Ingredients

  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (such as Diamond of California)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 inch baking dish. In a large bowl cream together melted butter and brown sugar. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.
  • In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Spread into prepared dish and bake for 20-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean.
