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder and salt ). Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add the brown sugar. Stir in with a wooden spoon, add the egg and vanilla extract. Stir.
Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
Pour the batter into your pan. Sprinkle the berries and chocolate on top. You can use the spoon to distribute them into the batter.
