Chewy Butterscotch Sea Salt Brownies

Chewy Butterscotch Sea Salt Brownies from Happy Simple Living blog

These golden brownies are always a hit at our house, and the combination of sweet, sticky brown sugar, butter, and a dash of sea salt creates a complex, sweet-salty flavor that makes your mouth sing. The recipe is super-easy, you probably have the ingredients in your pantry, and because these brownies are light brown you can sneak in some healthy whole wheat flour. Shall we make a batch?

Chewy Butterscotch Sea Salt Brownies

1 cup (4.25 ounces) all-purpose flour (any combination of regular and/or whole wheat flour will work)
1 teaspoon baking powder (I’m a big fan of non-GMO Rumford brand)
1 cup dark brown sugar (why do they even make light brown sugar?)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup (half a stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8- by 8-inch glass square baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar and sea salt. Add the melted butter, egg and vanilla and stir just until combined. The batter will be thick. Spread it evenly in the pan and bake for about 25 minutes, or just until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack and cut in 2-inch squares. 16 brownies.
